“White is the most wonderful color because within it you can see all the colors of the rainbow. The whiteness of white is never just white; it is almost always transformed by light and that which is changing; the sky, the clouds, the sun and the moon.”

The overall mood of the project can be described as sensual minimalism. The apartment remains spacious despite there are separate kitchen/dining and living room, study and extensive storage. Kitchen and dining room also includes additional storage hidden by the curtains. Living room and study for two people are also separated by curtains. In the bedroom the curtains can miracously transform the space. The milk white color and the glossy texture of the curtains produce the effect of constantly changing atmosphere depending on time of the day and inner or outer lighting.  There are no chandeliers at all, but built in custom made laconic LED ceiling lights that doesn’t prevent to feel the height. WC have the whole ceiling lit up.

The storage is hardly visible but effective. In the living room minimalist wall conceals the library and TV when it is open and there are multifunctional wardrobes in the bedroom and in the hall. They are custom made according to the sketches to fit right in. The storage system is not only secret of this apartment. There are bedhead made of detachable pillows, invisible hangers, closet lift system and moody backlighting.
