The Small Apartment In Vilnius – How Petite Turns Big
We saw how, through a play of colors, small decorative tips and intelligent furniture, a small room can suddenly become larder both literally and figuratively. We will this time take a look at a case study and see how a small 64 square meter apartment in an old house in Vilnius, the Lithuanian capital, turned into a vast and welcoming space, bathing in light, without even disclosing a hint about its real size.
Found in a building in the old town in Vilnius, the apartment got a whole new look which looks completely different from the classy traditional landscape all around. The home got a contemporary and trendy facelift which strikes you first thanks to abundant light radiated all around. The images shown by website Decoist.com suggest the apartment lies in the attic of an old building, which made the designers’ work even more challenging.
Instead of further dividing an already limited space into smaller, congested rooms, the architects opted for an open plan living area and a bedroom that does away with unnecessary partitions. A long corridor leads into the living space, with a sleek kitchen workstation and dining space on one side and the bedroom on the other. A wall with a contemporary two-sided fireplace, with wood storage space above, separates the living area from the bedroom, while a unique ceiling and large windows bring in ample natural light. The white walls and the cabinets also help spread natural and artificial light across the apartment.
In the kitchen, the back wall kept its old brick look, breaking up the white chromatic domination, but perfectly matching the wood floor which runs across the whole space. The bedrooms was simply decorated, with storage spaces neatly integrated, against a consummate color harmony in which white and brown shades are the main components. We will let the images below speak thousands of words about the transformation of a small apartment into a space replete with comfort and vitality alike.
