NEVER TOO SMALL ep.13 27m2 Tiny Apartment Design – Darlinghurst Apartment


The design of the apartment was all
about containing the amenities for life to the smallest possible area and to
provide a bigger space for living The apartments located in a building
called Ballina which is an art deco 1920s Heritage listed property. There’s 27
units in the this block I first moved into this apartment at the beginning of
2014 when I got the apartment there was a little kitchen in its own separate
nook we decided to be a good idea to put the kitchen or living space and a
bedroom where the kitchen was The apartment was really designed for two
people so the idea was that would function like a one-bedroom apartment so
the bedroom can be completely closed off we have this little pocket window
integrated into the storage wall so the idea is when you walk in the front door
and that window is opening you can still see out the view and the apartment is
significally wider than just the width of the living space. We built the bedroom
on a platform to delineate the space between the living and the sleeping area
that also allowed us to get plumbing to needed to go and install some shoe
drawers. There’s storage underneath the bed there’s storage on top of the bed and
there’s a little recessed shelf which acts as a bedside table and has lights
and powerpoints and those windows along with the windows
in the living space were left in their original condition so the external
facade remains untouched Below the TV there’s a little desk which can fold up
and allows you to use the TV as a second monitor and we included a 24 bottle wine
storage cupboard so we didn’t want the kitchen to feel like kitchen we hid all the appliances included in the oven behind the little pocket door we put a
drying rack above the sink so that you can put your dishes away to dry we’ve
got a blade wall which is made out joinery and integrates a spice rack on
the kitchen side and as you come into the apartment that’s got the intercom
hidden away inside the little key shelf to put stuff on so. We completely hit the
bathroom behind one of the sliding doors on the main wall when we first got it
there was a massive bath which we ripped out and was replaced at the shower and a
washing machine Good design is not only about making a smaller footprint work harder but it’s also creating a really great quality of life and a sense of
luxury in a tighter space and inevitably that provides sustainable solutions for
our cities. Thanks for watching subscribe to our
