When a couple is just starting out it can be a challenge to find a place that is both affordable and comfortable so that they can embark on their new life together. Studio apartments for couples may seem cramped while bigger modern apartments are just too large for those who might be saving up to have a family soon. The three apartments featured here offer limited space, but make up for it in the creative use of that space, making room for the couples as well as their favorite pastimes.
The first space is built around the central living area, with private spaces spiraling off of that main room. Tall ceilings make for an open atmosphere and light fixtures are kept close to the ceiling in a way that ensures the space does not become too closed off. The bedroom and guest room are both visible from the main living area through interior windows, with curtains that can easily be closed when privacy is required. The color palette is largely neutral with a few brighter pops of yellow for a youthful glow.
The second home is a 70 square meter (753 square feet) studio who had limited space but still wanted to be able to host parties. iN order to accomplish that, the designer has left the floor plan open and make the different larger pieces easy to move and slide around to create a central gathering (and karaoke) spot. Despite the small size there is still plenty of seating, a comfortable work space and a cozy dining area.
In this last home, the simplicity of the design makes it feel very welcoming and approachable. The design is for a young family and the vibrancy of the colors in use, as well as the playful fixtures and streaming sunlight, certainly feel as if a child would be able to get along here.
