The Makeover…It’s Personal – The Master Bedroom with Walk-in Closet and Ensuite Bath

The demolition and construction started in our service kitchen that will house our future Master’s Bedroom.

Since the whole house will apparently be uncomfortable to live,  we decided to prioritize the bedroom as originally planned and suggested to the architect.  This will be the Phase 1.  The room will accommodate my whole family during the renovation period.

We wanted the same requirements as in our previous one, but we wanted it to have a high ceiling, bigger space with the open shelves walk-in closet and ensuite T&B as usual.  The architect suggested making a customized king size bed frame with headboard, including the side tables.

This room has been our common bedroom, our refuge from all dust and mess from outside and temporary storage.  It was definitely an unwelcoming idea for my wife, but does she have any choice?  Even if it was not yet ready for the installation of the air-conditioning unit, it was immediately installed.

Simple tiles and simple fixtures allow the bathroom to feel open and comfortable, while at the same time, carefully curated decoration avoids an overly utilitarian aesthetic.

Occupying the space below the mezzanine level, the bathroom is surprisingly bright and spacious with plenty of natural sunlight throughout – with a large vanity mirror to maximize its effect.

Guests and residents enter the apartment through the kitchen, the bathroom conveniently through the door to the right hand side. This sensible layout maximizes the amount of sunlight in a space that would be fairly dark otherwise.

Open wood shelving allows for display of attractive coordinated utensils and tableware while deep cabinets hide everything else above and below.

Appliances take a conservative approach by remaining mostly below the countertops. The washer and dryer used to reside in the bathroom but once you see the bathroom’s fresh new style, you’ll see why the designer moved them.

Limited in terms of vertical space and natural lighting, the kitchen makes the best of its circumstance with bright white surfaces and smooth concrete floors.

The ceilings aren’t especially high so the loft keeps furniture very low to the floor. Pillows make it easier to sit cross-legged at the desk for longer stretches of time.

From the bedroom, it’s easy to catch a glimpse of the neighboring apartment building or admire the living space below. A half-wall offers just enough privacy to help the resident feel secure.

Compact stairs lead to the bedroom loft with kitchen and bathroom beneath. Note that the designer didn’t pass up a chance to integrate more storage space under the first few steps. Smart!

Split construction gives the dining table more functionality for its footprint. This configuration maintains a streamlined form against the wall, appropriate for working on a laptop or sitting down to write a letter.

Because of the resident’s frequent travel, the books don’t require constant access. The sliding ladder makes them easily available when needed with several shelves within easy access of the loft.

Furniture remains as simple as can be. Each piece scales to its specific niche without flaw, the tatami sofa tucked into the window alcove and the dining table matching the width of the alcove’s edge.

Located in Taipei, Taiwan, this apartment simplifies its interior to the most basic elements in order to stretch its 22 square meter layout. The ceilings reach 3.3 meters in height – somewhat low compared to other interiors with mezzanine levels but more than enough for this designer to work with. The resident (a frequent traveler) required ample storage for clothes and books along with wide-open space for exercise, which the designers accommodated without sacrificing any of the essential amenities of home.


210 Square Foot MODERN Tiny House- WITH NO LOFT!


A Modern Loft with Character

Loft apartments always have a distinct feel. Their openness, combined with their usual amounts of streaming light, makes them instantly appealing for most urban dwellers. Who wouldn’t want more light and a sense of more space in what’s usually a more crowded area? But lofts can also feel a bit cookie cutter, especially when the original space has been mass-converted to support loft living. A dozen or more lofts with the same feel and layout can feel stifling. This loft, designed by Indot, takes the idea of a traditional loft and plays with it using geometry, color, and texture. Don’t think that lofts are just limited to red exposed brick and neutrally painted walls.

Family Home in Vietnam With Lovely Pockets of Greenery: BQ-17 Residence

23o5Studio completed the design of BQ-17 Residence, a contemporary home located in an uncrowded neighborhood of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The design was adapted to the living needs of a couple and their three children, while taking in consideration the laws of urban planning. Local legislation required to leave 2.5m (8ft) front and 2m (6.6ft) behind the house, which somewhat challenged the initial plan of developing the construction more horizontally. According to the project developers, the solution was to “build interleaving spaces, which have different foolproof, placed around a central vertical space”, thus creating voids and connections between rooms.

Minimalism is the key feature of this residence; yet, quite a few elements stand out: “Seen from outside, the house has simple lines, yet strong enough to combine cubes as a sculpture. Lot of squares, with different sizes and free layout, joined with graceful greenery to attract people and make them curious about entering inside. The squares become highlighted from the front door to the central block. They do not only get natural light for the house, but also create an aesthetic effect at night.” By employing wood extensively for the furniture elements, doors, floors and central staircase, the designers achieved a welcoming family atmosphere-have a look!
