Welcomed by the views of an all too familiar sea that never stays the same, the family of four was charmed by the ever-changing hues of the city skies. It echoes back to memories of old, when everyday would begin and end at a walk along ‘The Seaface’.
Different spaces dance seamlessly between themselves – encompassing the entrance foyer, the living, the dining and a dual-functional private study for contemplation or an eclectic extension to the living experience.
This amalgamation of spaces comes together to form the ‘day areas’ or ‘active spaces’ which maintain a clear spatial and visual connect throughout. On the other hand, the two bedrooms lie nestled away and diagonally across each other. These constitute the ‘night areas’ or ‘spaces of retreat’.
Spaces converse with each other with subtle textural juxtapositions. Every design choice accentuates an unspoken affair between the ‘home’ inside and the world outside where the seas and skies paint themselves in hues of a setting sun – hues that the interiors complement and contrast as the day wears on.
The changing landscapes beyond the windows bridge the spaces with shades of light and shadows they cast inside, lighting them up with a singular glow. Glass has been introduced between the kitchen and the living space to allow the light to percolate further into the apartment. Transparency and openness have been maintained as a direct response to the location of the apartment all the while respecting the privacy of its inhabitants.
‘That Apartment’ is a reflection of their story, a longing to create a space that becomes a part of a familiar dialogue of memories, with every word etched into the very space they now call ‘home’.
