When a busy young man turned to Boq Architekti, he asked her to redesign his compact Prague apartment so that it is the perfect crash pad when he’s in town. The 36 square meter apartment had recently been divided into two separate, walk-in rooms by the developer, which meant they didn’t tear everything down. Instead, they designed the manor cave based on the original layout. When you look at this cool and minimal apartment you will never believe that it is so small – there is everything a person could need to live here!
In the middle of the room is a large kitchen island where you can cook, dine or socialize with friends. The island was designed so that customers can meet their guests while they are cooking and not have their backs turned to them. Narrow wooden shelves for works of art, books or collectibles hang on the back wall. Simple white cabinets with dark fittings and worktops are offset with warm wood details that make it much more homely.
The other room houses the living room and the bedroom. Due to the customer’s busy schedule, the bedroom is hidden by sliding doors so that he can rest during the day if necessary. Doors can also be left open while the dark blinds are down to keep out natural light without closing. A built-in desk sits under the window and has a drawer to hide clutter. A pane of glass forms part of the partition wall so that the customer can enjoy the sunrise if desired.
