Though connected as a single space between the living and dining area, pockets of informal spaces are designed into the common area to maintain intimate interaction between the guests and owners to create an open yet intimate relationship in the space. 

In the living, a continuous low console, paired with dark wood and textured wall paint was designed as an informal seating area for guests and owners to interact.

To maintain the same language of being open yet intimate in the dining area, the central island was kept compact to encourage closer interaction between the owners and guests. 

To maintain privacy in this apartment, the existing master bedroom – now a walk-in wardrobe and the common room were swapped and lined with flushed cabinetry and a full-height pivot door to conceal the entrance of the bedroom to provide privacy for the owners.

Framed by thin black frames and a lower ceiling, a seating nook was created as a dedicated space to pause while encouraging intimate conversation.

The hidden door also allowed the existing master bedroom to be turned into a walk-in wardrobe that is directly connected to an en-suite bathroom while the bedroom acts as a dedicated space for sleeping, creating a more ideal flow between the spaces.
