Home > Winners > #46794


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
House on the 12th Floor

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Apartment

INSPIRATION:
The present design for the apartment’s interior is a conceptual play that attempts to humor the client’s original wishes for a house with a garden. As such, the interior design is based on two aspects: a functional diagram that gives ample space to all areas in the apartment along with a main hall that has an A-shaped ceiling, simulating a gabled roof. A vertical garden tops it off: a house and a garden.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The present design for the apartment’s interior is a conceptual play for the interiors of a 450 m2 apartment on a 12th floor. The intention was for this apartment to symbolise the ideal of a house with a garden. As such, the interior design is based on two aspects: a functional diagram that gives ample space to all areas in the apartment along with a main hall that has an A-shaped ceiling, simulating a gabled roof, as well as a vertical garden on the dining area’s wall.
