The main living area has an open floor plan with a gourmet kitchen. The wraparound mezzanine has sitting areas all around and overlooks the main living area below. The master bedroom has access to a balcony with view of the courtyard. There is a stone wall in the lower level which provides an interesting contrast to the modern staircase. The apartment design includes a two-storey high cathedral window and skylights which allow plenty of natural light to spread through the entire loft.
This modern apartment with spectacular ocean view is designed with an earth tone palette that draws inspiration from its surroundings. The stone floor, brown furniture, modern decor and natural colour palette provide a casual atmosphere that allows you to focus on the view outside.
The interior design of this beautiful modern apartment in Kaliningrad, Russia pays tribute to the Baltic Sea nearby. Wall photos of the beach and ocean as well as pebble tile flooring in the bathroom are just some of the small touches that highlight the theme.
The Linked Hybrid apartment complex in Beijing, China is an innovative residential development designed by Steven Holl Architects. Eight 22-storey buildings are connected by pedestrian skybridges at their upper floors, encouraging residents to walk around the “neighbourhood”. The ground level is a public urban space with a hotel, restaurants, shops, a school, a cinema and an elaborate courtyard garden with a reflecting pool that becomes an ice-skating rink in the winter. This 21st-century residential architecture design offers a groundbreaking model for mixed use urban space that creates an open city within a city.
