This nifty little apartment is a project that was completed in 2012 and is located in Wroclaw, Poland. Designed by the Polish architecture firm 3XA it is a very clever little space that makes the very most of a humble 29 metres squared. The colour palette is simple, welcoming and warm. The light dances gently over the natural surfaces and even the use of black is applied in such a manner that it adds depth and character to the space rather than coming across as overpowering or heavy.
There is a real sense of geometry to this little abode. The straight, crisp lines of the stairs, the hard edge of the overhanging mezzenine, and the simple square kitchen elements, are ever-so-elegantly juxtaposed by the subtleness of the black diamond floor tiles, the stained floor boards, the soft wavy curtains, and the textured, rugged white wall. Albeit its small size, the apartment is so rich with different surfaces, materials, and lines of vision that let the eye dance over the different elements.
Now, one wouldn't know any better unless being in on the secret, but that little door at the end of the cute diamond tiled floor corridor is actually a blind door. It leads to nowhere... it doesn't open... But what a wonderful way to deceive the senses and make one believe that there was more to this little apartment than just 29 square metres.
