What do architects do when they have the freedom to design their own interior or the interiors of their family? Architect Lauren Reik experimented with ideas to create a contemporary interior in her grandmother’s apartment.
The main transformation involved removing all the interior walls, leaving only the beams and a column. The plan that Reik designed was based on the creation of two spaces; an open space living area that includes the kitchen and hosting spaces, and a large bedroom that includes a workspace.
The white walls and floor prevail in the apartment, bringing purity, freshness and light in the entire interior, creating harmony with the greenery outside. The large windows in the living bring additional light. Reik added greenery to the space by suspending a tree branch to the wall. Miniature cacti in planters hang from the branch with fishing line. The apartment is minimalist, without too many decorative elements.
The bedroom/workplace is also white and offers a more inspirational and relaxed atmosphere. Reik created a simple and stylish interior that meets all modern requirements and at the same time gives a warm and intimate atmosphere through the design, colors and furniture.
