In-between Architects converted a 3-bedroom apartment into open plan living using sliding panels
Compact living is always one of the major design challenge in Hong Kong. Nano apartments become a trendy alternative for affordable housing in the world's most expensive urban center.
To re-imagine this 800sq.ft 3-bedroom apartment for a young lawyer couple who enjoys working at home and hosting for guests, In-between Architects use fluted glass sliding panels to open up cluster of spaces into open plan living, and provide privacy when necessary. Corridor is completely eliminated to achieve a multi-purpose lounge area as centre of home, allows various happenings from reading to yoga.
Lighting is carefully designed and with the use of Wever & Ducré flexible track system, it allows easy inter-changing between multiple light sources including spotlight, LED strips and pendant lamps.
