Originally a modest two-room apartment, this abode in Berlin Germany was the subject of a successful renovation project by spamroom , johnpaulcoss. Even though it features just 226 square feet of space, it offers modern amenities and facilities that are able to sustain a comfortable lifestyle. The two initial rooms were represented by a bedroom and a kitchen, which means that the bathroom was shared with the rest of the building’s inhabitants.
The owner replaced the kitchen with a bathroom, which created a series of challenges for the architects. They eventually decided to remove all of the interior walls and to make us of every available inch of space. The bathroom walls and ceiling were built up to a minimum inner height, and this allowed the re-use of the extra space above the bathroom and entryway. The upper part of the ceiling acts as a deck for a sleeping mezzanine, and it also includes a few storage areas. The bathroom ceiling enjoys natural light due to an upward facing skylight, which frames the space on one part of the mezzanine in order to facilitate the creation of a bookshelf. The original lower floor is linked to the new upper level via a steel staircase, which can also be used as a storage space for books should the need arise.
As far as decorations are concerned, Art Nouveau elements were favored by the clients.
