The limited space and layout made the project challenging. After the renovation, the entrance on the first floor leads to the living area which also incorporates the kitchen. It’s an elongated room with windows on both ends.Throughout the apartment, the rooms have pale wood floors that add a nice cozy vibe while maintaining a simple and modern appearance. There are also wood-paneled surfaces that increase the cohesiveness of the interior design.
