Belgium-based Dethier studio has created unusual design of apartment by turning the old bakery`s attic into unique living space.
Everything is simply organized and incredibly laconic here; every item is performed in minimalist style, yet the atmosphere is quite futuristic. This apartment is an example of a human dwelling, located somewhere at the interplanetary station or built some day in the distant future.
The aluminum capsule with diverse functions is used instead of partition walls, making the interior look rather unusual.
All zones are united here, namely: work-room, living room, kitchen, dining room and bedroom with dressing room. The space is divided in two parts: bedroom is located “in the north” of the attic, whereas the living room has found its place “in the south”. These parts are separated by the alien-looking aluminum capsule with rounded edges.
It is necessary to note, that this capsule plays an important role in futuristic apartment`s design. Apart from dividing the premise on zones, it also encompasses several premises of different purpose.
One of the capsule`s walls, located from the living room`s side, is a home cinema. The bedroom with bathrooms are located on the other its side.
Being located at the center of the room, this capsule becomes the main decoration element of this unusual apartment. In order to fill the area with air and light designers used white color. However, it was necessary to add some bright colorful emphases to bring the life and dynamics into the static atmosphere.
This was achieved through colorful bathrooms, which became vivid emphases in attic-apartment`s creative design. One of the bathrooms is tiled with orange planches; the other is covered with striking light-green tiles. These tiles are lighted and fill the room with technicolor through round illuminator-type windows.
The terrace, which provides a spectacular view on the city, is a big advantage of this apartment. Its floor is covered with larch; this tree resists the rot and successfully withstands both snow and downpours.
