Making the most of small spaces has become one of the most important pre-requisites for architects in cities all over the world. With housing prices in Sydney some of the most expensive in the world and the reality of becoming a homeowner particularly burdening it’s great to source inspiration from people who are maximising small spaces. This particular apartment in London’s Charing Cross designed by VW + BS architects utilises pivoting doors, folding screens and a mezzanine level to add floor space but maintain privacy as desired. The oak floors and joinery are understated and combine with the white walls to deliver a contemporary feel complemented by the restored Victorian french doors that open to reveal the new deck, original iron railings and the street below. It’s simple and elegant and it’s something to aim for!
