But is it really necessary, remove the old to build a new one.
KDVA Architects think differently. Project NP62 is a studio apartment of 31 m2, it is an apartment with a modified layout.
We made one opening in the load-bearing wall from the kitchen to the living room, all the other walls and partitions were left unchanged.
The whole apartment is divided into clear areas: sleep, rest, work, kitchen, dining area, bathroom, wardrobe and a hall with a closet in which a washing machine and a water heater hides. Two tables on a metal frame, designed for the kitchen and workplace, can be connected to one dining table and can accommodate up to 8 guests, if necessary. A cube made of plywood forms a sleeping place for two, and contains a very capacious hidden space for things.
