Precisely organised blocks including a kitchen and laundry, bookshelf, pull out wardrobe and storage, have been slotted into this apartment.

The bookshelf is designed along the entire wall in a space between the kitchen block and the windows. In order to leave the window free of any obstacle for opening, a deepening was made in the structure of the bookshelf at the intersection of the wall and the window. Thus, there is a place for hanging chairs for guests. Stainless steel legs are embedded in the structure of bookshelf to endure loads of its weight and books, as original walls had become old and tired and may not withstand loads.

The oak block contains a kitchen, hidden behind folding doors with plenty of storage for all client needs including a vegetable unit with ventilation, plate holder, pullout table and refrigerator. next to the kitchen block a wardrobe with washing machine, cleaning and laundry accessories are placed. A curtain embedded in this block separates the bedroom and bathroom from the living zone making them more cosy and private. Using product design knowledge, each element of the kitchen has been designed, prototyped and built.
