Kevin Apartment, Hong Kong / JAAK Studio

Kevin Apartment

The Kevin apartment appeared Japanese not much in its way of decor but in its way of space planning. The original 2 bedroom apartment is broken free into 1 flexible studio space.

By repartitioning the apartment, an Engawa ( an in-between space between indoor and outdoor in traditional japanese architecture ) is created, maximizing light penetration into the interior while doubling as circulation space.

As the apartment has a tight space budget, storage space has to be carefully arranged. Plenum space above restroom is indented with shelves from outside; Bed space is on a raised platform to create storage underneath.

Kevin Apartment 2

To avoid visual clusters in a petite space, appliances are hidden behind white oak built­in closets and shelves. By creating a cleaner visual appearance, space is maximized on a mental level as well.

Kevin Apartment 3

The opening above the working desk is fitted with a retractable curtain in order to provide privacy when needed (ex. Partner’s late night working session).
