The pared-back apartment aesthetic is on the rise as many design firms look to embrace industrial minimalism in its purest form. The raw element of the style undoubtedly introduces a contemporary feel that is defined by edgy elegance.
The building was erected in the early 2000s and the interior was in dire need of restoration. London-based practice Merrett Houmøller Architects was tasked with completing the job, breathing life to the "awkwardly shaped and uninspired interiors."
The firm sets the vibe of the pared-back apartment with exposed walls that subtly hint toward the desired theme. Many juxtaposing motifs are introduced to the space thereafter — from the large partition that is crafted from walnut wood to the "hit-and-miss" stairs that carry a rich sculptural quality.
