TS Apartment, a home in the popular Cascade neighborhood of Yerevan, Armenia, might ostensibly be seen as a strange and potentially even uncomfortable living space. Thanks to historic design decisions beyond the architect's (local firm snkh studio) control, the apartment's layout is the inverse of a normal home, with the bedroom and bathroom on the main floor and the living room and dining room on the upper floor. However, TS Apartment's design elegantly leans into this flipped arrangement, making it not only comfortable but attractive.
A clever design decision in making TS Apartment livable given the layout was in how snkh studio structured the main bedroom. The apartment's owner is a social person, and he wanted to be able to host gatherings, so the studio made the main floor bedroom adaptable to both sleeping and socializing.
