Apparte Studio has completed an incredible renovation on this single fronted Victorian Cottage that proves with the right architecture and design, limited space has no boundaries.
This originally cramped, dark and damp Victorian cottage has been transformed into a light-filled, flowing and uplifting home, while still referencing the original features of the house. The project is unique in the fact that the architect was also the builder and joiner, which provided the opportunity to test out ambitious ideas and their consequences during the construction.
One of the special aspects about this project is the play of contrasts between the modest facade and what lies inside. Like a veil of camouflage, the front gives nothing away of its contents and remains perfectly anonymous.
This home is only 60m2... no that is not a typo! So the brief was "How might a professional couple live comfortably inside a formerly tight and dingy Victorian of no more than 60m2?" And to add to the challenge, an extension was out of the question due to budget constraints, so all changes had to be made inside the existing structure.
