Bloor St. Apartment

Type: Renovation Concept 
Date: Winter 2020

    This renovation concept was an exercise in solution-based design for a small space. The roughly 400 sqf. apartment had a number of challenges- non existent storage, an impractical kitchen, and windowless rooms. The client requested the following: a larger bathroom, laundry, a quieter bedroom that does not face onto street (but still gets light), southern and western light distributed better throughout, more storage, a kitchen work triangle, and a feeling of openness.
          The end result is a bright and open apartment that capitalizes on it’s potential while tackling the increasingly relevant challenge of designing small spaces in a large city
