From the modest 52 square meters to the more generous 142-square-meter apartments, every unit inside this revamped building has a charm of its own and showcases smart spatial design. The façade of the building itself is preserved and given a new sheen in white, gray and colorful graffiti! On the inside, it is a neutral color scheme coupled with open plan living areas, comfortable bedrooms and minimal bathrooms that set the mood. Some of the apartments also bring home eco-friendly goodness thanks to vertical living walls and generous decks filled with greenery.

A particularly interesting feature of the 2-story apartments inside the building is the way in which the living rooms occupy the upper floor while the bedrooms are snugly hidden on the lower level. Periscope-style custom windows connect the two levels visually with the overall flow of light being left unhindered. A truly exceptional makeover that challenges the rigid perceptions that surround urban apartment design… [Photography: Dion Robeson]
