Black and White Apartment Design – Room 407 Project in Tokyo
Black and white designs have always been and will be a top notch choice for most of us, it`s easy to implement and it matches high end textures like glass and aluminium.
The apartment that we are going to present is in a rather special place, in the financial district of Tokyo and as you would expect it represents the home of a couple with a busy lifestyle. Panda Studio, the architects that have been entitled to renovate this home, stated that the couple asked for a variety of storage solutions, disguised in openness and transparency. Another important argument was the open plan living room which will clearly accentuate the interior space, making it feel bigger along with the stark white which brings brightness within.
The apartment includes a master bedroom, study room and guest room which can be later converter in the child`s room. As you would expect the need of storage created plane surfaces bringing into viewers perspective spaces clearly defined by materialized limits.
Panda Studio states:
“All rooms are located in sequence along the new diagonal axis. The black and white diagonal split creates exaggerated perspective effect so that the space feels more spacious. And rooms that require privacy are located at both ends of the spatial sequence.”
While we do love black and white spaces and compositions, we feel that this ain`t it. That feeling is mainly created by the disposal of the furniture and electronics only. If we would see the interior space simple, quiet, with no furniture I think we would read the space as being much more dynamic and fluid but here, after the pictures are immortalizing the way a life is being lived in there, it just does not seem quite ready or up to the task, the difference of materials does not really have a clear effect behind the chromatic one, the disposal of the dinning table stops the fluid dynamic of the long interior space, the TV just sits on this table rather then floating on the huge white ocean behind it, it just looks way to static for such an amazing interior space. Do not get me wrong, I love every piece of furniture in that apartment and I do like the pictures but something does not quite match.
We do have a wide selection of black and white designs on the website and we are strongly suggesting to take a peak at these:
