Torquay Compartment Apartment
Never Too Small • Documentary
Architect Jean Graham from Winter Architecture together with the client and their carpenter designed a unique space designed for a family of four. The Compartment Apartment divides and arranges the 45m2 space to allow every family member a sense of privacy. Scandinavian style interior fittings using re-purposed joinery for kitchen and new converted Ikea furniture expands the utility of the space and storage. While curtains separate rooms from each other but still allow light to pass through; maintaining a sense of what's beyond.
