Small Grand Apartment
Never Too Small • Documentary
Set inside the heritage-listed Grand Hotel building in the Melbourne CBD, the aptly named Small Grand Apartment has been meticulously transformed by the team at tsai Design into an open plan, minimalist space by the use of clever, multi-functional design. The picturesque kitchen blends seamlessly into the living area, containing an 8m wrap around countertop that continues into a cleverly concealed bathroom. In the living area, a custom designed credenza forms both TV cabinet and seating for dining, whilst also supporting a bespoke drop leaf table, convertible between desk and dining table. All of this ensures that the apartment's aesthetic is as clean as possible, while maintaining flexibility.
