The 27-year-old top-floor condo had limited access to sunlight and a space-eating false ceiling. As a solution, interior designer Alex Kwan of Museum removed the ceiling and turned the kitchen and bathrooms topsy turvy, leaving nothing but the marble and parquet flooring behind. The $350,000 overhaul produced a brighter and more open interior with a light palette that doubles as a “blank canvas” for the owner’s display of art works. Throughout this 2,700sqf home, a modern-geometric theme is seen in the abundance of recurring bold, black-and-white lines as well.
This attic-like mezzanine, which was introduced after the renovation, is where the homeowner works. Its slanted roof and bold ceiling bars create visual interest and lend a modern masculine appeal to it.
After hacking the false ceiling, the homeowners were able to enjoy a luxurious double-volume space, characteristic of a loft. Not to mention, the open space allows for thick, contrasting lines to imbue the interior without looking too crowded.
