Asymmetrical geometric panels open up to reveal hidden storage in this ultra-minimalist Lazarz, Poland apartment. Black lines slice through the stark white space, criss-crossing the room. Inlaid with custom lighting fixtures on the ceiling, the lines also create unexpected shapes in the cabinet doors that cover personal items like books and the television.
Working with a limited budget of just €8,000 (roughly $11,000), Mili Mlodzi Ludzie architects came up with an incredibly creative solution that meets the client’s expectations for minimalism while also integrating plenty of storage. What looks, at first glance, like a very bare space, actually conceals all of the clutter accumulated by the average apartment dweller.
Even a desk and the kitchen are hidden behind these geometric panels. The only color in the apartment comes from a throw rug in the living area.
The dramatic, eye-catching black lines are echoed and accentuated by streamlined monochromatic furniture and a slim black ladder leading to a sleeping loft.
