Earlier this year, I featured this cool showflat with transparent walls from Edge Design. Well, I tried to resist, but I can’t help showing off another one, this one known as the “Lime Habitat.” The transparency of the walls helps one visualize the compact use of space and envision a life in the flat.
Even with the transparency of the walls, there is no one shot that really makes the layout of the flat clear, so we’ll just start in the kitchen. Minimalism is the rule here, with a simple set of cabinets installed above and below the counter. With their non-distracting design, the emphasis is on open space, not clutter. This image also demonstrates that there is still a place in kitchen design for smaller sinks. It is sometimes worth it to free up all that counter space.
This living area maintains the simplicity of the kitchen.
The space can be reconfigured simply by shifting the walls. I have no idea if the walls are only translucent/transparent for the purposes of showing off the flat design, or if the architect actually builds homes with these types of walls, but I personally think they are visually stunning. I like that the translucent walls transfer light and color, but still provide some element of privacy. I would love to start seeing this in regular tiny houses, not just experimental showflats.
The furnishings in the flat fit in well with the layout. A lot of right angles are featured. This individual desk is a functional work of art.
Just looking at the way that the angles merge together and the way the surfaces interact is beautiful.
I first saw the translucent walls of Edge Design quite a while ago. I had thought by now that I might see them turn up in other structures by different design firms, but I still have not come across them anywhere else.
This last image is my favorite. The way that the light flows through the living room is amazing. The large glass walls make you feel like the apartment is floating in the sky.
I highly recommend checking out the entire portfolio by Edge Design. This is just one of many impressive architectural works.
