A small condo can be just as stylish, functional, and comfortable as any big house. This potential is realized in a 40sqm bachelor pad owned by Francis Flores. In the hands of interior designer Wilmer Lopez, this weekend home now allows Francis to relax, unwind, and try a few of his ideas for his dream bar and lounge.

To make the one-bedroom unit more spacious, Wilmer first converted it into a fully open 40sqm unit. His next step was to create an industrial look by taking down the ceiling to leave the plumbing and wiring exposed. The walls were also stripped of paint and covered in bare, stark concrete. As the space is also a way for Francis to explore the possibilities of having his own business, the bar was made the focal point of the entire area. It is distinguished from the rest of the pad by the black-and-white chevron pattern on the floor. The space defined by industrial, mid-century modern, and classic interior design elements is completed with furniture from Space Encounters.
