A Modern-Minimalist Look for a 24sqm Unit in Makati
The Philippine School of Interior Design graduating students plan an ideal space for two college friends
What can you do with a 24sqm home? The Philippine School of Interior Design (PSID) graduating students explore the possibilities through Studio 24, an interior design exhibit with 24 different units that measure 24 square meters each.
One of the 24 spaces is a studio unit for Vince and Kevin, two college friends who are both pursuing their bachelor's degrees in Industrial Design! Here are the 4 things that we noticed first in this shared space:
The Deconstructivism-Inspired Style
Deconstructivism is an architectural movement that challenges traditional design concepts. Inspired by this particular style, graduating students Aira Katrice Uy, Mean Suzette Vasquez, Janine Louise Rubi, Leona Gail La Madrid, and Kenan Cardenio chose chaotic lines, irregular elements and mixed materials for this 24sqm unit.
The Well-Planned Space
Since Vince and Kevin are students, bandmates, and avid gamers, they both need enough space for studying, making music, and playing video games.
With this in mind, the design team carefully planned the studio unit, leaving more than enough room for two drafting desks and an entertainment area.
The Useful Niches
To further maximize the limited space, the design team also created niches that would serve different purposes. The study chairs have built-in shelves for books and the entertainment wall has ledges for the flat-screen TV, gaming consoles, and even four fish bowls!
Surprisingly enough, there are also two niches for the boys' beds! These space-saving details also look fun and playful.
The Streamlined Appeal
Another way to make the most of a small space is to create a clean, sleek, and streamlined look. The absence of mess and clutter opens up the space immediately.
Studio 24 will run from October 3 to 31, 2015 at the Ronac Lifestyle Center, Paseo de Magallanes, Makati City. Admission is free.
