Four small apartments, each measuring under 70 square metres. Beautiful design features and clever furniture placement round out these layouts in a way that makes them look well beyond meagre proportions. A brave accent palette of pumpkin orange helps define different areas in apartment number one, whilst 3D gypsum panels build pronounced texture. An elegant composition of warm metallics, amidst pale grey features, fashion an airy and refined aesthetic in small apartment number two. Third, a dark grey modern pad has a wide open bedroom layout into the living room, which makes no apologies for its dominant presence. Last up, a loft with lots of wood finishes. Open space and free flow rules in all four, without any notion of limitation.
The last is a 70 square meter loft adorning sumptuous wooden finishes. | Visualizer: Lacin Quluyev.

To the side of the lounge arrangement there is a small kitchen with a dining bar. A two ring hob and sink take up much of the countertop. However, changes in materials make the space look more than its proportions, with wood tongue and groove building a special backsplash, and raw concrete marking out the dining spot. Glass pendant lights drop in a trio along the length of the bar – one for each place setting. | 33 |.
The third in the tour takes us around a 62 square metre loft apartment in a historic building, located in Saint Petersburg, Russian Federation. A tangle of black AIM pendant lights drop over a sophisticated black and blue lounge that’s furnished only with a modern sofa and a stylish square coffee table. | Visualizer: Dmitry Moshkov.
