This Berlin Apartment Manages to Be Totally Adorable in Only 900 Square Feet

Collection by

This colorful apartment packs a big punch in a small footprint.

Modern home with Living Room, Chair, Bench, Coffee Tables, Shelves, and Concrete Floor. Architect Ester Bruzkus of Bruzkus Batek redesigned a compact apartment in Berlin to serve as her home. The previous layout had two bedrooms and one bathroom, but Bruzkus created an open-plan arrangement with only one bedroom to free up space. A folding wall can be pulled out for privacy. Custom furniture joins pieces by Charles and Ray Eames for Herman Miller and Gervasoni. The bathroom is enclosed within the black cube, which can be entered from either the bedroom side or the living room side. The paintings are by Berlin-based artist Niki Elbe.

Modern home with Dining Room, Table, and Chair. A polished concrete floor was selected for its durability.
