A former factory is transformed into a pared-down space by the CEO of Danish design company Vipp.
The owners have retained the airy feel in their kitchen with a cantilevered, floating island unit. Being able to see the floor across the whole room maximises the sense of space, and the shape of the unit is echoed in the all-in-one cooker hood and cupboard structure suspended above. Shiny surfaces in metal and glass add to its futuristic feel.
1/9 Centrepiece kitchen
2/9 Open-plan living
There are 2 seating zones in the apartment - the main one is a calming oasis between the large outdoor terrace and the music zone, complete with piano.
3/9 Pared-down living room
To maintain the building's expansive, open-plan feel, the owners have kept internal walls to a minimum. Instead, carpets, groupings of furniture and even two olive trees are used to define zones.
The Papa chairs are Jonas Lindvall for Skandiform.
4/9 Dedicated music area
The owners have created a zone of the living room dedicated to music, with a piano and bespoke shelving.
5/9 Indulgent master bedroom
6/9 Guest bedroom with original artwork
Although it is open plan, each area links with the next. Privacy for the bedrooms is ensured by placing them away from the main living area and behind one of the few walls in the apartment. Its restful, and clutter-free. The painting in the guest bedroom is by Danish artists Sos Brysch.
7/9 Gilt bedroom mirror
A gilt mirror that belonged to the owner's mother has pride of place in her bedroom.
For a similar gilt, antique-style version, head to Overmantels.
8/9 Cool guest bathroom
9/9 Relaxing master bathroom
This space is all about relaxing, and even has a flatscreen TV and surround sound for when the owners want a lazy bath. The look in both the apartment's bathrooms is simple and typical of the whole home's pared-back aesthetic.
Bathroom accessories are available from The Conran Shop.
