The ultimate resource for modern apartment design and renovation, featuring hundreds of creative ideas from around the world, curated by the author of Open Concept Houses and the 150 Best design series.
With the explosion in popularity of urban living, more people are trading houses for high-rises. But these sophisticated urbanites don't want to sacrifice the expansive feel that a house affords. The answer is open concept apartments. By eliminating doorways and walls, open concept design blends separate areas for cooking, eating, and entertaining into one breezy, bright, large, unconstructed space. Special touches--from furniture to lighting to accessories--can be used to subtly define each area, creating a sense of expansiveness and intimacy.
Open Concept Apartments brings together a number of examples from all over the world--from New York to Sydney, Chicago to Rio de Janeiro, Santa Monica to Tel Aviv--that magnificently illustrate this popular design trend. Showcasing the vision and brilliance of distinguished international architects and designers, each of these apartments--including both original constructions and renovations--have been created using practical and functional solutions that suit the needs and tastes of their individual clients.
Packed with more than five-hundred pages filled with gorgeous and inspiring before-and-after color photographs, as well as handy floor plans, Open Concept Apartments is an essential resource for architects and interior designers and an inspirational guide for every apartment dweller.
