Reconstruction of Wei Gate—The Bund Micro Apartment

by Shanghai muka Architectural Design Co.,

Projet Description

Architects rely on professionalism and ingenuity to create a small and beautiful minimalist life in micro-apartments for young designer owners. The architect retained the original steel structure loft bed, and through the metal on-site welding and painting and polishing, made extremely fine grilles and handrail lines to echo the metal custom elements. The architect wanted the 31-square-meter space to fully accommodate various owner’s needs for living, study, and work. They needed to make good use of every space for storage, such as stepping as a drawer for baking varnish, and a box under the platform as an openable device, etc.
