A Small Space Filled with Light

A Small Space Filled with Light

For a few weeks I haven’t visited HomeDesignFind.com, which means when I finally got around to it I needed to spend a morning looking through all the new posts. While there have been numerous great designs posted I really liked their post on Studio Associato Archiplan‘s compact urban home in Italy. It was appealing to me because the design was simple and could easily fit in a small urban lot. It does so while appearing large from the inside, providing a large amount of light, and keeping the living space private.

 

 

 The floor plan looks compact and relatively small, but the pictures really show the amount of light and the illusion of a greater space it brings to this house.

This shows the impact a small courtyard can have on the house. The space is completely private and divides the space between spaces in way a simple wall cannot.

Directly opposite of the courtyard is the only window in the main space which faces the outside world, still hidden by the large kitchen island.

Outside the house is unassuming, with only the patio showing a hint that people actually live in the space.
