Apartments DesignSource : A part of the DesignSource series, this book presents a selection of apartments that aims to serve as a source of inspiration to both the average homeowner and architect in search of ideas on how to design or improve their own apartment space. The manipulation of light, surface area, and ceiling height, combined with an adequate choice of materials and use of colors and textures can transform a dull and inanimate space into a luminous, spacious, and attractive interior. By introducing multifunctional furnishings and layouts, apartments can also easily integrate an office or studio space, or provide all the necessary domestic functions within a very limited area. The wide variety of apartments shown here displays an ample range of design solutions that suit an extensive number of apartment types, from single-room studios to loft style residences. Featuring the work of designers and architects from around the world, the selection takes the reader on a visual journey through stunning private interiors located in the world's major cities, exhibiting the latest trends in contemporary design.
