LITTLEMORE INTERIOR DESIGN has shared photos of a small 380-square-foot (35 sqm) apartment in Hong Kong, that includes both a custom yoga wall and a coffee bar.
The apartment, designed for a couple, needed to include dedicated spaces for each of their interests. This resulted in a yoga wall and a coffee bar standing side-by-side in the middle of the rectangular living and dining area without affecting the movement inside the apartment.
A custom safe and secured yoga wall with rope hooks and belts allows yoga to be practiced at home, and when a workout ends, the only thing to do is to pack up the yoga mat and relax, rather than travel from a yoga studio to home.
Adjacent to the yoga wall is a custom wooden coffee bar with a round top that’s been designed especially to display and store essential equipment and ingredients.
The nearby open kitchen has glossy white cabinets, while a movable drop-leaf table of the same height as the cabinets acts as an extension of the countertop for food preparation, and has a top that matches the main countertop.
The leaf of the movable table can be folded out easily to transform this small yet flexible piece of furniture into a desk, a dining table, or part of the coffee bar. When moved, it reveals a hidden washing machine.
The kitchen looks out onto the living room, where natural light from the windows and the full-height glass balcony door flood the interior, keeping it bright.
Instead of a standard concrete wall separating the bedroom from the living room, there’s a framed panel wall glazed in the upper part, with a wooden lower part. To further elevate the bright and relaxing atmosphere, a calm, soothing color palette of pastel olive green and white wall paint has been combined with floor tiles in oak wood and light wooden furniture.
