Untouched since its construction in the 1950s, Luini, a once poorly organised small apartment located in central Turin in Northern Italy has been redesigned from the ground up by architect and owner Davide Minervini turning it into a colourful and practical home 39sqm.

Minervini flipped the living and sleeping areas, completely reconfiguring the layout to make more efficient use of space and to suit his lifestyle needs better.

Adding creature comforts not usually present in small spaces like a home for his PS4, a substantial work-from-home area, an expanded bathroom, a small laundry and even a walk-in wardrobe. 

With the new kitchen cleverly hidden by recessed folding doors and custom built-in furniture added throughout, Luini captures the comfort of a larger home in a much smaller footprint.
