Small Grand Apartment, Melbourne

Set inside the heritage-listed Grand Hotel building in Melbourne CBD, the aptly named 50sqm/538sqft Small Grand Apartment has been meticulously transformed by the team at tsai Design into an open-plan, minimalist space by the use of clever, multi-functional design.

The picturesque kitchen blends seamlessly into the living area, containing an 8m wrap-around countertop that continues into a cleverly concealed bathroom.

A custom-designed credenza forms both a TV cabinet and seating for dining in the living area whilst also supporting a bespoke drop leaf table, convertible between desk and dining table. All of this ensures that the apartment’s aesthetic is as clean as possible while maintaining flexibility.
