Support from our fans means we can make more episodes of Never Too Small. Find out how you can support us at 🤍🤍patreon.com/nevertoosmall Situated in Bukit Panjang, which directly translates to long hill in Malay, the aptly named Gradient Space took inspiration from the abundance of nature and natural sloping terrain surrounding the urban area. The talented team from METRE Architects made no alterations to the floor plan and existing built-in cabinetry of the new studio apartment, opting for all design interventions to be additions. The key element being a single sloped gradient containing bed, sofa, working come dining table and coffee table all fused into one, the space and function changing as you move up and down the slope. Ample storage can be found inside the element, both underneath the bed and inside the half steps, which double as additional seating. The custom made the table and bench in the same diagonal geometry, fit into one another and allow for easy shifting and reconfiguration. All the carpentry is made from plywood core, finished in the same laminate as if everything was carved from a single piece of wood. #smallapartment #architecture #interiordesign Project Name: Gradient Space Designer: 🤍🤍metre.sg/ Produced by New Mac Video Agency Creator: Colin Chee Director: Nam Tran Camera Operator: Kevin Siyuan Producer: Lindsay Barnard Editor: Colin Chee Music: Lieu Despoir by Roseblue Artlist.io
its not for everyone. relax people
Yikes. Makes the apartment feel so cramped and claustrophobic and confusing.
I love it, it's very original and creative. He created storage out of thin air. If you look at yhqxpvjFXM4&t=2m18s 2:18 , you get a nice view of the what the owner will see. She gets a huge closet on the left, the entry to the bathroom on the left, but he manages to squeeze in the mirror and also conceals the bedroom. She literally can walk into a whole storage "room" under the bed!
I might have chosen a lighter wood though.
It feels sterile and cold despite the use of natural wood. The 'sofa' is one seat only and th espace is crammed. All of thos sharp diagonals are not welcoming or elegant at all. I don't think we are talking about personal preference here. The project looks like it was made from a student and not a professional.
The working 'chair' (just wood no padding) is so uncomortable that the woman works from the ''sofa' in the entire video :D
cheap looking laminated built-ins,
The number of times your knees and ankle will suffer from bumping into those corners or tripping down the bed will be 9000+
this is the smartest thing i've ever seen in a space this small. wow!
Oh I Hate it. It looks so small and unwelcoming now.
This looks like a space you’d see outside. Like steps towards something else. Not a place you’d want to Live.
And blocking off that window was horrible.
douse it in gasoline and burn it down.
It’s great! My shed has been completed and it turned out nice looking and sturdy and it is way better than the sheds that many of my neighbors had put up. Of course, I'm pleased with the outcome and this Ryan’s youtube.com/post/UgkxGZedDTcDfgD7fG_uU4esfx_EgxzlY2_1 youtube.com/post/UgkxGZedDTcDfgD7fG_uU4esfx_EgxzlY2_1 Plans was extremely useful to me as a guide.
too rough. sharp corners everywhere.
It's interesting to watch but this apartment is just stupid
I LOVE only one addition to this space: the GLASS wall/door to contain the kitchen smells.
yhqxpvjFXM4&t=1m10s 1:10 I would have moved the bathroom door around the corner, next to the kitchen cabinets. Then placed the bedhead on that wall and (re)moved the wardrobe. The window would then remain exposed and the room less claustrophobic.
yhqxpvjFXM4&t=2m19s 2:19 I'm not for climbing into bed and the corners of the tall treads already show signs that the laminate is breaking off. Stairs need to be solid wood. Perhaps have them retractable like in other videos on the channel.
I like the angle on the TV wall, but having it open is a wasted opportunity. Keep the angle, but put in more cabinets and/or shelves.
I don't like built in chairs/couches. Not only do all of them on this channel look uncomfortable, but I also want the ability to move them to suit my needs/desires. i.e. Sometimes I want to stare out the window and other times at the boob tube.
I like the color of the new wood but it bothered me that the wardrobe and the lower kitchen cabinets didn't match. Since those are an ugly color, I would have painted them, perhaps glossy white to mimic the upper cabinets.
Looks good but when u wake up at 3am to try and get a midnight snack tho
wish the color of the laminate was the same aa the existing parts or superdark as contrast, could even be black to semi conceal the tv
An inspired design. Excellent use of creating different levels for different zones. Personally all the sharp edges while aesthetically interesting would be a practical health hazard for me, particularly up on waking and heading for my morning coffee! I think I’d make the different levels simpler & wider, using more rounded curves to save my shins. Lol But like I said, beautifully designed.
While the angles do look cool in a visual way, you're pretty boned if you want to display anything that isn't mounted to a wall. With all the emphasis on storage, sabotaging many opportunities for the resident to show their own personality through what they own seems pretty short-sited.
BS, This is not 'home design' this is a bunch of weird furniture installed
This small place even looks smaller. It seems so crowded even without any humans.
