3XEL Architekci has designed an apartment for a young couple in Lodz, Poland, that measures in at 559 square feet (52sqm), and makes use of a mezzanine to increase the living space.

 

Stepping inside the apartment, there’s a small entryway with large-scale black tiles that wrap from the floor onto the wall of an alcove underneath the stairs. This alcove provides a place to hang coats and take off shoes, and adjacent to the alcove and underneath the stairs are closets for extra storage.

Opposite the entryway alcove is the bathroom, that uses the same large black floor tiles. The bathroom features a show/bath combo, white subway tiles with dark grout, a hanging round mirror, and a custom vanity whose stand is made from the base of an old sewing machine. Hidden within a wood closet is a washing machine and dryer.

At the top of the stairs is the living room and home office. A simple black entertainment stand complements the black balustrade, while the open wood shelving makes use of a small alcove.
