The client owned a 378-square-foot flat in downtown Geneva, Switzerland, that she wanted to refurbish anew. The commission to Freaks was to manage the largest living space possible within a pretty tricky and constraining existing setting.
The concept is very clear and simple: by defining two equal stripes along the flat's length, one half is devoted to living space, while the other half gathers all service functions (bed/kitchen/toilets/bathroom/closet) in a row.
All walls, the ceiling, and doors have been painted white, while the existing wooden floor received a dark blue resin.
The separating partition between the bedroom and the kitchen, as well as towards the bathroom, is made in transparent glass to catch a maximum amount of natural light.
All woodwork has been realized in white face filmed plywood. The sconces are designed by Charlotte Perriand and the ceiling light is a masterpiece designed especially for the project by Dutch architect and designer Mathijs Cremers.
