JAC studios have designed a striking renovation of a 200 m2 apartment in a former factory complex in the neighbourhood of Islandsbrygge in Copenhagen. The apartment is focussed on creating an interior landscape of plateaus and surfaces that offer dual functionality with an attention to detail and material connectivity. Seemingly impossible structures levitate throughout the interior space with a delicacy and lightness in construction. The apartment utilises a rich choice of materials creating a strong contrast and meeting between surfaces that cantilever, intercept and interact with one another.
The design is intended to open up the interior spaces to form a large open plan space that allows for a principal living, kitchen and dining area. Furniture interventions create a zoning of spaces rather than relying on interior walls to divide spaces. Sturlasgade apartment showcases an artistic approach to restoration that still preserves the qualities of the former building, yet through radical bespoke interventions offers a fresh revival of the interior spaces.
