paradigma ariadne introduces bright diagonal wall into budapest apartment

budapest based architecture studio paradigma ariadne transformed a traditional two bedroom apartment into a contemporary and bold joint environment in budapest‘s center. the diagonal apartment’s renovation reimagines both the room open to the street and the room open to the inner courtyard of the building, to combine in a playful new atmosphere.

by introducing an eye-catching and out of scale wall element that traverses through the apartment, the architects were able to create a middle space that links both rooms. they aimed to eliminate the divided areas and make a continuous visual connection between both ends of the apartment. the new space brings an sense of monumentality to an ordinary living space.

the refreshing spatial structure disregards the given order of rooms and walls and gives the overall space a revitalizing splash of color. to further strengthen the concept, the hall’s new walls were converted into diagonals that disguise storage areas, bookshelves and even the room’s doors. the strong yellow and turquoise hues divert the viewers’ eyes to create an elongating effect in the space as well as providing ample new storage space.
