Welcome to our gallery featuring the Olfactory Scent Of A Garden Apartment Project By Brain Factory.
Here you will find an apartment with themes and materials that are consistently designed to engage the senses.
This special apartment focuses on your sense of smell immediately, as you walk into the space and are met by grass growing around a pillar and aromatic scents coming from plants in the kitchen.
The idea is that you feel immersed in a wintery garden. The stark white walls and furniture allow for crisp, and clean lines that represent the frigidness of winter.
The consistent hardwood floor resembles the brown dirt of a garden, and contrasts the white walls well. In combination with the walls and the floor, various plants are growing around the apartment to add to the wintery garden theme.
In the living space, shelving units and cabinets are set into the wall, both providing storage space, as well as conserving space in the living area by being flush with the surrounding walls.
The kitchen features another sensory indulgent feature, a fresh herb garden located directly beneath the window. White rafters running parallel to each other across the kitchen ceiling give the kitchen a special touch different from the rest of the apartment.
These wooden beams running across the kitchen ceiling are backlit by bright LED lighting, which contributes to the winter garden theme. Vinyl prints are stuck onto the kitchen walls with adhesive to resemble birds frolicking in an outdoor garden.
Even the bathroom area incorporates this garden theme, with sections of artificial grass to help control water spillage. Assorted plants are used in both the master and guest bathroom to keep the rooms looking and smelling fresh.
Take a minute to check out the apartment for yourself, and notice how the themes stay consistent throughout the house. Get some inspiration on how to use small details to contribute to a larger general theme!
Upon entering this apartment, you are greeted with a large pillar, featuring a ring of grass growing around it and controlled lighting. The immediate contrast of color you see between the floor and the walls is a continuous theme throughout the home.
A minimalist style kitchen, this space uses a dark stained wood floor and brown walls to create a very natural, garden-like feel. This combined with the white cabinets and dining table, as well as the grass growing by the windowsill, creates a true outdoor gardening theme.
Sleek exposed beams along the ceiling add a nice textural contrast to the sleek surfaces of the cabinetry and countertops.
Leaving the kitchen and stepping out across the living area, you will see that there are many open spaces and clean lines. Again, the prevalent contrast of colors throughout the apartment creates a strong defined theme.
From a different angle in the living room, you can see a stylish coffee table, and beyond is the kitchen opening. Although this is a small apartment, the space is maximized by eliminating unnecessary furniture like chairs or side tables.
Looking at the space from a similar angle, you will notice now that the kitchen divider is shut. The luminescent door is a feature that allows natural light to leak in, while still closing off the room.
Moving to the back of the living room, you notice the large glass table, which can serve as a great dining table, as well as a hub for social gatherings. The shelving unit across the room has a unique and interesting design that catches your eye.
On the right side of the living room near the corner, a door that almost blends in with the walls opens up to reveal the bathroom. The stained wood floor stays constant throughout the house, and you can see that the bathroom even features its own plant-life.
A clever idea for the bathtub, an artificial grass like section is featured where you would step out of the shower, to catch some of the water and ensure that the hardwood floor is not damaged. A large sink is featured below the mirror, and a bidet stands at right.
This master bathroom features boldly unique vanity setup. Over the same hardwood flooring seen in the rest of the house, a curved ceramic console sink stands below a frameless mirror. A delicate chandelier hangs from the ceiling and provides some flair for the space.
