Noir et Blanc - Slow Living Student Apartment by Co+in Collaborative Lab

Minimalist Black and White student apartments that celebrates the joy of living. The balance of lifestyle between work, study, or simply enjoying a cup of coffee despite the limited space.

Black room that speaks moody , White room that envelopes stillness.

Located nearby universities within Jakarta, Indonesia, the apartment targeted students within the area with the concept of the student center, with facilities that focus on student necessity.

The initial design brief is to present Australian vibes with a cold design for the 1+1 Bedroom, and warm for the studio unit. The occupant of the units are students who need a place to easily commuting between the premise and the campus.

Black and white is considered as the mood of the design while adopting the client's love of marble as the main feature of the design.

In the case of the studio unit, we embrace the black tone material that envelopes the space with a mixture of concrete on walls, which bring the warm and homey ambiance, while at the same time edgy and modern. The cabinetry is combined to maximize the limited space while bringing out unity. The day bed located by the window, function as additional storage, social space for gatherings, or simply to relax and enjoy the view of surroundings.

On the flip side, the 1+1 unit provides a cold yet comfortable design. The curved ceiling presents the resemblance of a subway train, picturing different place that is not Jakarta. The dominant white, marble, and white texture, helps to highlight the tidiness of the space, while grey tone helps to tone down the coldness of the space. While having the space saturated, mint color for the and terrazzo for the kitchen become the focal point in the space. Bar table used for dining and study purposes instead of a dining table, which offers more flexibility of the occupant routine.
