It is said that “when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.” I’m mostly sure that London is one of the most amazing places on Earth. Exploring a city so complex, so filled with culture and life is an uplifting experience! There are few those who express a great disappointment when facing a city that has everything a great city can offer. In a way, London is the type of city that (metaphorically speaking) encompasses the world. As expected, the big city life can be tiring and marvellous, in the same time. Living in London doesn’t necessarily mean owning a mansion, but a compact, cozy home, that reflects the nature of your personality.

Take this apartment, for example: the Central London Flat, as it was named, is a minimalist home designed by VW+BS. The project was completed this year: “the brief to us was to create as flexible a space as possible that could accommodate a variety of functions, and be simple in design.”  The living room and the kitchen are one. Enhancing the idea of space and eliminating boundaries of any kind, the apartment opens up towards the street, through its lovely terrace adorned with  iron railings. The interior features simple finishes, such as oak floors, white painted plaster walls and neutral-coloured furniture.
