Close to Stuttgart’s center, a converted 1950s laboratory building with a facade designed by Wilford Schupp hides a luxurious suite of spaces named the Quant 1 Apartment. Designed by Ippolito Fleitz Group – with offices in Stuttgart – this glamorous apartment only has one bedroom and one and a half bathrooms, and was based on a concept that would target single women. The colors, textures and style, as well as furniture items and design lines were carefully chosen to not only create a sense of stylish glamor, but also to give the compact spaces a sense of spaciousness “achieved through a strong emphasis on transparency and openness in the design of the individual elements.” A curved staircase in the middle of the apartment creates a bold statement of space, while displaying a beautiful set of lamps.
The upper floor is occupied by the bedroom, bathroom and dressing room, all shaping a modern fairytale-like space: “ Opposite the bed, the bedroom opens down onto the dining area via four synchronized windows, with a curtain for when discretion is required. On the other side of the room, an oval window enclosed within a Chesterfield-upholstered seating niche, which creates a sensuous boudoir effect, provides a visual link to the bathroom. The materiality of the bedroom is characterized by soft fabrics: A thick-pile, velour carpet, white, upholstered leather, a diaphanous yet opulent expanse of curtain, and flower motif wallpaper on the wall behind the bed are offset and complemented by off-white bedroom furniture. The adjoining bathroom is enclosed by porcelain stoneware executed in horizontal stripes, generating a very tactile feel. A mirrored bathroom cupboard of whitewashed oak stretches along the length of the room. With its mirrored doors and multiple illuminated compartments, it exudes a sense of abundance and offers generous storage.” How many of you ladies would love to call this apartment your home?
