The team at SATORI & SCOUT are often scouters (and recipients) of unusual homes and designs, and upon discovering any such media, our team always discuss together their design validity, inspiration, general awesomeness etc; never have we ever seen a home so small, so industrial, so unique.
Titled (simply) the Zero Room apartment, this home is just 35 square metres in dimensions, is located in Budapest (Hungary), and is sure to receive many website visitor views as our readers try to work out what exactly is going on. Maximised to the maximum, industrialised beyond comfort, this home has been completely renovated in terms of being open plan, but also stripped down to its bare minimums. Without any subsidiary rooms, the apartment’s main space houses all of the kitchen, dining area, living area and bedroom, combined to create a holistic decor and atmosphere. Designed by MÁS, this home is certainly curious.
Without anything over superfluous, the futuristic home features greenery and living plants to create a juxtaposition against the harsh industrial decor colours and materiality. Towards a simpler life, this home also has most of it’s functional spaces and furniture options hidden away behind concealed entrances, whereby most notably, the kitchen surfaces and bedroom’s bed swing down to become visible. Perhaps clever design, but SATORI & SCOUT can see the somewhat inconvenience of the idea over time.
With the industrial aesthetic achieved by featuring aged metal which has been purposefully further aged for effect – our team aren’t quite sure on the health implications of this, so are perhaps reluctant to recommend anything related – the result is rather unique. Whilst the surfaces are most cold in appearance and feel, it is the aforementioned greenery, in addition to the soft furnishings, books and bed that provide an interesting contrast. How would you feel coming home to this after a hard day at work, wishing to relax the night away? It could be cool, or rather, plain odd. Thoughts?

Interiors Inspired By Industrial DecorThe industrial decor look has certainly risen in popularity in recent years, and isn't it funny, rewind thirty years ago and no home would ever even consider featuring aluminium panels as wall cover. Fashions are interesting.
