Studio apartment boasts angled oak kitchen and shower unit that maximizes the feeling of space

This stunning studio apartment that is located in the heart of Soho, London, originally had a separate bedroom, but architect John Nordon chose to open it up to maximize the feeling of space. A handmade oak unit has been set into the room at an angle, containing the kitchen units on one side and concealing a shower room on the other. There is a fold-down bed, and a wall of storage with sliding doors. A poured resin floor runs throughout the space. You find the toilet in a small separate room.

The apartment has previously been let out for short stays by the current owner but it is now on the market, so if you got £599,950 (that’s about $790,000), burning a hole in your pocket, you can lease it for approx. 157 years.
