2 8 Blum Inspirations Living office Regular home of fice workers need space for ideas and a rest ful environment for their eyes. That ’s why Johan Tran’s flat in an old building in Oslo is a per fect marriage of Scandinavian and Japanese designs. The architect from the capital of Nor way has opted for light coloured wood and uses ceiling-high sliding doors to divide the floor plan into zones. Kitchen, working and living areas flow into one another – Johan can withdraw to the study or shut out the kitchen chaos for the evening while he relaxes. The refurbished 545 sq. f t. (51 sq. metre) flat meets all the requirements of its style conscious inhabitants. A power place – sensual and simultaneously sober.
