Although the choice for the name might not make much sense at first, the Invader Apartment has an interior theme inspired by the Space Invaders arcade video game developed by Tomohiro Nishikado in 1978.
The project spreads over a surface of 32 square meters and was designed by the OneByNine studio in Hong Kong. The original apartment had several rooms and this made the space seem even more enclosed so the designers removed the partitions to create a continuous space that allowed easy flow with two main program spaces.
The living space is connected directly to the bedroom and bathroom while the kitchen extends into a terrace area. The bathroom space was enlarged due to the fact that the kitchen shared space with the circulation corridor and the bathroom now contained a European size shower room, a toilet and a sink.
Through the reduction of the bedroom space the living space became more open and offered a program where dining, reading or watching TV while also offering a view of the city skyline and the New Kowloon Cultural District Development.
