featured on Lunchbox Architect.

Apartments are homes in the sky. Perfect for dense inner-city living, well-designed apartment buildings can create intensity and activity in cities and provide desirable living conditions for residents. Some apartment buildings provide in-building services such as gyms, tennis courts and swimming pools. Lunchbox Architect doesn’t feature apartment building projects, but we proudly feature inspiring examples of architecturally designed apartment interiors.

Here are some of the beautifully designed apartments we’ve featured on Lunchbox Architect:
