Luis Portero of studioLARQ has designed the interiors of an apartment that involved creating a wall of black-framed folding doors that separate the kitchen from the living room.

The folding doors sit below a row of windows, and when open or closed, the doors allow the natural light from the windows in the exterior wall to travel throughout the interior. The black frames also create a bold contrast to the surrounding area.

The black framed wall also complements the black stools of the kitchen island, while the kitchen cabinets have a minimalist design.

The adjacent living room showcases the concrete flooring and is furnished with leather couches, a pair of armchairs, and a wood coffee table. There’s a low console and glass front cabinet on the living room wall that complements the black-framed doors.

Behind the living room is the dining area. A full wall of custom cabinetry and open shelving, with a ladder, acts as a library, while a round dining table sits beneath a single minimalist pendant light.
