London is an exciting city, an exciting place. Daniel Hopwood loved the land so much that when he was young, he dreamed of living here. 这栋公寓位于战后重建的一座城镇的顶楼，景色十分壮观，包括18世纪的圣马利伯恩教堂。Daniel Hopwood十年前在这条昂贵的街道上买了最便宜的公寓。
Located on the top floor of a town reconstructed after the war, this apartment offers spectacular views, including the 18th-century Saint Mary's Church. Daniel Hopwood bought the cheapest apartment on this expensive street ten years ago. 虽然公寓有很好的景观，拥有完美的视野，但天花板相当紧凑。它必须努力适应Daniel Hopwood的生活方式，并成为一个忙碌生活的避风港。
Although the apartment has a good view and a perfect view, the ceiling is quite compact. It must work hard to adapt to Daniel Hopwood's way of life and become a safe haven for a busy life. Daniel Hopwood想要利用每平方英寸的优势，于是决定看看日本人如何在小空间中生活得很好。通过使用可以打开的滑动门来创建开放式生活，关闭则可以创造一个私密的空间，使每个房间多用途。
Daniel Hopwood wanted to take advantage of the square inches and decided to see how the Japanese lived in small spaces. By using open sliding doors to create an open living, closing can create a private space that multipurpose each room. 在晚上，Daniel Hopwood大部分时间都喜欢拥有黑暗温暖的气氛，这是一种现代绅士的俱乐部风格。通过使用以灰色偏移染色的橡木来实现这一点，其中有光泽或白色的表面将光线直接拉到公寓的中心，使得空间不显得阴沉。
In the evenings, Daniel Hopwood enjoys dark, warm atmosphere most of the time, a modern gentleman's club style. This is accomplished by using oak stained with a gray offset, where a glossy or white surface pulls the light directly into the center of the apartment so that the space does not look gloomy. Daniel Hopwood花了一段时间才能实现他的梦想，生活在美丽伦敦的这样一个可爱的公寓里，但Daniel Hopwood希望这是研究如何愉快地在紧凑的城市生活的一个有用的案例。
It took Daniel Hopwood some time to fulfill his dream of living in such a lovely apartment in beautiful London but Daniel Hopwood hoped it would be a useful case to study how to happily live in a compact city. Daniel Hopwood知道客户在设计过程中必须经历什么，关心获得正确的设计，因为在室内设计方面的错误代价可能是昂贵的。一个成功的项目是客户和设计师之间共同合作的结果。一个好的设计师将帮助客户发现自己的风格感，而不是强加自己的想法，需花时间聆听，以了解客户的生活方式和实际需求。
Daniel Hopwood knows what customers have to go through in the design process and is concerned with getting the right design because the mistakes in interior design can be costly. A successful project is the result of co-operation between the client and the designer. A good designer will help clients discover a sense of style, rather than imposing their own ideas and taking the time to listen to their clients' lifestyle and real needs.
