Slideshow: Californian architects Garcia Tamjidi have completed a studio apartment in San Francisco that looks more like an art gallery or showroom.
Designed for a couple who race motorcycles in their spare time, the apartment has yet to be furnished and currently features a motorbike as its central showpiece.
Other pieces of art and sculpture are sparingly located around an open-plan living room that is split into two tiers.
A group of closets are clustered at the centre of the space to provide storage for the entire apartment.
We've noticed a trend in minimal white apartments recently. Find all our stories about apartments here to see for yourself.

Here's some more information from the architects:
Private Residence, San Francisco, California
Designed for a couple whose hobby is racing motorcycles and setting world land speed records, this flat becomes a private retreat from an adrenaline charged lifestyle.
Originally a two bedroom, one and a half bath condominium, the floor plan was stripped of all but completely utilitarian necessities.
Organized around a very long double-sided storage wall, retracting fabric scrims are used to create more private areas.
The interior view, a place to relax, meditate and dream, provides a counterpoint to the openness of city and water views.
