The customer dreamed of a modern, functional living space. Comfortable and with bright accents but at the same time not dry and strict. Standard techniques did not work here because of the complex geometry, although the total area of space is quite large - 207 square meters. That's why each solution was developed individually.
Radial minimalism
Radial walls - the feature of this apartment in a new residential complex in the center of Kyiv. Custom layout of the space created certain difficulties. But at the same time it caused us professional excitement.
The layout of the apartment is part of a circle divided into sections.
We combined several sections into a living-dining room-kitchen-hallway. In the next room there is a bedroom, in which there are two entrances: from the main corridor and the dining area. Another section was used for the dressing room with a make-up area by the window, two terracotta wardrobes, an island chest of drawers and a case made according to our sketches. Part of the walls were replaced with glass partitions with integrated doors to increase the illumination of dark areas. That's gives an opportunity for daylight to reach the most remote corners of the apartment. The master's bathroom also was placed behind such a partition.
The decoration concept is to preserve the exposed concrete of columns and ceiling, which we covered with translucent varnish. With them visually corresponds microcement floor. We wanted to avoid boiling white colour. Therefore, the walls have a warm beige hue. Terracotta kitchen, sky blue dining table and green bedside table set color accents in space. The space turned out to be quite cozy, despite the strict forms and a minimum of furnishings.
