The renovation of the residential apartment for a family of two has started from the total trust between the clients and the architect. Situated on the twentieth floor of the residential building in Kyiv, the apartment's location provides an astonishing view over the Dnieper River. Thus, the project was entitled Parus, meaning 'the sail' in Ukrainian.
The centerpiece of the apartment is a window steel – a 6 meters glazing system with a sliding opening that allows the habitats to admire the view on banks of the Dnieper river. To underline the apartment's location, the architect tried to maximize the solar openings. Considering the elongated layout of the apartment the architect had to remember that from all points of the back room and the corridor, the client should see the main picture of the apartment – the landscape outside the window. Thus, the dull corridor was turned into a functional "island" with a 5-meter two- way cabinet that could get around on both sides. The cabinet took over almost all the storage in an apartment.
