The apartment is located on the 4th floor of a residential house, which was built in 1905, in the historical area of Kyiv.
The Project
The space itself is luminous: all the windows overlook a quiet green park, and the light freely streams through them. Because of the state of the building, a massive renovation of the flat was required. The process of dismantling revealed the rotten slabs and large cracks in the walls, and that flooring replacement is needed.
We found an authentic alternative, namely an oak parquet, which is about 100 years old
The bedroom can be seen through the double door from the living room
The Walls
The walls were painted on top of plaster, with the deep texture being left as it is. The angle between walls and ceiling was smoothed out — this was a popular solution for the old flats in Kyiv.
Our solution was not to copy the "Parisian chic" tricks
This decorative element was produced by hand from gypsum, according to our 3D model.
The bathroom is separated from the bedroom with a glass partition and a soft tulle
The mirror above the sink was also designed at our studio and produced according to our drawings.
