This project was realized for a young couple with a child who are keen on fashion, music, and contemporary art. The apartment takes a two-level space of 100 sq.m and based in Kyiv, Ukraine.
The lower floor combines the living area with the kitchen and a guest bathroom. Upstairs, the family will enjoy their master bedroom with the wardrobe, a kid`s room, and a bathroom. Such planning solution provides a comfortable division into isolated ‘day’ and ‘night’ zones.
We decided to introduce a combined interior color scheme, so we diluted the neutral colors of the walls, ceiling, and floor with intense colorful accents. We also decided to keep all the concrete elements in the apartment in its original state using the special dustproof solutions for safety and hygiene.
The dining area takes place between the kitchen and the living room as an island with a semi-bar counter expanding into the 4-seat dining table.
The fully-equipped kitchen with the oak wood fronts and the black quartz countertop will bring joy from the cooking experience. For additional storage, we designed the shelving system from HPL-plastic that graphically stand out behind the pink glass backdrop.
The living room embraces with its soft and cozy zone for listening to music and watching movies on the projector.As the apartment owner is passionate about listening to the music and is proud of his 3000 vinyl records collection, we designed a unique rack for his collection.
Grey felt chairs from DeVorm, which are made from recycled PET bottles, have taken their place at the dining table.
The highlight of the music lounge room is an electric piano near the window paired with the artwork by Françoise Oz, an Odessa-based artist.
Hot-rolled metal stairs will lead you to the second floor. Under the stairs, there is a shoe rack and a wardrobe for outerwear.
The first-floor bathroom is deliberately made in bright colors to wow the guests. The main accent here is the unplastered wall from concrete blocks and the self-levelling floor in a warm pink shade. The central element of the bathroom is a spotted acrylic console sink with an asymmetrical polygonal mirror.
One of the principal wishes of the clients was to have a spacious bathroom. As we increased this space, a full-size bath and a shower area were installed. Bath and shower area are designed in custom concrete panels with a gradient effect.
