This is the apartment for a young man, located in an old house built in 1874, in the historic district of Kyiv. The owner leads an active social life, admires the ideas of Bauhaus school, connects with artists and painters. We wanted to make an unique apartment, with its individual features and character. It was to reflect the preferences and ideas of the owner's way of life.
This project is based on a combination of pure linear solutions and contrasts of shapes and textures. Much attention is paid to the choice of materials and textures - smooth, shiny surfaces of stone and glass balanced by warm surfaces of wood and brick.
It was very important for us to create beautiful technical units in the interior - the moments of connection of surfaces, the transition from one material to another, the connection of volumes to the wall / floor / ceiling.
We wanted to show the historical context in the decoration, so we left some of the enclosing structures open, showing the historical brickwork.
In the implementation, we actively cooperated with local manufacturers, interior and lighting items are mostly Scandinavian brands such as Hay, Muuto, & Traditions, Linie Design and more.
