There are beautiful apartments all over the globe but today we’re visiting Ukraine where we found this wonderful place. It’s an apartment which was decorated by SVOYA Studio and which is located in Dnepropetrovsk. It’s spacious and very elegant.

The Regency era saw the creation of elegant Regency Terraces throughout the UK. Their commanding presence reinforced their status as homes for the upper classes. Sadly many of these architectural gems are today in an ill state of repair.
One such building, a popular roaring 1920s seafront hotel in the coastal town of Worthing, had been left abandoned and unused for almost a decade. A two-year restoration of the Regency-era Mayfield House into 11 luxury apartments has been completed by building and renovation company The Pure Group.Mayfield House opened it’s show house at the weekend and now you too can open the door to reveal the treasures within.
We’ve told lots of stories where things like water towers, barns or factories became apartments or residence but we never came across an apartment which was once a bank. Today that changes. We found this great place in Helsinki, Finland. The building used to be a bank. It then became an insurance company and later it was transformed into Apartment Bulevardi 1. The project was developed by Saukkonen+Partners.
There are many challenges during the project. The biggest of them all was removing the think steel door to the bank vault. It had to be cut into small pieces. The former vault is now a library.
The apartment measures a total of 2,368 square feet (220 square meters). It only has one bedroom and one bathroom. Following Scandinavian tradition, the architects designed the bathroom with a sauna. In addition to the area already described, the apartment also has a functional kitchen, a large living room also a smoking room with strong ventilation.
In Singapore, there is a gorgeous contemporary apartment called the Geranium Apartment. Dialing in at about 1,000 square feet, the apartment isn’t huge compared to some, but its design makes the space feel and look much larger than that.
The apartment’s main living area is lucky enough to have lots of natural light – floor-to-ceiling windows, in fact. This natural light plays a key role in opening up the entire apartment and providing a spacious feeling throughout.
Proving that a space needn’t have electrical wires or ducts hanging from the ceiling to be an expose on exposed industrial style, a 250 square meter apartment in Kiev (known as the “16th” Apartment) maintains a clean, contemporary style while inserting plenty of personality and a bit of industrial rawness around the edges.
Let’s take a closer look.
Situated on the 5th floor of a building which dates back to 1882, this attic apartment has all the ingredients of a perfect dream home. In total, it measures 87 square meters, 17 of which are occupied by the balcony. Attic apartments don’t usually have spacious balconies and this makes this particular apartment that much more special.
The attic was built in 2008 and the style chosen for the interior is a mix of rustic and modern. Simplicity defines each of the rooms. The living area has a corner fireplace which can’t possibly go unnoticed.
The wooden floor and the antique furniture make this space feel very charming and welcoming. The bedroom is all white and it too has a corner fireplace. The fireplace, like the walls and the furniture, is white and it has bronze accents that somewhat match the floor and bring in a subtle contrast.
The complex mind of a human being can solve almost any problem so, naturally, the lack of space won’t stand in its way. A tiny apartment doesn’t represent a problem if you know how to use the space in your favor. Still don’t know what we’re talking about? Take a look at this place. It’s a small apartment in New York and it has a very interesting interior design.
The apartment was designed by Margarita McGrath and Scott Oliver or Noroof Architects. In total, it occupies 640 square feet of space. It’s a compact space with narrow rooms and not exactly a great layout.
The architects were faced with a big challenge when they had to turn this place into a practical and comfortable home. Remodeling the apartment was not easy but the solutions the archtiects found for all the problems are very inspiring.
