From an apartment with industrial design to a wooden one

I would probably upset the next apartment’s designer if I would say it looks like a place from horror movies, but this is the first impression that the next pictures gave to me. And that is not even an offense because I really like the place, only that it gives me the chills. It is a cold, metallic place, with an industrial aspect. It reminds me of a warehouse, factory or hospital. But let’s see the pictures and you will decide for your own how creepy this place really is.

The apartment suffered two transformations. The first set of pictures shows you the first transformation. In 2005, the Russian architect Peter Kostelov transformed a single room apartment into a multiple room one, including a living room, a bedroom, study room, library, two wardrobe rooms, a kitchen, a bathroom and a lavatory and shower for guests. Now this is a great job and a very intelligent way of splitting space! The designer used almost only industrial, or to be more exact, metal materials. This is why the apartment had a cold masculine look, not very welcoming, and, as I already said, a little creepy for my taste.

Seven years later the same apartment has gotten a softer look.

The designer probably felt the same as he tried a redecoration of the apartment. The last set of pictures let you see the final transformation. By changing the metal materials with timber walls the designer gave to the apartment a more relaxed look. Now the place is brighter, warmer and invites yiu to stay in.
