This chic and modern apartment is located in Kiev, Ukraine and it has been recently renovated by architect Alex Bykov. The apartment now bursts with playfulness and elegance. Its interior fells very warm and inviting thanks to the materials used for the project.
Besides the chic and stylish side of the apartment, the space is also very functional. It has lots and lots of storage hidden in the most unusual places. For example, there’s an interesting combination between a bookshelf and a staircase which creates a small library with interchangeable shelving. This is an important feature because the owner of the apartment specifically requested a library and the architect found a creative way to include one.
The interior of the apartment is very open which contrast a little with the whole cozy and warm décor. There are only two doors that separate the rooms and each space flows into the next. The bedroom, the lounge area, the library and the bathroom are all surrounding the kitchen and so they all communicate with a central social space. The kitchen is thus the heart of the home.
The rooms form an uninterrupted circle and the transition from one another is very smooth. This is also due to the cohesive palette of colors and materials sued throughout. The exposed brick walls and the timber floors create a very welcoming and pleasant atmosphere while the clean lines and simplicity of the furniture add a nice balance and make the apartment seem very harmonious.
