The interior design of this 34-square-meter apartment in Kyiv is a clever example of how to make the most of a small space. Despite its compact size, the open-plan design allows for several functional zones, including a kitchen, dining room, vanity table, bed with a home theater, a cozy balcony, and a bathroom. The use of built-in storage helps to keep the space efficient and visually clean.
The color scheme throughout the apartment is neutral and calming, with warm wood furnishings contrasting against the decorative concrete floor and white-grey walls. Terrazzo textures and contrasted gray smoothens of floors and textiles create a visually striking juxtaposition. A unique dining table with upholstered bench siting arrangement give a modern urban feel to the open plan living area.
The characteristic console table together with the elegant chairs from Billiani clearly defines the eating nook. We love the bespoke wooden construct that give a functional separation between the eating, working and relaxation zones, separated from the kitchen appliances. A clever and functional solution for small urban apartment.
Although the owners of the apartment consider it a temporary place to live for their daughter as a student, this stylish design showcases how smart housing can be an effective solution for urban living with a focus on travel, mobility and contemporary minimalism.
