An apartment to house art

Blockstudio Interior Designers として

The Blockstudio architects have designed this flat with a lot of sunlight for a young family who collect art.

“Layout design is the most exciting part of our work and adds the most value”, says Natalia, a Blockstudio partner. “Apart from a column, incongruously situated right in the middle of the space, the flat was a bare shell. To mask the column, we hid it in the portal leading from an entrance hall to a kitchen-dining-living area and made room for a study, children’s room and a bedroom. Applying our favourite method of a circular plan, we have designed a flat where one can go around the rooms virtually in a circle.”

The layout envisaged a large common area encompassing a kitchen, dining and living area. We decided to lower the ceiling in the kitchen and living area, while leaving the original height besides the panoramic windows to fit in a dining table and a sofa and armchair set. The resulting kitchen area does not look quite like a kitchen and features two modules (high and low) and a bar counter that fully covers all worktops.

“Wood features prominently in the project design,” says Ivan, the other Blockstudio partner. “Our aim was to give an impression of a flat with few walls and we came up with a solution to mask the walls as partitions. We opted for iroko wood for wall panelling and the parquet. As to other materials, we used marble cut into tiles preserving an interesting pattern.

The flat is a place where its owners meet artists and curators and thus it requires areas to house paintings and sculptures. The architects have designed a solution on the lines of a museum storage – a sliding structure built into a wall serves as a partition for the living area and is retractable to display works of art.
