In the architecture of the building, geometry and linearity can be clearly traced, so it was important that these qualities could also be traced inside. Simple shapes, straight lines are tied together with a certain logic. The seams of the tiles match the window jambs, linear diffusers – with the dimensions of the track lights, each piece has its own binding. in building The natural light is the priority of interior space making, the number of walls in the house is minimized, 70% of the living area is occupied by panoramic glazing.

The interior space design is based on the principle of decorating vertical planes, each plane in the room has a different finish. This creates the space complexity, makes it visually three-dimensional. The interior becomes interesting, wide, one is inclined to examine it.

There is plenty of natural light in the living room, thanks to the double-height space with a ceiling height of 5.5m.

Minimalism prevails in the style of the premises, but at the same time the interior is not devoid of decorativeness: stone panels made of exclusive grades of quartzite and marble in the living room and the master's bedroom make the bright accents. The dining room is decorated with a unique bas-relief work of Ukrainian masters, made in the author's technique.

3L Residences

Reynaers Aluminium as Manufacturers

According to architects Sofiia Zhurko and Olena Oliinyk, the 3L Residences project embraced the idea of creating an "apartment on the ground", i.e. a one-story house, without unnecessary stairs and passages, in which one feels free to move on one level and where the interior space smoothly flows into the exterior one. The optimal size of the house and the land plot on which it is built (300 square meters and 11 acres, respectively) are subject to the principle of modernism “less means more”, which today is gaining relevance again. “The house was designed especially for a family with 2-3 children. While designing the number of bedrooms, common areas, bathrooms, utility premises, we arrived at a conclusion that the optimal surface area of the house for this purpose is 300 square meters. m.”, - said the project designers. So, each 3L Residences house, in addition to a spacious living room and a kitchen with a dining area, has four bedrooms, each with its own bathroom and dressing room, as well as a spacious study, a laundry and a staff apartment with a separate entrance.

 

According to director Maksym Pozdniakov, Vitoris company had two dimensions of work to accomplish the task of glazing with concealed installation items. The first is the technical one, namely: minimizing the visibility of the frames so that the structure remains serviceable. It was necessary to harmoniously integrate the sliding structures and design a quality drainage system, while maintaining a concise design. The second dimension is visual: the color of the visible part of the frames had to be organically combined with the design, the exterior and the color range of the house, while the lines of its systems and double-glazed windows were to become a logical continuation of the overall concept and individual items of the project. Reynaers Aluminium systems are a reliable choice when designing and implementing complex tasks. In the 3L Residences project, a MasterLine 8 HI window and door system with an external batten arrangement was installed, which solved the drainage system problem. In turn, the use of the CP 155-LS Monorails sliding system made it possible to install a structure with a large glazing line permitting to easily handle the structure weight.

 

In addition to the desired visual effect, the use of Reynaers Aluminium systems in the project helped increase the overall level of environmental friendliness of the building, which is especially important in an era of circularity and sustainable development. First, aluminum can be completely, 100% recycled, and, at the same time, unlike other materials, it does not lose its qualities. On the other hand, aluminum is extremely strong, not exposed to UV rays, moisture, corrosion, and rot. For these reasons, the life cycle of aluminum windows and doors averages over 40 years. Therefore, the integration of Reynaers Aluminium products into the project contributes to the overall level of sustainable development of the building and helps obtain relevant building certificates such as BREEAM and LEED. In particular, certification according to criteria such as visual comfort, indoor air quality, thermal comfort, acoustic parameters, reduced energy consumption and carbon emissions, low-carbon design, etc., encourages to choose Reynaers Aluminium systems when it comes to environmental friendliness and the health of the house residences as is the case of the 3L Residences project.

The interior design provides for the distinction between the various rooms through the decoration of vertical walls with different finishes: quartzite and marble panels stand out in the living room and in the master bedroom, a bas-relief in a natural tone characterizes the kitchen area, a unique work of Ukrainians master craftsmen.

A real design jewel is the master bedroom with walk-in closet, illuminated by the large windows to the south and east. The elegance of the Light Gold finish of the CEA taps and accessories gives value to bathroom environments.
