By the Sea is an interior design project of a 135m2 apartment with a spectacular sea view, located in a luxurious new residential building in Burgas, Bulgaria. The design is inspired by the nearby seascape, captivating the serene feeling of the Black Sea azure shades, the glittering sun reflections, the golden sand dunes, and the blazing sunrises.
The apartment consists of a living room, a master bedroom, a second bedroom, a children room, two bathrooms and a vast terrace. The design approach is contemporary and minimalistic, withstanding the passage of time. All materials and products are selected as an interpretation of the seascape, such as Boen light wood sand-like flooring, the azure blue fabrics, the black glass Brokis pendants –reminiscent of water at night light, the Cotto d’Este ceramic tiles used in the bathrooms, interpreting sea sedimentary rocks, the Marazzi marble accents that create ethereal atmosphere, even the hand-made corten furniture is a reminder of the destructive power of the sea water, causing corrosion.
The poetic outcome hides a complicated smart home system that provides control over appliances, floor heating and ventilation, and the lighting scheme scenarios.
