We aimed to create an urban residential interior sustained in uniform key for pedantic family who knows value of time. Here the word “pedantic” has a positive meaning.
This human quality or rather personal characteristic implies accuracy, attention, including to details, which create overall climate, and drawing up tasks clearly.
There was a task to create an apartment whose restrained space would contrast with the more relaxed atmosphere of a country house, where the family spends most of their time. The functional task was to locate bedroom and two children’s rooms of approximately the same area separately, and a comfortable dining kitchen with a dining table for four. The design assignment also included hosting a variety of storage systems so that each thing would find its place.
When developing the project, it was important for us to bring lightness and fill the interior with natural light, to make large storage systems invisible, to "dissolve" them in the space of the apartment.
The main palette is almost one-color with white, grey and concrete surfaces which are saturated with the heat of natural wood and muted tones in textiles.
The compositional core of the apartment is the graphic "cube," which hides a dressing room and appliances of living room. High, floor-to-ceiling doors, recessed to the plane of walls, create a rhythm of the hall surfaces and connect spaces of rooms when opened.
