Tepla Apartment

Sergey Makhno Architects as Architects

Tepla Apartment is a light two-storey apartment for a couple that adores modern art and appreciates minimalist solutions.

Living room
Simple lines, soft shapes, warm colors — and nothing extra. The key emphasis here is on a large brown sofa on the podium that extends all the way to the kitchen — that's how we hid the radiators from the developer without dismantling and re-equipping the system. The composition of the space is complemented by a duo of Moooi tables of a wet clay colour. Built-in shelves hold small representatives of Kaws and Dido — favourite collectible art toys.

Kitchen

The black and white kitchen has become a background for textured design details. Almost all the dishes are handmade in the Serhii Makhno's ceramic workshop. Makivka lamps in the white glaze on the outside and hot gold on the inside hover above the bar. In 2019, this model of design lamps by Makhno was presented at the first independent Ukrainian stand of the international design exhibition iSaloni in Milan, Italy.

Guest bedroom

On the first floor, there is an area for guests who decided to stay here a little longer. The guest bedroom has a private bathroom hidden in a glass box. Warm shades visually enlarge the space and make guests feel at home.

Stairs

The stairs leading to the second floor of Tepla are made of triplex glass — they are so transparent that very few will dare to take a step. The construct development took a lot of time, but to realize the wanted design, we will do everything.

The master bedroom 

There is no door in the master bedroom, but there is Flos designer lighting, Kelsis concrete plasters, and a wall covered with Tetrapods by Makhno. But again — no door. To achieve the levitation effect for the Tetrapod ceramic tile panel, we designed several layers of plywood and illuminated the wall with special track lighting, similar to a gallery one.

Master bathroom 

The bathroom has lots of air, light, and warm details. All plumbing came from the Italian brand Cristina. And the pale pink Pivot lamps by Makhno were made in this color exclusively for the Tepla apartment.
