Project • By KODD BUREAUApartments


The location and the resulting image of the project at the initial stage set the basis for the idea. All elements of the interior are brought into the exact balance of volumes and colors, textures and materials, as well as in the fullness of decor items.

Hotel Moskva

Back in 1905, the story begins with the creation of a landmark. To the north, the majestic Danube crosses and to the west, the tributary Sava, in one of the most beautiful and central spots of Belgrade. This building constitutes a classic hotel, a "jewel" for the city. On the vertical axis, sharp lines emphasize its strict character, while on the horizontal axis, the curvature tends to smooth out this notion. The unobstructed panoramic view concerned a focus point of the architectural approach and a vital component of the building. A minimal design approach which preserves the traditional style dominates the configuration of the windows and the bay-windows which surround the building. Earthy colors allow a smooth integration into the surrou... More

The Mermaid's

In the beginning, the owner of this apartment, an elegant and beautiful lady, told me: “I’d like to live in a place, where its ambiance is ambiguous, less like a home, more like a sanctuary in dream, where I could feel isolated and indulged with my on-going collections in this timeless, sacred space.”During the design, when I was not sure of what to do, a new collection, a little mermaids, came along. Her serene quality caught me and my mind started to evolve around her.  She became the focal point and anchor of the space, the tone of the ambiance, and the source of the semi-monochrome palette. In the end, the entire space is the extend-dimension of this fantastical creature. She is the soul of this space; the soul...

Secret House

For Secret House we were both developer and architect for two new houses on Chapel Market in Islington.The site is surrounded on all sides by a high wall, and turns in on itself to form a retreat from the lively bustle of the market outside. All that is visible to the visitor is a narrow timber wall and two doors at the end of a long alleyway.As you enter the house the spaces gradually unfold, first into an open living area, lit by slots of light cut up into the roof. These spaces are finished in natural materials- limestone and walnut- that are inviting to the touch and the barefoot resident. As you step out into the courtyard, bare brick walls and raw timber reflect the industrial history of the site. More

courtyard house

Two new build one-bed houses were constructed in place of an old silversmith’s workshop behind a row of Georgian houses in Angel, London. The workshop was demolished, the site excavated and the existing brick boundary walls underpinned to allow the construction of two jewel like courtyard houses.Approached through the Georgian terrace, the building appears as a beautifully crafted jewel hidden within its juxtaposed rough old boundary wall and concrete foundations. Entering into the house the top lit double height space creates drama. The light filled stair with cedar clad walls leads you to the sleeping quarters with private terrace. The open plan living dining kitchen space is lit and ventilated by a sunken courtyard, visually connecting t... More
