The 52 sq. m apartment for a young family. Minimalism, honesty, and quality are the principles we used to create the interior. We have decided that we do not want to waste our customers’ time and money on excess decoration – it is better to focus on natural materials and the highest quality filling. That is why we did almost no plastering, did not install the dry walls – just dismantled everything, put out plumbing and electricity, and painted the walls and ceilings, directly on ceramic blocks and concrete.  

The living room and bedroom were separated by a translucent glass wall. The floor in the residential part – natural ash, in the non-residential – painted screed. In terms of furniture, it is mostly Ikea and Ukrainian manufacturers. Particular attention, in our opinion, deserves almost three meters long kitchen table, made of five millimeters aviation aluminum, painted in the color of the floor and the kitchen furniture.
