We continue to review the amazing architectural and design objects found all over the world. This time we will get acquainted with the great master Eric Carlson, who developed the project with a luxurious design. It combines classic and modern features. It was completed in 2012 in Riga, the capital of Latvia.
The studio apartment is located in a building built in the 19th century, which has not lost its historical image. There are woven into amazing assorted retro flashes and elements of modern prosperous life. In this small space, one of the important aspects is a sustainable sense of spaciousness, which is so optimally optimized with the maximum capacity and room capacity.
In the living room we see wooden floors and classical furniture, as well as a luxurious chandelier in the Gothic style. The contrast here is everywhere actively underlined: a number of photos aligned on the wall with sports retro cars and a bright carpet on the floor, a spot of a "tanned" leather chair and a fashionable gray sofa.
Kitchen facades seem to have some kind of futuristic nature. They are mostly in gray tones, sometimes covered with silver, with splashes of red here and there (kitchen faucet, cabinet, kettle, dishes). A semi-circular chandelier above the table resembles a UFO that regulates its landing. The combination of gray, silver and red tones defines a very artistic approach in kitchen design. Although it seems minimalistic, such shades visually stimulate.
The design of the bathroom continues in the same color scheme. The walls, covered with light gray tiles, contrast with the dark gray on the floor. An unusual element seems to be a completely transparent shower, like a glass cube inscribed in the interior of the bathroom. This cold "grayness" is brightly colored with red shelves, towels, and a strip of abstract colored mosaics.
To preserve the classic features, a curbstone under the sink and coasters above it were created from a delightful dark tree.
The amazing design taste allowed to keep in this apartment as a dedication to historical values, such as the Gothic and retro style of the 60's, and to pay tribute to the future, using modern materials and elements of high-tech culture. Is not it a refined combination? Write your opinion in the comments!
