The space that we picked up for the story, has a unique layout and exceptional exclusivity. It is located on 56 sq. Km. m. in the metropolitan housing complex "House on the Coastal."
Unusual housing is based on the fact that a studio studio apartment has only two window apertures, while the passage to them was hampered by the construction of internal partitions in the room. The design and implementation of the design concept involved talented specialists Katya Mamaeva and Ekaterina Svanidze, their creative union conducts a joint management of the architectural workshop "DvoKati".
How did they manage to cope with the unusual layout of the house, divide it so as to fill the space with the maximum amount of sunshine? And besides that, understand and achieve the full realization of the client's requirements, which is a true admirer of Art Nouveau stylistics. In addition, the financial side of the project was narrowed down. And everyone knows that this direction does not accept economy, it requires wealth and chic.
Graduates of the Modern School of Design of MGUKI, they are also owners of an art workshop with an interesting name "DvoKati". For more than five years, they have been working in the development and design of individual and public interiors: "We help organize a personal corner, comfortable for living and working, based on the individual requirements of the customer, directing and advising. The result of such a creative union was the realized idea of a unique design - modern and practical. "
Client and wishes
The owner of the dwelling is a young and energetic person, the coordinator of presentations at the largest marketing corporation. Before the masters, she set such a goal - to develop a studio room with a personal wardrobe, and also with the possibility to separate the sleeping space.
As a result of the unconventionality of the apartment, six different decorations were designed by specialists, from which a rational design for the girl was subsequently selected.
Housing initially looked like an empty 56-meter area with a ventilation system in the center and a voluminous supporting wall between the window blocks. A spacious area for a one-room apartment had a noticeable minus - just two windows on one wall. And when you build a wall between them, most of the room would be left without the sunshine!
A bedroom and a salon, which can be transformed into a guest lounge if necessary, share fences using opaque glass panels, through which the sun's light passes admirably. In this case, the sleeping bed is not completely isolated, since there is an individual passage to the main room, and, consequently, a more comfortable route to the bathroom. As a result, the main desire of the customer is provided - the studio apartment. The wardrobe is located in a separate rounded room, this was done because the woman wanted to get rid of the corners.
The supporting wall between the window blocks, which could not be removed or demolished, was increased - resulting in a large kitchen cabinet. It housed a bar, cutlery and a few ducks. He also shares the kitchen area and hall.
Low ceilings had to be lowered slightly for laying the communication postings of the fire safety system, since this was the main requirement of the housing company of construction. In the spacious bathroom area, designers could place not only a bath, but a shower cubicle, but the girl wanted only the second option.
Stylistics of design
