Modern Apartment With Industrial Features And Relaxing Ambience

Fri, Nov 20, 2015 | Modern home designs

The remodel of an apartment in Kiev, Ukraine, was done by SVOYA Studio and the focus was on creating a vast open floor plan and a quiet and peaceful ambiance. The overall design is a combination of modern and industrial features with a slight hint of rustic. The wood boards and ceramic tiles used for the flooring are locally-sourced, the studio also included a series of their own creations, which includes light fixtures and other accessories. The apartment was decorated with paintings by local artists which further supports the concept described so far. The team employed a series of rather unusual strategies such as including an indoor hammock in the living space and using pendant lamps as decorations. Other interesting accent features include a custom wine rack tucked in a nook between the kitchen and dining area.

The variations are infinite, each prettier and more fluid than the next. I guess that’s one of the many things that attract me towards the Mizu table!


Tiny Studio Organized With A Smart Storage Wall

Thu, Nov 19, 2015 | Small home designs

Following a renovation by New York’s Framework Architecture, a wall running the length of a small studio provides generous storage and display. The slatted wood wall runs the entire length of the 450-square-foot studio, beginning in the entryway, where it displays two African paintings and a sculpture. Further along, the wall opens to accommodate a refrigerator and clothes storage. At the opposite end of the studio, Framework Architecture created a partially enclosed sleeping nook that is spacious enough to fit a full-size bed. Conceived as an extension of the wall, the bedroom juxtaposes the client with his possessions, souvenirs, and artwork at the start and end of each day. Though the renovation mostly steered clear of the kitchen, the new program impacts the entire apartment by improving organization and circulation.

Divсibare House Consisting Of Two Different Volumes

Fri, Nov 13, 2015 | Modern home designs

The house is located near the popular tourist resort in Serbia. To minimize disturbance to the site and as a reference to the surrounding hilly terrain, the house is built into the hillside. The outside is designed by combining and connecting the two main monolithic volumes, light & dark. These forms merge with the natural environment of low pine vegetation and steep rocky terrain. The inner décor is simple and modern, and the traditional and the contemporary were merged to create a unique aesthetic and a structure sympathetic to its surroundings. I love ethnic touches added to the interior, they give it a character.
