Less is more interior
The aim was to create a spacious and uncluttered interior that reflects the owner’s spirit in a unique, timeless look. The interior is therefore designed with the ‘Less is more’ philosophy. The well-combined materials, patterns and textures create an attractive, mature perception of the home. The general atmosphere of the apartment reflects a modern, sophisticated, calm color, quality space.
Wood and concrete
The color palette consists mainly of monochrome colors. Concrete walls and ceilings form the basis in the interior, which provide an industrial look. Thanks to the addition of various wooden elements, the raw appearance has been offset with more warmth and atmosphere. Think of the beautiful wooden floors and various custom-made wooden cabinets.
The living space consists of a casual lounge area, dining area, open kitchen and two separate patio entrances. And the special thing is that the entire apartment is actually furnished as an open loft. A built-in multi-functional sofa set was custom made by a local furniture company based on his sketches. The double-sided frame offers a pleasant and practical opportunity to enter the kitchen without ever leaving the sofa.
Modern black kitchen
The black kitchen takes full responsibility for making a significant contribution to the color scheme. The black kitchen unit, made of matte black FENIX NTM, provides a perfect accent in the apartment. Furniture facades from the kitchen to the wardrobe illustrate a single line that connects the layout of the apartment.
Standard kitchen cabinets have been deliberately removed from the design composition to emphasize the lightness of the entire furniture set. In fact, all the furniture elements, together with the seven-meter-long, sturdy wardrobe, enliven the principle of airiness as an essential design concept of the original project. The particularly attentive viewer will easily notice that adjoining walls, floor supports and furniture share a common element – a shadow gap, demonstrating a basic minimalist approach and distinguishing the overall shapes.
The master bedroom reveals pure simplicity. The bed frame is primarily designed to provide the owner with an impeccable power nap. 2 x 2 meter mattress base offers unlimited freedom in sleeping positions. A balanced side bed section offers the option of a multi-level seating position. The relatively low bed type structure refers to the modern Asian style influence.
The partially glazed bathroom with solid tiles is the centerpiece of the interior project. It is shown as a self-contained cube floating above the general floor level, separating the main area and the master bedroom. Ceppo di Gre texture tile covering the entire bathroom space including floor, walls and ceiling provides a perfect setting for bathroom accessories in a completely monolithic unit. Cleverly inserted glass breaks down the massive walls and creates a visually open connection while keeping noise to a minimum. Water-resistant fabric curtains can be adjusted with the remote control.
