The landlord is a bachelor, engaged in photography and has long dreamed of one mid century modern furniture. He wanted to build a functional space not only for life but also for meetings with friends and family.
"It was important to preserve the design of the studio and properly zoned space to place in the room, not just the kitchen and living room and dining area," says the designer. – The customer also requested to increase the size of the balcony to use it for storage of photographic equipment ”.
Originally, the apartment was open plan. And although Constantin invited the owner to create a separate bedroom with a 2 square meter area, the concept of Studio apartments liked the customer much more internal partitions to build was not necessary.
The only changes were for the balcony just like the owner, the area increased twice (from 2.2 per square meter up to 4.4) and a balcony with mantle insulation – so there is an extra storage area.
Creates a sense of the integrity of space
The entire floor of the apartment except the hall and bathroom and parquet boards in dark wood. A single coating that brings together all areas and creates a sense of the integrity of space. In the corridor used, the plate 60 × 60 format is a practical solution.
The walls of the apartment painted, and the effect of wear and tear in the corridor and living room made in the paint "Metal harmony". In part, the walls of the apartment are lined with sheets of veneer particle board – a subtle shade of dark wood immediately gives the room a solid look.
“The kitchen facade is decorated with glossy MDF, and the apron is made of raw metal coarse black paint – what you need for a young man's apartment, ”says Constantine.
As for the bathroom, played on the contrast: the lining of white tiles in combination with black graphite slate – the joint decision of the designer and the customer.
One of the most important tasks of the project mid century modern furniture is planning for compact storage. The kitchen showed up overhead cabinets, where you can place utensils and spacious bottom modules – here are hidden appliances. In the boxes next to the cooking surface, it is convenient to store cutlery and household items.
