Functionality as art

In this apartment in the Moscow business-class residential complex "Discovery Park," it was important to make it not only stylish but also highly functional. Fortunately, there were no load-bearing walls inside the apartment, so we had a lot of freedom to create the perfect layout. And it all worked out! On such a small area, we managed to fit two bedrooms, a walk-in closet, a living room with a kitchen area, and two bathrooms. In the second bathroom, we designed a small shower so that the owners could wash their beloved corgi's paws after walks.

Bold character

In this project, we immersed ourselves in the play of rich textures, bold lines, as well as intricate and vibrant natural patterns. The space is filled with original geometric accents. Modules of linear ceiling lights are arranged at an angle, resembling an artistic statement about the priority of individuality. Similarly shaped metal elements divide the porcelain stoneware tiles on the floor into asymmetrical parts, creating visual harmony with the lighting elements.

Nature and urbanism

In the design of different zones, we used a mesmerizing combination of marble-like patterns, Italian Laminam porcelain stoneware with an imitation of aged wood, and vibrant, slightly eccentric ceramic tiles resembling stone – these tiles are reminiscent of abstract expressionist paintings. We chose green as an accent color, and it harmoniously complements this exuberance of nature tamed by the city.

Lots of air

We aimed to create a sense of open space and roominess, which is particularly important given the small size of the apartment. The living room window provides a sense of perspective, as it is visible from the entrance door. There is a lot of frosted glass used here, particularly in the bathroom design, and the upper parts of the walls in the living and kitchen area are adorned with mirrored panels, visually making the ceilings appear higher.

Floating counter

The living room is divided into two areas by a floating bar counter without legs. Take note of the elegant metal structure that simulates the attachment of the counter to the ceiling. It not only defines the space but also complements the decorative plaster panel on one of the walls in the room.
