A series of block structures II-68 was the basisfor the development of several buildings: II-68-02, II-68-03. The buildings were built only in a tower configuration, with the number of tiers 12, 14 or 16, in most cases they are paired. Apartments in houses from up to three-room layouts. The construction time of the structure refers to Brezhnev. The main advantage of this type of house is wide balconies, which, with effective thermal insulation, can significantly expand the living space. In some buildings, housing has a niche between the kitchen area and the living room, which removes the difficulties with its transformation. With an apartment of more than 34 sq. m. this is especially important. The dressing room, or its other name, the pantry, was also a successful construction technology of that time. The stove in such houses is of an exclusively electric type. Consider three ways to redevelop.
Option One: for a couple and a child with a children's playroom
Bathroom enlarged due to the corridor. The result was an area for a washing machine. The fence between the living room and hallway removed. The entrance door to the kitchen was displaced and placed at an angle, as a result of which it increased in size due to mixing the wall with the bathroom. The room is divided into two areas: a living room (which is also their bedroom) and a nursery (playing room with a bed, a table and shelves). The partition is made with a height of about two meters. The merits. This layout provides the opportunity to live in a small area of the family with the child. The kitchen sphere at the same time remains independent. The baby has its own secluded place that will help to establish the right atmosphere in the house. Disadvantages. The area of the corridor has become smaller. The parent couple was left without a full bed (however, you can change the sofa for her).
Option Two: for two adults with a workspace
The bathroom is enlarged by the corridor. Difference from the first variation is the preservation of a small area of the hallway at the entrance. You can also find a place for the location of the washing machine. The wall between the living room and the hallway is dismantled. The entrance door to the kitchen shifted to the window opening and enlarged. The salon is divided into two functional areas: a bedroom with a full wide bed and an office desk. These parts are separated by a narrow fence, the width of which is not more than a meter in height, as well as the TV table. The merits. Kitchen space kept separate. A spacious bed and an office desk for one person make it possible to work at home comfortably Disadvantages. It is difficult to make friends because there is no guest room.
For a bachelor or a couple with an open kitchen
Bathroom enlarged due to the corridor. All walls, in addition to the bathroom were removed, as a result, an open space was formed. Separation of the guest and kitchen areas is carried out due to a small fence in the central part of the room and various flooring finishes (parquet for the salon and tiles for the kitchen and corridor). There is also a desktop. The merits. The layout is more suitable for a young unmarried young man. Do not clutter up the wall space, there is an office space, you can comfortably make friends. Disadvantages. Combining the kitchen and the room brings some inconvenience as a result of smells during cooking. Sofa set to replace the bed.
