The more toys and textbooks a child has, the moremore boxes are needed for them. But not every nursery can accommodate them. We found an interesting solution for organizing space and order. This 14 square meter room, in which a teenage girl lives, is located in a typical Moscow apartment. And the problem with such rooms is the same: cluttering up with a lot of things. All kinds of small furniture - wardrobes, dressers, shelves, a desk - create a feeling of constant chaos, even when, at first glance, everything is tidied up in the room. This is aggravated by the living of a teenager who is not yet fully accustomed to order, and often does not burn with the desire to direct it. It is often quite difficult to solve such problems. However, Anastasia Sheveleva and Alexander Malinin from INT2 architecture, whom the girl's parents trusted, transformed the room beyond recognition. Anastasia Sheveleva, architect-designer Graduated from the Volgograd State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering in 2009. Participated in summer schools and workshops in the Netherlands, Austria, Japan, Russia. Co-founder of INT2 architecture, leading architect and project designer. Loves foreign languages: speaks English, German, a little Spanish. Alexander Malinin, architect Graduated from the Volgograd State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering in 2005. Participated in workshops in Europe and Russia. Co-founder of INT2 architecture, leading architect and project designer. Music is the second passion. Analog photography and travel is the third. Customer Dreams The room to be renovated was filled with a lot of scattered furniture: a wardrobe for the whole family, shelves with books, a chest of drawers with small things and books, a single bed and a work desk. The customers asked to transform all this chaos into a comfortable and compact space in which a growing up girl would feel comfortable. Alexander Malinin, architect: - We proposed to arrange all disparate pieces of furniture into one group in one part of the room. This would free up another part of it, and even begin to seem a little more spacious. To realize this idea, we have designed a multifunctional "box" in which all things fit: from clothes and bedding to books and all sorts of little things. And, of course, they planned a place to sleep and rest. Features of the layout The shape of the room -rectangular, almost square. Therefore, in order for this entire storage system to fit in such a small room, a podium bed with wardrobes for things was placed by the window, and the work table was placed closer to the door, adding a large mirror to the wall opposite from the window. Anastasia Sheveleva, architect-designer:- On the wall opposite from the "box" we have placed a multifunctional surface, which is a mirror, organizer and screen. This was done with the help of a sliding panel, which in one position opens the organizer, in the other - a mirror, and in the center is a screen for the projector. Color solution There are no flashy colors in the interior. Only calm, light pastel shades: white walls and ocher color of the "box" as a background; while mint, coral and gray give lovely and very soft accents. Play of light Since the ceiling height is quite"Modest" - only 2.5 meters, it was required to preserve the feeling of spaciousness as much as possible. For this, light was also used. Surface-mounted and pendant lights were made in the free zone, and built-in lighting in the "box". Furniture and interior items Almost all itemsthe furnishings are made of plywood furniture. A spacious wardrobe with a niche for a bed fits well into the interior. It has open shelves for storage, closed and even hidden ones. And drawers and a compartment for clothes are located under the bed and to the right of it. As for the decor, it is, so to speak, as minimalistic as possible: painted triangles on the floor and walls, posters with copies of illustrations from books on entomology of the 18th-19th centuries. Materials and finishes The project used onlynatural materials: engineering board on the floor (plywood + solid oak), and the "box" is made of coniferous plywood, the basket for trifles is woven of rattan, there are plaster decorations, and all textiles are made of cotton, linen and wool.
