How can I remake a one-room apartment: 33 meters for three -


How to reconcile the tastes of two generations in oneSpace? How to create an original and bright interior at 33 meters, accommodating everything you need? In this apartment you will be amazed by everything: from design to planning. Bonus article - councils for the creation of such an interior, and a selection of recommended items Neoclassic with a touch of artistic and exceptional functionality - nerasprostranonnoe phenomenon, but in a small space and a studio apartment at all unique. For the present owners - couples, moved to the capital of Novosibirsk - a temporary housing, arranged for a comfortable waiting putting new spacious treshki closer to the center of Moscow. The main owner in a couple of years will be their daughter, who dreams of enrolling in a theater school. Therefore, designer Alyona Timofeeva faced the task of Turgenev's spirit: reconcile the tastes and needs of "fathers and children", in this case mothers and daughters, in a very modest area of ​​33 square meters. And she took for it using neoclassical eclecticism, boldly and freely interpreting tradition for the benefit of its customers. Alena Timofeeva, architect-designer,Head of Studio FD: A graduate of the design faculty of the Moscow State Art University named after S.G. Stroganov, Alena has been designing private and public spaces since 2006. Behind him - dozens of interiors: private apartments, cottages and townhouses, offices, offices, exhibition premises. “Design starts with a plan, not a sofa” is a motto that demonstrates an approach to organizing spaces of any kind. “I always build the internal architecture in detail, and then complicate and fill it with details. Only in the fusion of high-quality design and precise stylistic solutions a unique interior is born, ”says Alena. The measuring plan of the apartment is provided by Alena Timofeeva The dismantling plan was provided by Alena Timofeeva The plan of the structures to be erected is provided by AlenaTimofeeva Organization of space Customers asked not to clutter up the apartment with oppressive built-in wardrobes - they got bored with typical pictures of sliding mirrored doors in friends' houses. I wanted a light and comfortable interior. But you can't do without spacious storage systems in such a space: a seasonal wardrobe and bed linen (there is no bedroom!) Need to be placed somewhere. Alena Timofeeva, Studio FD:- The task is not easy at first glance. But the decision came quickly after a detailed study of the plan. Initially, the kitchen had a complex, inconvenient layout: a ventilation duct was cut in where access was needed for servicing the riser and taking readings of water meters, the hallway went into the corner. In fact, 10.5 square meters of the original area was of little use and uncomfortable. So another room appeared in the apartment - a dressing room, and she solved all the difficulties with storage and the unnatural geometry of the room. The kitchen area was reduced to 8.5 square meters. m and took the shape of a square with a cut corner. Although I do not like the fifth wall, but in this case, this solution was optimal. Apartment plan with furniture arrangement providedAlena Timofeeva Kitchen We added an insulated loggia to the kitchen, organizing a storage system and a winter garden there (the customer loves flowers very much). A backlit easel was also placed there to display paintings and photographs. Kitchen furniture in the classic style was made to order, according to Alena's drawings, in order to get high kitchen cabinets up to the ceiling and thus visually enlarge the room. On the floor there is porcelain stoneware with marbled mosaic inlays. The same inserts are repeated on the kitchen backsplash. Alena Timofeeva, Studio FD:- Bright accents - designer chairs, graphic paintings and a collection of plates of the hostess of the house. But the most unusual of them is a black-and-white fresco with a landscape of autumn nature, printed on a natural canvas, across the entire wall. Against the background of the fresco there is a mirror in a metal molding that performs two tasks at once: to accumulate additional light and expand the space. Kitchen plan and exploration courtesy of AlenaTimofeeva Drawing-room Drawing-room, it is also a bedroom, "correct" for a classic rectangular interior with a bay window - the most multifunctional area of ​​the apartment. A coffee table is pushed into the bay window, where the second winter garden is located. A traditional Italian sofa of graceful-looking proportions turns into a bed of impressive dimensions - it was specially ordered with a large berth. Cabinet furniture was made to order according to Alena's sketches and drawings, in order to fit comfortably and accurately without cluttering the space. Living room plan and layout provided by AlenaTimofeeva In a decorative sense, the living room is the same mixture of modern bright accents with traditional elements. On the floor there is an oak floorboard, on the walls - wallpaper with a classic print, doors with a hint of a strict classic form. Alena Timofeeva, Studio FD: - The remaining picture was completed with rich colors of interior items in a modern style. The most striking detail is an armchair in luxurious turquoise leather from the Italian designer Roberto Lazzeroni, in whose support paintings by contemporary artists, orchids and cute figurines brought by customers from travels appeared in the interior. Artist Anna Silivonchik "A drop in the ocean" Chair Mamy Blye from Roberto Lazzeroni (Italy)Bathroom The classic base is porcelain stoneware imitating the texture of a stone. 3.9 square meters of floor space forced customers to make a difficult choice: a bathroom or a closet with a washing machine. As a result, we settled on a spacious shower room. To save useful centimeters, a corner cabinet with a sink was made to order. Bathroom plan and exploded view providedAlena Timofeeva Color and light The first impression of the apartment is not at all classical juiciness and play of colors. But in fact, it is created only by correctly selected accents. The general color scheme is very calm, it is difficult to get tired of it. Alena Timofeeva, Studio FD:- Look carefully - on the walls there is a light gray scale, classic white ceilings, on the floor - a dark oak board. Only bright details: turquoise armchair, coral pillows, paintings. Sit on the sofa - and you will not notice this brightness, only a pacifying palette will remain. This is done on purpose so that, turning into a sleeping area, the living room does not tire with catchy colors. Carefully thought-out, warm lighting “works” for the functionality of the interior. In the living room there is an overhead light, a floor lamp and directional illumination of paintings, accents are light shelves. In the kitchen, there is a pendant lamp above the table, a spot light around the perimeter of the working area and lighting for the cornice. Alena Timofeeva, Studio FD:- I believe that the project is based on "three pillars" - functionalism, modern classics and a certain amount of artistry. The owner of the apartment leaned towards traditional forms, but she understood that she was decorating an apartment for a young girl of a creative warehouse. She will hold noisy parties there and meet guests of her age and circle. The resulting compromise pleased everyone. The interior of this small and not well-planned apartment has become a vivid example of how you can embody the most daring ideas on a modest square and make the space beautiful, fashionable and practical!

To create in a small area a bright space in which classical and modern elements are naturally mixed, the following techniques will be useful:

  • Start not with a design, but with a layout. Consider the dimensions and purpose of each room, ergonomics, lighting and the needs of all who will use this room regularly.
  • Do not forget that the main signClassical interiors - proportionality. Correct geometric shapes and commensurate functional furniture are welcome. Excess, on the contrary, should be avoided.
  • At the heart of your palette should lie soft andComfortable shades. The floor, walls and ceilings in such interiors, as a rule, withstand in classical combinations: dark floors, white ceilings, pastel or discreet wall tones.
  • But some accents can and should beBright both in shape and color. Oscar Wilde once said that all the beautiful things belong to the same era. Excellent advice to the collector and fan of eclecticism. Experiment by mixing beautiful objects of different styles and directions.
  • Use the interior of the noble, natural textures - wood, stone, ceramics, metal and glass. And only as a separate bright elements - designer plastic.
