How to convert a 55sqm studiometers into a full-fledged two-room apartment so that at the same time it remains cozy and spacious? Considering a real example from Moscow To turn a typical studio of a modest area into an ultra-modern, functional, but not overloaded with unnecessary details and meaningless gadgets, a dwelling, though not the simplest one, is achievable. Especially when professionals are involved. So the owner of a small Moscow apartment turned to the designers from the Interierium studio with a similar request. How they coped with the task, read in this article. Elena Vasilchuk, architect-designer She graduated from the Architectural Institute, work experience in the profession - about 10 years. Multiple finalist of the PinWin professional competition. Founder and owner of his own studio Interierium. Professional tasks: to display the character of the customer in the interior, meet all his expectations and fit into the specified budget. interierium.com Ivan Ureka, Architect-Designer Graduate of the Architectural University. During and after his studies he worked in several architectural studios, until together with Elena Vasilchuk he founded his own. Member of the Association of Interior Decorators (ODI) and multiple finalist of the PinWin professional competition. Engaged in the design of the author's interiors of apartments, country houses, cafes, restaurants, offices. interierium.com Customer wishes The customer is a young man of 28 years old, working in the IT-sphere. Hobbies include good music, cinema and modern technology. Initially, the project was conceived as just a small apartment in a modern style - there are a lot of them now. However, the designers immediately proposed a rather bold move - redevelopment, and further changes were not long in coming. An automated home theater appeared in the project (just one keystroke - and now a large screen hidden in the ceiling structure appears, and special blinds are lowered onto the windows) and the Smart Home system, which allows you to adjust the light in different parts of the apartment, turn on music to the mood and adjust the comfortable temperature. Another customer's wish was an interesting one, which the designers realized by creating several schemes that correspond to different scenarios. Features of the layout Despite the fact that this is a project of an apartment in a new building, Ivan and Elena decided to change the layout proposed by the developer. According to their plan, the kitchen was moved to the corridor (the transfer of the so-called "wet zones" was agreed upon), and a full-fledged room was formed at its former location. Living room Severalinteresting "chips": starting with a stylish bio fireplace and ending with a built-in speaker system, which is almost invisible under painting, but at the same time retains excellent sound. For a comfortable stay, all the main points have been thought out: warm floors, a comfortable sofa, clothes, books, video equipment and little things. Bedroom Resulting from redevelopmenta full bedroom can be either completely fenced off or opened into a single space with the living room using sliding partitions. Their fastening is provided in such a way that it "hides" behind the structure of the suspended ceiling. For this room, the designers proposed another non-trivial solution - to place the bed on the podium. Its design is multifunctional: it allows you to admire a beautiful view from the window (the apartment is located on one of the upper floors), at the same time it is a place for long-term storage of things and even, due to the optimal height, can be used as a seat for guests. There is also a small workplace here. And with the help of sliding interior partitions, the bedroom is easily combined with the living room area. Kitchen At first glance, a small kitchen turned out to bevery comfortable. The facades are made in an interesting natural stone finish. A bright accent is a single saturated yellow color with an apron made of a new material for Russia - cryon. The kitchen is fully equipped technically: there is a dishwasher, an extractor hood, a fridge-freezer, a built-in oven with a combi-steamer function, a microwave oven and even a chopper in the sink. The dining area repeats the kitchen set in style and colors. Corridor In the corridor there is a dressing room withhidden door, inside of which there are open shelves and a hanger, a brick wall with lighting. The air conditioning system is also hidden here. The wall opposite the dressing room is finished with plaster 3D panels and a floor-to-ceiling mirror panel, which allows not only visually expanding the space of a narrow corridor, but also seeing your reflection in full growth. Bathroom The bathroom has a large sink, a washing machine and a dryer are hidden in the closet, and a hammam system is provided in the shower room for additional comfort. The finish is very calm, neutral in color, but interesting due to the combination of different textures. Colors and materials The color scheme turned outvery bold, contrasting, but at the same time cozy. Modern materials were used in the decoration of the apartment: concrete, kryon, slate. There are bright color accents in the form of paintings, textiles, a backsplash, upholstery of chairs, while they are diluted with such traditional materials as wood and travertine, and the beige color of the walls makes the atmosphere warmer. Elena Vasilchuk, architect-designer:- When the client completely trusts the designer and is ready to experiment, the result is an unusual, memorable and characteristic interior. We wanted to create something modern, bright, but at the same time cozy for this customer. I think we did it. Ivan Ureka, architect-designer: - In addition to the aesthetic aspects, we paid great attention to the practical component of the interior. Thanks to this, we have obtained not just an eye-pleasing design, but a truly high-quality product with a professional approach to every detail and to every technical solution.
