As the source material for designersGot not so much. The usual "dvushka" on 36 m2, typical old housing. However, a non-standard ceiling height of 4.2 meters came to the rescue, which allowed using not only horizontal, but also vertical space of the room. Small-sized owners are a married couple, both spouses are representatives of the creative profession, people are young and active, they love to travel a lot and meet with friends. Preference was given to the modern concept of a city apartment - the most functional room, bright and spacious, without cluttering with furniture. - This is the legacy of the industrial past. When the former factory and factory premises were empty, they were decided to be re-equipped as living space. The direction is characterized by high ceilings, plenty of natural light and cold colors in the interior (blue, metallic, etc.). It was this idea that inspired the studio The Goort. For a start, redevelopment was required. The broken proportions made the room look like a well. It was a great success that there were no bearing walls in it and it was possible to combine the entire area together (with the exception of the bathroom and dressing room). A ceiling of more than 4 meters made it possible to divide the future family nest into two levels. On the ground floor there is a hall, a small kitchen, a living room and a bathroom; on the second - a spacious and sleeping area. The manufacturing style, brutality and the spirit of freedom are underlined by the relief decoration of the wall with specially aged brick and ordinary untreated plywood. The idea of natural materials is supported by a ceiling of thin bleached boards, stairs combined with metal and wooden floor. Given the small size of housing, largethe relevance of the issue of storage. Experts also approached its solution in a very extraordinary way. On the ground floor there is a huge closet all over the wall. Its main feature is the staircase on the rails, which can be easily moved, as well as the projection screen, which is hidden behind the doors. At the bottom of the collapsible table fits easily, puffs, folding chairs and pillows. Upstairs for the owners is equipped with a spacious wardrobe and bookcase, kitchen equipment modest, including only the most necessary. Despite the fact that the three huge windows from the floor toThe ceiling fills the room with natural light, making it even more attractive for living. A large number of additional lighting elements are used. They act as zoning elements: two metal hangers in the living room, sconces near the stairs on a thin tripod, ceiling spots with a turn function. The interior is characterized by a natural color palette, which is emphasized by a white ceiling covering and a wardrobe, balancing it and bringing it into harmony. The atmosphere in the living room is set by a large sofa andbanquettes. They are complemented by weightless coffee tables, which, like a children's pyramid, can be hidden one below the other or moved to the right place. For parties and guests there is a long bar counter along the entire wall with windows, which in everyday life can be used as a decorative part or module for storage. The kitchen area is very small and at first glance it may seem that there is nothing in it. However, the flat white wall surface, as if by magic, contains all the necessary appliances, including a washing machine. Due to the unique design space can easily be transformed depending on the needs. This is a noisy holiday, quiet gatherings with friends while watching a movie, buffet or official approx. All this is achieved by flexible and mobile zoning of a very limited area. Readers certainly noticedminimal use of textiles in the room, you can note only the presence of small pillows in the living room. Large windows, of course, create space for creating luxurious draperies, but under these conditions they would invariably turn a house into a box. Therefore, it was decided to equip them with a roller design - compact and interesting in form. Graffiti is added to the graffiti. Specially accessories and items that did not match the loft style were not selected, the apartment owners themselves acquired decorative elements in such a harsh atmosphere. As acknowledged by the authors of the project they did not putbefore a task to withstand all the design and layout within a certain style. Initially there was a desire to work with non-standard space of the room, which had its own characteristics. It is impossible to make the interior detached from the construction of the building itself, they are interconnected and impose on each other a certain imprint. If you like the style of urban loft, then we recommend using a few tips to translate it into your own apartment.
- This direction assumes the most open area, so feel free to remove all the doors and walls, except the bathroom;
- use the dominant principle when choosing furniture, let it be a little, but it draws attention to itself;
- open your eyes to what you can: shelves and racks, concrete or brick walls, etc .;
- Let the storage function is performed by one large-sized system (a cabinet under the ceiling, a podium with drawers).
