Scandinavian style in the reading studioINT2architecture is a project filled with light, air and bright spring tints, which will not get bored. At this time, the project of the week we chose a light and bright apartment in Scandinavian style from the studio INT2architecture. The beauty of this object is indisputable, but it has many nuances that are imperceptible at first glance. Studio INT2architecture is a young, active, multidisciplinary team of architects, designers, artists, photographers and philosophers, which has been active since 2008. The main specialization of the studio INT2architecture is the design of private country houses, the design of private and public interiors, landscape and industrial design. Alexander Malinin, an architect, graduated from the Volgograd State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering (Department "Residential and Public Buildings") in 2005. Participated in workshops in Europe and Russia. Co-founder of INT2architecture, a leading architect and project designer. Anastasia Sheveleva, architect, graduated from the Volgograd State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering (Department of Residential and Public Buildings) in 2009.

Co-founder of INT2architecture, a leading architect and project designer. - Tell us about the customer of this project. - The customer of the project is a young unmarried girl, a financier. She is very fond of traveling. "Where is this apartment?" - The apartment has an area of 45 square meters. m is in a new house in Khimki. Inside were already installed interior partitions, windows and radiators, an electrician was bred. - Will the redevelopment be carried out? - The project assumes a complete redevelopment of the apartment with the demolition of the internal partitions (except for the bathroom). Windows and radiators remain. - What were the requirements of the customer? - The main goal was the creation of a beautiful and functional interior, taking into account the minimum area of the apartment and the low cost of the project. Functionally in a small apartment it was required to place a bedroom with a small wardrobe, a living area with a sofa bed, an armchair and a coffee table, a kitchen with a bar counter, a wardrobe for outer clothing in the hallway. It was also necessary to find additional storage space for things. Alexander Malinin, architect: "With the help of rational redevelopment it was possible to functionally divide the space of a one-room apartment into a living room, a sleeping area and a kitchen and at the same time visually unite it. One of the main problems of small apartments - lack of space for storing things - was solved with the help of "thickened" new partitions, which are turned into cupboards (referring to the built-in closet in the hallway and a small wardrobe from the sleeping area). In addition, the bed in the bedroom is raised on the podium to, on the one hand, visually divide the living room and bedroom areas, and on the other - to get additional storage space for such bulky things as blankets, pillows, bed linens, etc. On the balcony, seats are made of repainted army boxes, which can also be used for storage. " - How did you work with color design? - The whole interior is decided in soft light colors. The color solution is based on a combination of white background and color accents: coral - in the bedroom, emerald - in the kitchen, yellow - in the bathroom, blue - on the balcony. - Which floor, wall and ceiling coverings are selected andwhy? - A laminate with a light wood texture is used to cover the floor of the apartment. On the floor of the bathroom is used a black mosaic-honeycomb - hexagon with a chip size of 5x5 cm. The walls are supposed to be painted white, some walls are decoratively processed for brick. Apron in the kitchen - ceramic tiles with a seal (20x20 cm). Also part of the partition near the bar is painted with special paint for school boards, thanks to which a solid frosted slate for writing with chalk appeared. The wall of red brick on the balcony is painted white, so that the blue window frames installed by the builder harmoniously fit in the interior. In the bathroom one of the walls comes from the floor with a black mosaic-honeycomb, the others use white tile Kerama Marazzi with a size of 10 × 10 cm with partial printing of Scrubble letters, as well as painting with moisture resistant paint of white and dark gray. The bathroom screen is made of ceramic tiles, imitating a vintage tree. Anastasia Sheveleva, architect: "The apartment is in a round house, so the walls go along the radius, tapering slightly from the outer wall to the entrance. It did not become a problem. Wherever the built-in furniture is put, the finishers will take out the corners at 90 degrees. There is nothing more to do with an indirect angle. " - What furniture and light have chosen for interior decoration and why? - Furniture at the request of the customer is selected mainly in IKEA. Some items (podium, bar counter, built-in wardrobe in the hallway) will be produced in the workshop. Shelving on the balcony builders will make of black painted water pipes and wooden furniture boards for shelves. The army boxes on which they will sit will be made according to sketches, painted in the right color and stenciled on them with labels. Because of the small height of the room, the ceiling was decided not to be lowered, and for lighting use overhead lights and soffits, bought at IKEA and CenterCvete, as well as Muuto hanging lamps and homemade lamps from cans on the balcony. The ceiling is lowered only in the hallway and the bathroom, where the built-in lighting is used.
