The tightness of a small apartment can be forit is both a minus and a plus - after all, this is not only crampedness, but also compactness: everything you need is nearby, literally at hand, and the necessary thing will not get lost in the bowels of the apartment. In our review - the most interesting layouts of small apartments There are many techniques that allow you to compactly and rationally arrange all the necessary furnishings, even in the most confined space. But the smaller the area of the apartment, the more carefully you need to think over the layout of the premises, and here it is better to contact a specialist who has experience in solving such problems. etk-fashion.com asked the practicing architect Igor Bokov to comment on some typical cases of planning and zoning of small apartments, highlighting both the strengths and weaknesses of each of the layouts. Igor Bokov, architect A graduate of the Faculty of Architecture of the South Ural State University, since 2010 he has been conducting private practice, in 2013-2015 he received additional education at the MArchI's master's program. In design, he specializes in the architecture of private houses, redevelopment and design of city apartments, he is fond of designing and designing furniture. https://vk.com/id2564168 The area of this apartment allows you to place twoFull rooms, besides, judging by the shape of the walls, the loggia was also insulated and combined with the main room. Functional zones have remained the same, and redevelopment redistributes the common space, giving more space to the bathroom and kitchen-dining room due to the reduction of the areas of the bedroom and the hallway. In order not to clutter the bedroom, storage furniture is built-in, and the chest of drawers is located between the bedroom and the living room and is designed immediately for two rooms. Small apartment area is rationalIs organized by an angled wall along which there was a place for both a wardrobe with clothes and a kitchen set, with more compact furniture placed in the hall area, and in the kitchen area there is more space and enough space for a dining table. The sleeping area is well hidden behind the bend, and even has its own dressing room. The area of the bathroom allows you to place even a full bath instead of a shower - for example, by moving the wash basin into place, sliding the door to the shelves in the bathroom and pictures in the corridor and, accordingly, placing a bath along the wall of the dressing room. Placing the bed right in front of the front door -not the strongest side of this apartment, however, there is nowhere else to place an extensive dressing room with an entrance from the bedroom, or you will get a completely different layout. Otherwise, we have before us a quite typical studio apartment, with spacious and varied auxiliary premises. Largely due to these rooms, the complexity of the outline of the outer walls, which is set by the wall running diagonally, is leveled. Igor Bokov: - The complex configuration of the original premises often hides many possibilities that facilitate zoning, and here it is important for the customer to work together - to correctly prioritize, identify important and secondary premises for himself, and the architect - to see all possible options for their placement and arrange so, to accommodate the maximum number of needs. A luxurious bay window is the best place for a lunchTable and chairs, but its distance from the kitchen to the opposite side of the apartment makes it difficult to serve daily. It is possible, over time, in the opening of the kitchen will appear a countertop like a bar counter, the more there is a window. Also in this apartment, having reduced the dressing room of the bedroom and having moved the bathroom in the formed niche, by changing the sanitary ware and refusing the countertop of the washstand, it would be possible to make room for the built-in wardrobe in the hallway. The peculiarity of this apartment is the "tunnel"Layout: on one end there is an entrance door, on the opposite are grouped windows. The dining table is already located more conveniently than in the previous version, but the entrance area had to be sacrificed for the sake of a disproportionately large bathroom: in size it is comparable to the bedroom. In the hallway, most likely, immediately appear spontaneous shelves, boxes, hooks and similar devices. "Tunnel" of this apartment does not rush at allIn the eyes thanks to proportions close to the square, but the distance from the kitchen to the kitchen requires a device for opening over the kitchen countertop. Compact, often built-in storage systems create a sense of room in the rooms. Apartment for an extrovert - such impressionHere it is created by the most open and free arrangement of furniture in the center of premises. The combination of a kitchen sink with a dining table is a welcome for an amateur, but it can save a lot of space. The cloakroom is quite capacious, but it could be arranged more rationally by unfolding the corner part with the entrance to the hallway, and replacing the wall with the entrance from the bedroom with a closet. An apartment where guests are often welcomed anda lot - this is indicated by a developed sofa area, a separate dining area and a bar counter that occupies a central place. Against their background, the private part, consisting only of one bed in the far corner, looks extremely modest. However, whether this is really so, one can still doubt, having discerned a staircase near the entrance door leading down to the premises of the lower level - after all, the purpose of these premises may be the most unexpected. Igor Bokov: - An apartment on several levels usually has guest rooms downstairs, and above it - a private, private area. This is due to the fact that it is more logical to place the entrance to the apartment on the lower of the levels, since in any case we enter the building from the ground level - there is no point in going up to the extra floor every time, then to go down, especially taking guests through private premises. The only exception is the basement floor, however, firstly, we only go down to it, and we enter directly from the ground level, and secondly, it is not customary to place living quarters in the basement, moreover, this is contraindicated by building codes. Does this apartment have a separate, equippedThe hall area below, in front of the stairs, or limited only by the entrance door - in this case it is not so important, because the set of functional zones of the visible part is completely self-sufficient. Important here is the location of the entrance to the center of the total volume, which, with elongated proportions of the apartment with windows in the end wall, greatly facilitates the layout of the premises. The accommodation of the bedroom right next to the entrance is certainly not the best option, but it is due to the obligatory natural light for the day stay zone and the kitchen, and its secondary importance for the bedroom and bathroom. Three versions of studio apartments, similar in compositionAnd almost identical in functionality: a full entrance hall and an extensive corner dining area, though slightly to the detriment of the kitchen set, a bathroom and a living room area, combined with the bedroom. The feasibility of an additional dining table, in which the sleeper in the second version is transformed, can be questioned. Thus, the very first option here turns out to be the most successful: a complete set of necessary functions, two main berths and two additional ones, if you decompose the sofa.
