The typical layout has undergone a number of changes.First, a large room was divided by a partition into two unequal parts. They decided to use the room with a window as a nursery. A room without natural light - for a living room. Secondly, Elena Bulagina decided to combine a bathroom with a toilet and a corridor leading to the kitchen. Thanks to this solution, it was possible to significantly increase the area of the bathroom, which, in turn, made it possible to place a washing machine there, and use the space above the machine for household needs. They decided to turn the loggia into a recreation room, having previously insulated and placed a winter garden and a hookah room there. On the balcony adjacent to the parents' bedroom, it was decided to equip a dressing room, for this they made the necessary insulation of the walls and ceiling, and installed electric heating mats on the floor.
The architect was faced with the task: Turn a standard apartment with all the nuances of standard housing in a modern comfortable multifunctional apartment that meets modern requirements for the comfort of housing, with a bright, cheerful, emotional interior design.
