If you have a narrow room and you do not know howPut all that is needed in it, read this article. In it, the architect Nadezhda Kapper on a real example shows that, if desired, even in such a room, you can place almost all of the Narrow Rooms-the scourge of many Soviet-era apartments. Even if their area is decent, all the same with the placement of problems. We turned to the architect Nadezhda Kapper with a request to give her recommendations on the layout of the narrow room. Nadezhda Kapper, architect Graduated from St. Petersburg Architectural and Construction College, St. Petersburg State Architectural and Construction University. From 2002 to 2007 she worked in LENNIIPROEKT. In 2007, she moved to Moscow, worked at the Intars Bureau, the Lyzlov Architectural Workshop, and Kirill Istomin Interior Design & Decoration. Now he is engaged in private practice. "Modern architects have such an unwritten rule when designing a layout: it is undesirable that the length of the room exceeds the width more than 2 times," says Nadezhda Kapper. - But there are apartments in which this rule is violated. For example, in the former communal apartments there often come across "room-cars" - long and narrow. What to do, if fate brought you with such a complex in proportion room? You can group furniture in such a way thatThe symmetry axes of these groups were perpendicular to the long side of the room. Due to this from one elongated space we get mental "2 squares". You can allocate partitions, for example, a dressing room, cutting off the excess length of the room. You can expand the space by placing a long wall of mirrors or wallpaper. You can zonirovat room racks, curtains or lamps, or you can divide it with the textures of floor and wall coverings. In general, the more difficult the problem, the more interesting the result of its solution can be. My friend wanted to combine 2 narrow, long andIn addition, there are also high rooms. At the same time it was necessary to get a full sleeper and leave a fairly spacious living room. The height of the room made it possible to look for a planning solution not in 2 but in 3 dimensions. We decided to use the loft bed, freeing up as much space as possible for the guests at the bottom. And the bed and the sofas are located along one wall, so that the TV can be seen from any level. Under the bed is a cozy chill-out. The symmetrical composition of the TV zone accentuates the visual axis perpendicular to the long wall of the room, which also expands the space. Parquet boards usually have ends to the window, so as not to emphasize the pattern of seams, but in this case, the windows face north, so that shadows from the joints can not be feared. In this case, I would recommend that you have a parquet pattern across the room as well. "
