The apartment is located on the 4th floor of a residential house, which was built in 1905, in the historical area of Kyiv. The space itself is luminous: all the windows overlook a quiet green park, and the light freely streams through them. Because of the state of the building, a massive renovation of the flat was required. The process of dismantling revealed the rotten slabs and large cracks in the walls, and that flooring replacement is needed. We found an authentic alternative, namely an oak parquet, which is about 100 years old. The bedroom can be seen through the double door from the living room. The walls were painted on top of plaster, with the deep texture being left as it is. The angle between walls and ceiling was smoothed out — this was a popular solution for the old flats in Kyiv. Our solution was not to copy the “Parisian chic” tricks. This decorative element was produced by hand from gypsum, according to our 3D model. The bathroom is separated from the bedroom with a glass partition and a soft tulle. Photos: Yevhenii Avramenko
What a calm, soothing sanctuary Rina Lovko Design Studio created in this apartment. I’m fighting back tears reading this description and hoping the owner of this apartment is able to find refuge and peace in this space despite what is going on outside those windows 🙁
No me gustó. Muy sombrio y monótono
I couldn’t live with such minimalism… but I admire those who can.
