xDesigned by Dreamdesign, this two-storey apartment is located in Kyiv downtown. Originally, the house was built in the last century by a famous architect Joseph Karakis. Its history and the unique atmosphere of the old city became the semantic background and the starting point for renovation of the apartment. Using timeless solutions such as natural textures, restrained colors, and eco-friendly materials, the apartment is well designed to make sure it won’t go out of fashion and age beautifully.
The apartment has two storeys. The lower one has kitchen, dining room, living room, and bathroom on it. The second level that can be reached via a sculptural staircase has a bedroom, a study and library room, and a shower rooms with skylight windows. In the living room, to contrast the monochromatic white, grey, and black surfaces, there are azure armchairs and the atmosphere of old Kyiv that bursts into the interior through large windows.
Metal in a certain form is present in all rooms: it was used to decorate window slopes, to sheathe the fireplace, and metal decorative elements were also integrated into bathroom and bedroom.
