The apartment’s distinctive features, including the spacious corridor-gallery with its windows and arches, a loggia, and a balcony, served as the cornerstone of the project’s concept. The corridor, acting as the central artery, extends throughout the entire apartment, seamlessly integrating all areas into a cohesive space. Enhanced arches exude sophistication, achieved through the fusion of decorative molding and an inner wooden frame. The loggia underwent insulation and was seamlessly incorporated into the kitchen, where a conservatory for plants was thoughtfully placed.

During the project analysis phase, numerous visual distractions were identified, stemming from wall niches, variations in floor height, and exposed utilities. Consequently, during the demolition stage, it was decided to refurbish the flooring and reinforce windows and openings with a metal frame.

Following extensive consultations with the client, it was agreed to fuse classical elements with mid-century design pieces from the 1930s to the 1970s, seamlessly integrating them into the apartment’s ambiance. Vintage Cassina chairs, alongside Louis Poulsen, Flos, and Vibia lighting fixtures, in addition to furniture from Porro and B&B Italia, collectively evoke a nostalgic retro atmosphere.

To cultivate a sense of stability and tranquility, materials such as toned oak, marble, stainless steel, and brass were meticulously selected. Experimentally, sand was incorporated into the terrazzo flooring, while marble chips were embedded within mineral plaster on the walls, enhancing their texture and visual appeal.

The apartment’s design seamlessly interacts with art in its various forms. Sculptures by Dmytro Hrek, a diptych by Rostyslav Zavhorodniy, and paintings by Kristina Otchych-Cherniak elegantly complement the interior, enriching its aesthetic depth. Despite the challenges posed by the wartime context, the project was executed successfully, underscoring the timeless relevance of design and creativity.
