"A temporary family apartment in Odessa with a glass floor, a three-meter aquarium, and pandas in a bathroom."
Our clients live abroad. They wanted to have a contemporary temporary apartment with a feeling of homecoming.
We started with a concept ‘simplicity as a new classics’ and simplified the design to the essential.
It’s simple even in color - calm grey, blue, natural wooden. Every item was chosen to be long lasting both in quality and style.
When a kitchen is closed, it looks like a stainless steel box.
From the other side, this box hides a bathroom with little pandas - our handmade ceramic pendant lamps.
A sense of movement in space is created through the light. The main floor is 4-meter-height with huge panoramic windows. Daylight fills almost every corner of the apartment. You can't hide. You don’t need to hide.
Working on the project we’re lucky with two things.
Firstly, it’s the last floor of a housing complex. Secondly, the building is arranged in such a way
that we managed to broad the space and create an additional floor for a bedroom.
Simple, but not simple - words that perfectly describe a bedroom interior.
When you come in, your eyes are drawn to the glass floor. We didn’t overlap the space. It’s open and… breathtaking.
