Umber was one of the first pigments used by humans, which was found on cave paintings from the neolithic period. That`s why it`s so pleasant for human eye and comfortable for using in a living space.
Burnt umber is made by heating umber, which makes it more unusual and pronounced. That`s why the color was used in the project for a lot. At the same time it was important to make a light space and use white walls and natural materials, such as concrete and wood.
Because of a big and high windows we decided to make a sitting curbstone that repeats the geometry of the walls. Also it hides the heaters. That idea was implemented in every room.
In the kitchen we put a hanging shelf with plants to make the apartment more fresh and cozy.
