THE STORY AND THE SOLUTION
People associate loft with open spaces where even a bathroom can be unseparated. In Skyline we made a modified version of the loft – one-bedroom apartment for a comfortable living of a bachelor.
The interior is simple and honest: concrete walls, wooden floor and brick masonry in the bathroom. The monochrome palette we complete with the light wood – oak parquet floor and wooden panels on the walls for zoning the flat.
The apartment isn’t cluttered with decor elements. Designers focused on a free layout and natural materials. The glass wall separates a living room and a bedroom, preserving the integrity of the space.
In the loft, as in a detective. For adding up a general picture, you should pay attention to details. Raw unprocessed walls; heavy curtains, where you can hide half of the world from the dazzling rays; and abstract pictures by Sergey Makhno.
Brutal sketches in the space are open communications. We did not mask the black ceiling wires, allowing them to become an interior emphasis.
The soft furniture, a reading chair in the bedroom, a sofa and a couch in the living room, domesticate the apartment.
Metal formed the basis for lamps, highlighting the industrialist character of the space.
Every dish, even made of ordinary ingredients, has own particularity. А spice of this interior is an island that replaced a traditional kitchen table. A perfect thing for a comfortable cooking and a large party throw.
The table top of artificial stone visually enhances the space. A material for the kitchen – matt black steel.
In the wall we hid a mini-library – six shelves with a backlight (not to lose a stash among books).
Traditionally we had no light limits. Loft connected a variety of shapes and colors. Black ceiling chandeliers and floor lamps live together with white and blue spotlights.
