ARCHITECTURAL WORKSHOP ARCHITECTURAL INITIATIVES — HEAD NATALIA OLEKSIENKO.
The object “Apartment with garden” is located on the first floor of a seven-story building from the beginning of the last century. Following the lost tradition, it was decided to organize own private entrance to the apartment through a spacious terrace. Interior zoning is designed for one, maximum two inhabitants. The living room is designed as a single space with a kitchen and dining area. The bedroom is a complete isolated space with a private bathroom. A walk-in closet, a laundry room, and a guest bathroom – all the necessary rooms could fit in 57 m2 while retaining the feeling of spaciousness in the main living area. One of the interior features is the use of elements of garden architecture, for example, pergolas over the kitchen area. Ceiling drops have the character of the canopies on the terrace. Shades of natural colors are used in the decoration of rooms – from sandy to deep blue, and in general their palette is consonant with the lively nature outside the windows. The interior, as planned, is constantly in dialogue with the “plain air” – responding reflexes to sun glare or the movement of clouds.
