The apartment is located in one of the picture-perfect districts of St. Petersburg - the Petrograd Side. It is a part of a vintage apartment building with high ceilings and large windows. Therefore, together with the client, we were to maintain a delicate balance between the dominating refined delicacy, state-of-the-art technology and interior design options.
Early in the project, it was important for us to solve a number of planning challenges to make the space as comfortable and usable for our client as possible. Hence, in the apartment layout we got rid of some existing design concepts. In terms of layout, we virtually divided the apartment into two parts. Private part - a bedroom with a wardrobe, a closet and a living room which could later be transformed in a children's room. Public part - an entrance hall, an eat-in kitchen and a guest bathroom. Not violate the existing regulations, we decided to leave the bathroom where it is, i.e. on the border of the apartment zones. The entry hall, which unites two parts of the apartment, also has virtual division into zones with a number of premises. The hall dimensions were rearranged in such a way to expand the bathroom and accommodate a bath tub with a wall-hung system, a sink and a shower. In addition, we made an opening between the hall and the living room. This solution allowed making the hall more independent. Service and living areas became more spacious. We placed an additional closet in the opening we made.
Based on the layout concept, we achieved our primary objective with the help of suitable decorative elements and finishing materials. In terms of overall color design, we used neutral tones. Some items of furniture, light and decorations served as the highlights.
