Edra Apartment
Shevchenkivskyi District, Kyiv, Ukraine, 2022
57.59 sq.m.
Conception of this small apartment was created for a young girl who is deep in love with design, especially graphic design. She used to live in China for a couple of years, but now she decided to move back to Kyiv and create a new home full of senсes and harmony — the place where she can creates art and live to the fullest.
We decided to combine the kitchen with the bedroom and create one large space that gives a better perception of scale. There are also two other rooms: bathroom with a big window installed in the top of wall and dressing room. The main design conception is combine together gorgeous furniture and natural textures that create a right mood - something between American modern interior and Italian chic mixed with the color pallet of China`s suburb.

Build-in kitchen made in walnut lumber with stone countertop. The center of kitchen composition is ceramic sink combined with bridge faucet with side sprayer Artesso by Brizo. They are set beneath a pair of Atil sconces produced by Valencia-based Aromas studio. In the center of kitchen area are custom-designed wooden table with pairs of vintage Wohlert Church Chairs designed by Vilhelm Wohlert in 1956 and produced by Stellar Works. White PH 5 lamp by Louis Poulsen hang above table.  

The best part of kitchen is the wall construction with rounded edges that hides a range hood. This design creates an unforgettable silhouette that attracts attention. All walls are covered with microcement.

The living area combines a black colored vintage Karin armchair designed by Bruno Mathsson in 1960, orange coffee table with Masa vase by Antonio Lupi stand beside, white Mex Cube sofa by Cassina is set beneath a Atil sconce and Gina`s Warfel artwork called Plunge. In front of the sofa is a Marcio Display coffee table echoes the dramatic shapes of Brazilian mid-century designs.

The bedroom area combines Kubic 24 bed designed by Roberto Gabbo, custom-made wooden bedside table with gorgeous ceramic lamp created by Melbourne-based artist Sarah Nedovic Gaunt. HAY`s CPH 190 desk and vintage Domus chair produced by Artek in 1946 stands in front of panoramic window with view on the city.

The bedroom area separated by the sliding curtain and a large floor constructions covered in travertine. New floor level creates a good stress and makes this open space feel more unusual. The additional idea is to give a small bathroom an opportunity to get natural light. Therefore, we made a large window built into the top of wall between the bathroom and bedroom.

Custom-designed sink made in dark wood and artificial stone combined with black colored Code collection of faucets designed by Spanish brand Inbani. Fragile Atil sconce and small custom-made mirror are set at the top. Center of the composition is white ceramic Shui Comfort LivingTec bath tub designed by Italian brand Cielo.
