As far back as at the very beginning, when it came to choosing the interior’s concept itself, the architects of the FORM bureau along with the customer took a decision together to move away from the contemporary trends. Initially, there was only an approximate idea which had been evolving harmoniously during the process and, as a result, acquired new nuances.

The duplex apartment was chosen not by coincidence. The customer was looking specifically for space which could give the possibility to separate the area for hangouts from sleeping area. The customer’s words that “a crucial point was to confide in an architect” were very important during our work with the interior.

As a result, each texture and detail found its place in our interior. Lightning played one of the most important roles, focusing attention on the textures of the walls and highlighting important areas and details of space. White color and authentic simplicity became the framework for everything. For contrast we used shades of black color only in details, the warmth was added by a natural wood on the floor.

Architects worked mainly with Ukrainian manufacturers in this work area, with the exception of the chairs in the dining area – Gervasoni from Italy, and some of the light fixtures and decor imported from Bali. Beautiful concrete flooring with traces of timbering came into open after removing the gypsum plasterboard from the ceiling on the ground floor to increase the height first of all, which was 2.60 m. But even with such height, we still decided to make a podium separate the area of sofas from the dining room. We did not have any worries that it could make the ceilings look low, so the architects decided with certainty to paint them white, even though the customer wanted to preserve the existing color of the inter-floor covering.

The wood burning fireplace which was originally in the apartment turned out to be out-of-order, so it was replaced by bio fireplace, but the ideas with the firewood remained. In the living room on the main wall with TV we decided to use white pebble. The tile layer had been pasting it to the wall, one by one, during three weeks. Sofas in the common room and the rest of upholstered furniture were manufactured by Ukrainian company Interia. Sofas fitted into the tick with their seat depth of 1.20 m.

In the kitchen area, you can see a table made of accreted boards of an ash-tree and iron leg. It was manufactured by a workshop of Ivan Chudov. The kitchen is fairly simple. Painted MDF in white. Countertop and worktop of the island were made of a faux stone, mounted by the company Love Stone. On the wall near the kitchen, the mirror was glued, expanding the space. The black wall was painted with chalkboard paint designed for writing with chalk. The ceiling in the kitchen area and the dining room was lowered not only to build in light fixtures and to provide light to the common room but also to hide the ventilation. On the floor, we used tiles by REX of 1700mm x 900mm size.

Originally, there was one long loggia on the ground floor. We divided it into two parts by using a glass partition. From one part of the loggia we made a children’s play area, and the second part we decided to make tea and hookah area which we closed by a glass door. That area appeared to be very cozy.

Sanitary room on the ground floor we wanted to make sort of mind-blowing with the interior of white color in the background. For this purpose, we chose a natural stone cut in imitation of the tiles, (L’Antic Colonial). Behind the rack doors, we installed the household case. One of the most difficult moments that we faced was to find sufficient some coins with a nominal value of 25 kopecks (we had to visit more than one Oschadbank in Kiev to buy them). There is about four thousand hryvnias in the total amount. Our original plan was to make the ladder very light and airy. We welded the metal frame and installed wooden stairs on it. We painted the stairs white and slightly aged them. Hand railings were welded from fabricated drop-forged parts and painted white.

On the first floor, all the doorways were raised up to the ceiling. Wall finishing in the lobby was made with boards which were aged artificially and painted white. Lamps were manufactured by “My Light” according to the drawings of the project authors. In the sanitary rooms, we used large mirrors to expand the rooms visually. Instead of usual towel holders we used a tree branch, which was painted white and hung on the ropes.

The main bedroom – on one of the loggias we made an area with a hammock for having rest, and on the second loggia, we organized area with a dressing table and bureau. Copper rundlets standing near the bed were brought from America, and copper light fixtures were found in a shop in Bali. As the customer desired, we placed a big bed with sleeping place’s size of 2/2 meters. After removing the plaster from the wall, we opened existing bricks and painted them white. The wires to the sockets and switches were laid in the joints between the blocks.

In the sanitary room of the main bedroom, we decided to make a wooden ceiling (from boards of pine spruce). We deliberately refused from the showers and installed bathrooms at the Customer’s request. There is a lamp in the nursery on the wall – MI MI. The idea is that this is a short form of Emily, name of the Customer daughter. The guest bedroom is as white as the rest of the interior. We decided to refuse from the closed walk-in closet and used a the well-known technique, where instead of the hanging rod for the clothes a tree branch was used. The entire interior of this duplex apartment was implemented in eight months. The key point in this interior is the overall harmony. Peace of mind is the topmost idea of this interior – and this state has been a long-run objective of the customer and of the project authors – FORM bureau.
