A small apartment, inherited and equipped for seasonal living, looks like a tastefully “fashioned” art object. Original, precisely placed accents create an atmosphere worthy of the historical environment of the city.

A miniature “three-room apartment” is located in a brick house built in the 60s. of the last century in the quiet center. The apartment is located on the top, fourth floor, the windows face the green courtyard, and a lot of light enters the interiors.

For relaxation in the warm season, the spouses needed a living-dining room, a kitchen with a minimum set of household appliances, a separate bedroom, and a spacious bathroom with a shower. They also needed a technical cabinet for the supply ventilation system. In addition, the customer had two wishes: a bio-fireplace and a chaise longue by Le Corbusier.

Redevelopment Rectangular in plan, the apartment with a small step-notch in the entrance area and a miniature balcony with the current living room was divided into three compartments, a pantry, and a separate bathroom, connected by corridors. Fortunately, none of the partitions were load-bearing, so they were removed.

Repair New frame partitions were erected from double drywall, between the sheets of which mineral wool was laid for sound insulation. The walls were covered with wallpaper for painting and painted white. The floor was covered with a parquet board in two tones: dark and slightly lighter; porcelain tiles were used in the hallway and bathroom, under which heating was mounted.

Design A stylistic solution with elements of functionalism and art deco was set by a bio-fireplace and a remake of a couch from a famous architect. The main accent detail of the studio is the original partition between the living room and the corridor/kitchen, with a built-in bio-fireplace. The elegant silhouette of a black chaise lounge resonates with a picturesque panel (a copy of a fragment of an engraving by Frans Maserel), and its active graphic lines are complemented by an unusual spider chandelier.
