Ivan Pozdnyakov and Pavel Zheleznov, P+Z studio, designed the interior of an apartment of 80 square meters for a young family with two preschool children. The main idea of this project is a light modern space that will not get boring with time.
The apartment, which is located in the residential complex, was originally a “bare” box: with concrete walls and open engineering systems. Here it was necessary to place a common area of the kitchen-living room, as well as two bedrooms with bathrooms, a dressing room, and a lot of storage space. Since housing does not have the status of an apartment, it was necessary to take into account strict regulatory restrictions on the location of the kitchen and bathrooms. Because of this, it was impossible to carry out a global redevelopment – only to change the configuration of the walls of the rooms in order to integrate into them the cabinets, racks, and shelves that customers requested. This decision was dictated by another feature of the premises: large windows – an obvious plus of the apartment – significantly reduced the area of the walls, so necessary for storage places.
