This Apartment’s Owner Asked Designers To Create A “Cozy Open Space”
2B.group designed this apartment in Odessa, Ukraine, to be a cozy, yet open space for their client.
The designer’s description
Design project of the apartment has been developed at the end of 2011. After that we have been working on its realization avoiding bringing any changes into its original planning and design.
The owner of the apartment requested to create cozy open space for herself and for hosting guests. The architects planned the apartment using minimum doors or walls and at the same time suggesting effective solutions for all apartment zones, which in this object included living room, kitchen, bedroom, master and guest bathrooms.
This apartment does not have any halls. Even transit from bedroom to master bathroom leads through a spacious wardrobe. Planning enabled all functional areas to transform from one to another at the same time allowing privacy. When a guest stays in one area he only sees what is functionally justified.
The authors of the project tried to keep the most of air of the open space. For that they moved library shelves to a window wall keeping all others free from any objects.
