Typical one bedroom apartment in a post war building in Kiev, Ukraine was renovated by Olga Akulova. The goal was through a new arrangement of the zones to achieve maximum comfort and functionality. And a result is home in pastel tones clear lines, modern materials and textures.
Work started in 2013. We have got typical one bedroom flat in the postwar house, with two balconies from opposite sides of the build. One of them oriented to an inner yard, we used its space for extension of a guest and a kitchen area. It was important to create an effective use of space, we used every millimeter. We conceived a floor plan with one bedroom, a bathroom and dressing room. The rest was one big open space. The total reconstruction of the flat took a year.
