Design solution:
Apartment space is divided into 6 areas: 1.Hall, 2.Kitchen, 3.Living room, 4.Home office, 5.Bathroom, 6.Bedroom The key design element is the two-level volume: in the lower level it combines a wardrobe, closet, bathroom and a built-in kitchen, and in the upper level it represents bedroom space. This volume also forms the kitchen, bathroom and home office space, separating them from the living room.

In the living room we have a system of multi-purpose boxes which can be used as storage, stools or coffee tables. The system of boxes allows you to modify the space for different needs: a lounge, a dining table (for 12 people), two beds, or an open space for a dance party or other activity.

On the outside wall of the building, overlooking the street, there is a low-wind turbine. Environmentally-friendly and working even in light wind, the turbine delivers a portion of the apartment’s energy needs.
