David’s Apartment in Yerevan, Armenia by Storaket Architectural Studio

 
June 13th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Storaket Architectural Studio

The apartment is located in the central part of Yerevan and has a beautiful view. The style of the apartment is a mix of French classic and contemporary design. The apartment has an expansive and open space kitchen, living and dining areas, two bedrooms, and a special reading room linked to the main bedroom. Access to living room and bedrooms is through two hallways which also expand towards the main and guest bathroom. The living area is divided from the kitchen by a large stone covered island which is one of the leading design elements of the apartment. The eye-catching mix of two extremely different styles is visible everywhere in the apartment. One of the main contrasts is the moldings that frame the ceiling which houses high tech and exposed lighting, audio and video systems. The windows around the dining area imitate French balconies. There is also one balcony near the living area. The apartment is full of light and the general color is a slightly off-white shade for the walls which creates a nice background for the furniture to stand out and gives an opportunity to change the apartment mood by adding or removing furniture elements.
