Dark Apartment in Kiev Maximizes Space With Reflective Surfaces
Architectural design studio YoDezeen created a dark apartment in Kiev as if to demonstrate how luxurious dark tones can look. Seemingly spacious, the place features an open plan bedroom, glass partitioned shower, and panoramic windows.
Thanks to these design tricks, the main room, that consists of mainly living room and a small dining area, looks enormous, even though the eating zone is separated from the big zone with an open shelving.
Finished with concrete and wood, the skyscraper apartment overlooks the city and a neighbouring building. The big windows allow plenty of daylight in, but it is absorbed by the sea of grey and black.
The bedroom is especially gloomy with its black stone feature wall that becomes a focus of the entire area. A system of industrial lights and some area lamps help keep the place somewhat illuminated. To create a bit of light reflection, the bathroom wall – opposite the windows – was made out of glass.
A small but storage-heavy kitchen seems to be the emerging trend in modern apartments. And so the studio decided to keep it to a small corner, leaving plenty of room for lounging and living.
