Challenge

At the request of the client, the team made the interior in laconic and noble colors, combining a variety of products from brass and natural wood. The main challenge was to realize all functional areas without neglecting the aesthetics of the interior.

Planning

The YODEZEEN designers have completely redesigned the space of 164 sq.m to expand it and arrange areas that are not separated by walls. Following the drawings, the entire area of ​​the apartment includes a living room connected to a kitchen-dining space, a master bedroom, and two children’s bedrooms.

Concept and Realization

The studio has paid great attention to lines, surfaces, and their harmonious interaction in the apartment. So, one of the key ideas of this interior is a brass wall that goes through several zones of the apartment. It is mounted from the hallway through the kitchen-dining room straight to the living room. The wall set the tone for the overall concept because brass accents can be noticed in all the apartments: cabinet handles, the base of light compositions, taps, and shelves.

As for the functional distribution of space, which designers of the studio thought out, one of the intriguing solutions is the hidden kitchen. When customers finish preparing their food, they can close the sliding doors and easily turn the common area into an exclusive dining area.

The designers made the master bedroom in the same color palette as the living room. On the right side of the cozy Baxter bed is a custom table that the team built right into the wall. The work area to the sleeping area is connected with a long horizontal lamp. As for the master bathroom, the key planning idea of the designers was to highlight the concrete area and separate it from the bedroom with a graphite glass partition.

The children’s bedroom is filled with brighter furnishings than the rest of the more laconic rooms. To make this space functional and prepare for the visits of the eldest daughter, the designers have developed a pull-out sofa as an extra bed, which is an extension of the Bonaldo bed.

Furniture

Among the furniture brands, premium Italian manufacturers dominate here: the Baxter bed in the master bedroom, B&B barstools, and a spherical light composition from Gallotti & Radice in the dining area, corner sofa and leather armchairs by B&B brand in the living room, and else.

Custom

Traditionally for the studio, you can see in this apartment wares according to the team’s drawings. There is a custom marble table in the kitchen and a matching marble cabinet in the living room. If our client wants to read, he or she can find everything needed on an elegant custom rack made of thin rods that seems to grow straight out of the brass wall. The kids’ rooms also have a custom brass shelving unit and a custom pull-out sofa.

Details

This elegant apartment pays tribute to metals such as brass. Each zone contains elements of different sizes: from a whole brass wall to small details like cabinet handles.
