Apartment is located in the historical center of Kyiv in the Golden Gate area. The owner of apartment collects contemporary art and has an art foundation. Walls of the entire apartment are covered with works of young artists from all over the world. Ceiling height in the apartment is 3,2 m and most rooms have irregular shape. During the plaster demolition moldings were found, but they couldn't be restored, so the decision was to make an identical copy. In the living room size of the ceiling moldings are 900x450 mm, together with curtains, wooden window portals and large canvases, the designer achieved the goal of maintaining correct proportions of the room.

Functionally, the apartment is divided into two zones: a public one with
a living room, a kitchen, an office, a guest room and a laundry room; and a master area with large bedroom, a wardrobe and a bathroom. The client is a big fan of vintage furniture. All items were brought from Europe. Kitchen deserves particular attention as it links common and private areas. Kitchen also has access to the office space through adoor made according to the designer's sketches. The pattern of the stained glass window is similar to Art Deco patterns. To achieve this, shape of an arch in the wall was corrected.

The client's bathroom has a large window. To take a shower and have some privacy, you just need to move the mirror from the bath to the window. It is worth noting that the client treated the creation of the design with great trust and it is very difficult to distinguish the completed apartment from the initial drawings.

This interior has classic elements, vintage and minimalist modern furniture and light - all this is the basis of the YD studio style.
