From Discarded Factory to Modern Home: 40sqm of Cheerful Delight in Moscow

When the authorities in the city of Moscow wanted to provide additional housing options for an expanding urban population, they turned to the old ‘Danilovskaya Manufactory’, which once sheltered a bustling industrial hub. The many buildings in the region also offered the perfect chance for designers to showcase their creativity while offering homeowners a chance to own a piece of history and heritage in the form of remodeled loft homes. This particular ‘small wonder’ was designed by the ingenious folk at Au Room for clients who wanted a relaxing second home and hangout in the capital.

Compact living space and kitchen of the industrial apartment in Moscow From Discarded Factory to Modern Home: 40sqm of Cheerful Delight in Moscow

The elegant loft apartment occupies just 40 square meters, and the designers stayed away from using any internal partitions to give the tiny apartment a more spacious look. One of the natural niches in the apartment houses the chic bedroom with a large window next to it, while the small bathroom is the only space that is separated from the living zone using walls. The living room-kitchen area is one large, extended space with a brick wall backdrop, trendy shelves and cabinets that add contemporary gloss, and decor that is all about saving space and multitasking.
