Combing brilliant color, stylish space-saving solutions and a contrasting array of textures, this exquisite apartment in Kiev is definitely one-of-a-kind. The remarkable apartment was conjured up and brought to life by Studio BARABAN +, and it definitely is one of those homes that you either absolutely love or tend to feel is a touch ‘over the top’. Yet what fascinates us is the captivating living area of the apartment that uses a curved wooden wall laced with dazzling LED lighting, an exposed brick wall that surprises you with its presence in this contemporary setting, and a bold art installation that becomes the focal point of the lavish space.
To hide a concrete column in the room, the designers came up with the dark, barrel-shaped addition that sits in the heart of the living room and features a bio-fireplace on one side and a stylish wine storage space on the other! The curved wooden wall moves away from the mundane use of simple, straight lines, while mesmerizing lighting along with dashing pendants in red enliven the setting. With a snazzy kitchen in black and yellow, luxurious dark bedrooms, and relaxing, spa-style bathrooms, there is no lack of opulence inside this 265-square-meter home.
All the utilities, appliances and lighting fixtures inside the apartment can be controlled through the homeowner’s iPhone, turning this into an ergonomic and energy-efficient hub. With sweeping views of the city skyline and Dnieper River in the distance and an inimitable interior, this Kiev apartment is both intriguing and exceptional.
