An inspiring location in the centre of Vienna, that is all Olya Kondratiuk needed to create a unique living concept. This apartment highlights its historical surroundings with an interior that combines a certain formality with a lot of charm.
Ukrainian Olya Kondratiuk is an architect and interior designer and loves to create luxurious, convivial designs. In her spare time, she enjoys creating visualisations, which she has since turned into her hobby. Of course, this hobby comes in handy in her job: she designed the images of this beautiful project in Vienna herself, for example. We are happy to give you a tour of this small but unique apartment in Vienna's historic heart. The home is currently under construction, but the images already give a good idea of the charm of the final result. The main goal was to transform the special atmosphere, historical context, and flexibility of the surroundings into a contemporary home with an elegant touch. Crucial to this were the materials, which evoke a convivial atmosphere. The interior designer chose natural materials such as dark brown wood, combined with copper accents and plasterwork. A striking element is the special pattern of the wooden floor, which perfectly complements the dark green walls.
Unlike many contemporary interiors, the interior architect decided not to use an open ground plan
Wood also returns in the furniture, including in the dining table, the cupboards, and the back wall of the bed. The somewhat worn wood, the dark colours, and the layout of the house are a maximal support to the atmosphere. Interesting choices were made for that layout. Unlike many contemporary interiors, the interior architect decided not to use an open ground plan, but make the rooms rather closed, which perfectly suits the style of this apartment. A number of elements nevertheless ensure sufficient openness. The large windows are one of them, but the fact that the kitchen and living room are on the same axis, so that in one room you still have a view of the other, contributes to a more open effect as well. The glass wall between the bedroom and living room is equally important in this respect. By means of a light curtain, the two spaces can still be separated if desired. The interior designer is already enthusiastically looking forward to the realisation of this design. With a clear concept and thanks to its special location, this house is guaranteed to bring endless pleasure to its residents.
