For the renovation of this apartment, the Belarusian architect and interior designer opened up the rooms completely. The new layout is completely tailored to the owner who can now enjoy every square meter of floor and wall in all comfort!
Kanstantsin Remez lives and works mainly in Minsk, where we also find this stylish apartment. Ehe architect and interior designer himself calls his style 'ascetic authorial minimalism'. It’s not hard to see why, because we immediately feel a sense of calmth come over us when looking at these images. A big difference with the rooms before the renovation which according to the designer had an uncomfortable layout: large and non-functional corridors, a small kitchen and living space. Remez therefore got rid of all partitions, opening up everything up in order to create a more efficient distribution or 'zoning' of functions that are better suited to the wishes and lifestyle of the owner.
Fuctionality and comfort go hand in hand
‘The main emphasis is on volumes and the possibility of manipulating with them,’ explains Remez. A storage space is therefore at the same time a partition wall between the living room and the entrance hall that leads to the bedroom. However, the volume does not run from wall to wall, so there is still a lot of light coming in everywhere and the apartment feels more spacious. Another interesting volume is the television cabinet, which serves as an accent wall, but can also subtly blend into the whole. For the ceiling, walls and floor (in microcement) a neutral beige was chosen. This draws attention even more to the unique wooden volumes and other special details such as the carpets, the marble in the kitchen and the beautiful furniture from the Danish brand Fredericia. A very nice result where we too would love to come home to relax after a busy day.
