Today, we are introducing you to the unique, serene designs of architect Rina Lovko. Using natural materials and soft colours, she always tries to bring peace into a home. This project is also a perfect reflection of her vision of architecture.
This beautiful flat is located in a historic house building from 1955 in Kiev. Architect Rina Lovko was bound to preserve and highlight many of the authentic elements. For her, this is the opportunity to combine her love for old and new design. Partly thanks to the thorough detailing of seamless joints and superior materials, the apartment quickly reveals an exceptional concept. It offers beautiful, open spaces and gives a real, luxurious experience. The carefully chosen colour palette consists of renovated parquet, neutral plaster and a kitchen with oak veneer. This creates a simple and uniform whole.
The essence is peace and comfort.
The original layout contained small and dark rooms that are typical of houses built in the 1950s. Architect Rina Lovko's goal was to create lighter, more informal spaces that are suitable for modern family life. The bedroom has a neutral tone and excels in its simplicity - in contrast to the minimalist, clean design of the other spaces, this room is rather warm and lively. The furnishing is based entirely on a relaxed character that is translated into simple surfaces, elementary volumes and empty elements that lend themselves perfectly to storage and display of objects. The latter is stylishly accentuated by the rich impressions of the materials. The essence is peace and comfort. This project was realised for a young couple that was expecting a baby at the time of the renovation. The children's room, designed as a very quiet room, is located next to the living room so that the parents can always keep an eye on their newborn. Lovko carefully chose a mixture of nurturing and relaxing tones. All of this makes this the most ideal and serene family home.
