Dark Apartment in Kiev maximizes space with reflective surfaces
The architecture firm YoDezeen has created a dark apartment in Kiev to demonstrate how luxurious dark tones can look. Seemingly spacious, the hotel has an open-plan bedroom, a glass shower cabin and picture windows.
Thanks to these design tricks, the main room, which mainly consists of a living room and a small dining area, looks enormous, although the dining area is separated from the large zone with an open shelf.
The high-rise apartment, which is finished with concrete and wood, overlooks the city and a neighboring building. The large windows let in plenty of natural light, but it is absorbed by the sea of gray and black.
The bedroom is particularly bleak with its black stone wall that becomes the focal point of the entire property. A system of industrial lights and some surface lamps help to keep the place lit up a bit. To create a little light reflection, the bathroom wall – opposite the windows – was made of glass.
A small, but space-heavy kitchen seems to be the emerging trend in modern homes. And so the studio decided to leave it in a small corner and leave plenty of space for lounging and life.
