Ukrainian architect Rina Lovko presents a new project ‘Nochka’ – an apartment of 78 square meters flooded with daylight in a typical building complex in Kiev. Limited by a small area, this project involved complex calculations, unusual planning methods in order to maximize the use of space without loading it with unnecessary drawers and dust collectors. Seemingly spacious, this small apartment for a single man features a storage room and all the necessary equipment for a comfortable life. Constructing a multifunctional wall in the living room allowed to install the air conditioning system, bio-fireplace, home cinema and sound equipment, projector, hidden cupboards, and dynamic backlighting altogether in one place. The bathroom space was designed with a particular attention – the bathtub located by the window is soaked in daylight. To expand the space visually the architect used a lot of mirrors in the apartment. For instance, in the L-shaped corridor, a mirror corner reflects the wardrobe and makes the space seem square. The project features only natural materials and tailor-made furniture and kitchen.
