The Colossus Apartment by Yodezeen Architects
The Colossus Apartment is a modern masculine home located in Kiev, Ukraine, designed in 2021 by Yodezeen Architects.
Our task was to equip a living space in a new residential complex for a young single man, create a calm interior, and rethink a concept of a modern masculine interior.
The apartment of 127 square meters is located on the nineteenth floor of the residential complex “Skyline” of the green Pechersk district. It consists of a master bedroom with an adjoining bathroom, a dressing room, a guest bedroom with a bathroom, and a kitchen combined with a living room.
The design concept of this apartment was in implementing the idea of calm but subtle masculine manifestation inside these walls. We created a cozy and trusting vibe with a warm pastel palette, graphite glass partitions, a lot of custom items made of natural stone, and authentic art objects. Thus, every corner of this apartment does not attract attention with intensity but creates a confident atmosphere in which you want to stay.
The sophisticated calm palette of the interior is entirely equipped with a variety of iconic Italian furniture. The luxurious Flexform corner sofa and B&B armchairs in trendy mustard color, coffee table, and Poliform bar stools are placed in the living room and kitchen area. As for the more private areas, bedrooms, there is Bonaldo bed in the master bedroom, which is known as a bed sculpture due to its volumes and proportions; and Interia bed with an incredibly soft headboard in the guest bedroom.
Artificial lighting should fulfill its practical function and illuminate the necessary areas of the apartment, and the lamps themselves should be an organic addition to the interior. That is why for this interior we used a lamp of an unusual shape from the Flos brand in the guest bedroom, and decorated the other rooms with stylish adjustable ceiling lamps.
