About Svitlo Apartment
Introducing Svitlo Apartment
In central Kyiv, the Svitlo Apartment rises as a masterpiece where art meets functionality. This unique space, set among high-rises, unites the energies of home and community under a dance of light and shadow.
A Harmonious Fusion of Spaces
We transformed three separate units into a singular, harmonious system while preserving critical structural elements. The result is Svitlo—13 rooms spanning three distinct zones: the owner’s suite with work and relaxation areas, a dedicated children’s space, and a guest area complete with amenities.
The Art of Light in Design
Our design revolves around light art techniques. We’ve crafted surfaces that interact with light, creating captivating, subtle patterns. Svitlo’s living room, an expansive space for dining and relaxation, offers panoramic city views. Unique features like the OCHI lamp and CHRUST lamps, born from raku technique, illuminate the space with warmth.
The BUBALUS armchair merges form with function, offering a touch of artful illusion. The DIDO sculptures stand guard, exuding an aura of modern, handmade ceramics.
In the study, functional furniture contrasts with MAKHNO Product’s art pieces. The master bedroom plays with light through WIND tiles and KVITKA lamps, turning illumination into art. We leave the homeowner’s bathroom as a secret haven, revealing the essence of living art in Svitlo Apartment.
While we’ve shared many of Svitlo’s secrets, some mysteries should remain untouched, preserving the intimate allure of the night.
