About Mazanka Apartment
Mazanka: A Blend of Tradition and Modernity
Mazanka Apartment, perched in a Kyiv skyscraper, boasts breathtaking views of the Dnipro river. Interestingly, “Mazanka” in Ukrainian signifies a quaint village home made of wood, clay, and reeds. Its name, derived from “mazaty,” translates to coating with clay, reflecting the apartment’s connection to ancient construction methods.
Eco-Friendly Design Meets Personal Vision
A young woman, envisioning a home as her sanctuary, chose our studio for this project. She sought a blend of eco-friendly materials and cutting-edge technology. Accordingly, we crafted an interior that seamlessly integrates these elements, highlighting the space’s unique character.
Creating a Personalized Living Space
Our goal extended beyond meeting the client’s requirements. We aimed to create a space that would resonate deeply with her. This involved tailoring the design to reflect not only the eco-conscious ethos but also a sense of personal attachment and comfort.
