Small apartment for a large family - interior project and its realization

План 3-комнатной квартиры по ул.Скалецкого в г.Винница

3-room apartment in Skaletsky St., Vinnytsia
Total area: 60, 71 m2
Designer: Marina Gubarets

1 – corridor
2 – kitchen
3 – living-room and parents' bedroom
4 – boy's nursery
5 – girls' nursery
6 – toilet
7 – bathroom

A three-room, but a very small apartment was acquired through youth credit. All room in this apartment little, planning decision is traditionally uncomfortable – a long narrow corridor, at the end of the corridor there is a bathroom and a rest room, a small room to the left and to the right. It seems that an architect tried to keep to the norms of residential area per person - 13,65 m2. But the architect might forgot, that 13,65 m2 is norm of residential place, not general. And the general area of an apartment for a family of five persons can be easily calculated: 13,65 х 5 + 20 m2 for a family = 88,25 m2.

Thus, our customers are missing at least 25 m2.

But one should live, better with some comfort. That is why our customers decided to invite a designer. The task was formulated rather laconic - to get a feeling of comfort, heat and mildness with minimal expenses.

An aquarium with favourite fishes
occupied an honoured place on the shelves.

There are three children in the family, so they decided to provide one rooms (the smallest) to the son, and to settle girls together. No special innovations were developed for the nurseries, but there are still some sparkles there. We suggested to arrange bed curtains for two little princesses, and to draw two suns on ceiling - a personal sun for each girl. A 10-years-old boy was very happy to have clouds on the ceiling and stars that illuminate in darkness. An aquarium with favourite fishes should occupy an honoured place on the shelves. Waves drawn on the walls, colour of sand, iridescent textile - all that brings happiness to a young traveller who likes nature and sea. The parents asked to realize all these decorations in the cheapest ways, because children grow up quickly and the interior might be change soon.

 third room required much more strength and fantasy, as we had to combine several functions there. First of all, it is a bedroom for parents. Than, it is a living room where the whole family will gather each evening. It is not to forget that the family is very hospitable, and guests often visit this home. Guests are usually numerous: two grandmas, two grandpas, two godfathers of each child, each godfather has a wife and children. You see, the family is really "small"...

"The most important is to feel warm, soft and comfortable", - the mistress of the house said. - "And I am dreaming of a fire-place… It's a pity, that the room is so small…"

This room functions both as a living -room and a bedroom for parents. Therefore a large transforming sofa is very important here.

Based on this, we decided not to overload the room with furniture and tried to extend space and to provide maximum of seating places. For clear reasons the customers refused a bed and preferred a transforming corner sofa. Designer suggested that the sofa should face the entrance door, as the sight from the window is not very attractive. But there is a chance to change the opposite wall of room into a blooming garden, which is much more pleasant. The arched openings were made in a false wall of gypsum cardboard. The niches were decorated with landscape prints. Under the central opening we made rounded steps, where one may seat as well. Two low bureaus can be used as benches, especially for children. The bureaus are illuminated from beneath and therefore they look more airy and easy. To the right of the door there is a large mirror – from the floor up to the ceiling. The prints are reflecting in it, and it seems that a magic garden goes on somewhere outside the room. Instead of the door glass there are mirrors as well.

The ceiling is low, but we have assembled a special construction of gypsum board along the perimeter of the room. It should be illuminated from the inside and the ceiling could seem higher. This construction was planned to be decorated with the same wallpaper that was used for panels. Thus, two horizontal lines could somewhat widen the room.

Of course, it's impossible to arrange a real fire-place on the fourth floor. But there will be no problem with an electric one. It can become a perfect supplement to our warm and comfortable interior. DVD-player will occupy a mantelpiece, on the wall above it there will be a LCD TV set.

In this apartment the kitchen in this so narrow, that there was no place for a window - there is only a balcony. Besides, communications are designed very uncomfortably, therefore we had to be hide them into a special gypsum box. We have offered 2 variants of functional division. The first variant suggested to arrange a dining area near the door, to continue a working surface with a folding table that would cross the balcony door. But our clients have chosen a more traditional variant with the working surface along one wall and a dinner table near the opposite one. And idea with bright photo wallpaper pleased them very much. Besides, we drafted good illumination which is very important for the hostess who spends a lot of time in the kitchen. Therefore lamps should appear both above the dinner table and directly above the working surface.

The clients were a little bit restricted in their funds. Therefore, we suggested them a so called economy project that included the variants of functional division, colour decisions, choice of principal material, not detailed sketches and basic technical documents. We performed no designer's supervision after the project realization. No wonder, that the project has undergone substantial changes during the realization.

Below you can see the photos made in this apartment after finishing the repairs:

Design project of the living-room has undergone very few changes during the realization
No hidden illumination was mounted. But a wonderful chandelier with plant motives being characteristic feature of modernish style is a good addition to the landscape print.

The living-room was designed and appeared to be warm and comfortable. Even the picture on the wall matches the general color spectrum.
The corridor now looks like an antechamber - very ceremonial and festive, with red and golden wallpaper
Illumination intensity may be regulated. Ceiling construction of gypsum board breaks the long and narrow chamber, makes its geometry a little bit softer

First we thought to decorate all corridor wall in the same way. But. luckily we have bought insufficient rolls of wallpaper. So, the designer  decided to combine two wallpaper types from the same collection.
Golden rain and strict geometric lines combined with stucco elements makes very pleasant effect. Wooden elements are painted with Pinotex and seem to be made of precious mahogany

Design project of the kitchen has not been changed much as well.  Only the seating benches were preferred to separate chairs
Good illumination which is extremely important for the hostess who spends a lot of time in the kitchen and cooks for five and even more persons
Classic fronts of the kitchen furniture, soft colors of tiles represent the character of this home perfectly!

The boy's room differs a bit from the project. Instead of hand-made painting the wall is decorated with photographic wallpaper with exotic landscape.
The cloud and stars that illuminate in darkness were moved to another corner. And (what a pity!) the workers forgot to paint the ceiling  blue
A large working table, very serious and masculine blinds on the window, restrained sofa design reflect the taste of a young gentleman

The girls' nursery project has undergone the most transformation. It look quite different now.
And idea with photo wallpaper pleased all members of the family so much that they used such decorations in all rooms - a piece of nature for everyone!

Выступающий угол скруглили и колонну, нарисованную на фотообоях, разместили как раз на этот угол. Иллюзия реальности картинки увеличилась еще больше. Потолочный карниз сделан из гипса, повторяет форму угла и выглядит естесственнымпродолжением колонны
The corner was rounded and the column on wallpaper was located directly there. It looks rather real, isn't it?
Instead of bed curtains there appeared shelves that can be used for many useful things, including Barby's house.
Besides, both girls now have individual tables. Elder sister has also a place for her electronic piano. 
Вместо предложенных балдахинов на стене появились полочки для множества нужных вещей, в том числе и для домика Барби

Generally, the family is satisfied with their new home and thanks for our help.

Planning of this apartment may be defined very simple: no feng shui at all. No reconstruction is possible, as the house is made of concrete panels and all walls are bearing structures. So, the only way to change inconvenient space is to reasonably divide the room into functional zones and to decorate it.

Our designer proposed several decisions...

Owners of this apartment in a prestigious newly-erected building are young and successful. They want to have a stylish modern home that would not be like  the  others. Principal demands to the project were as follows: no changes in functional usage of premises, large living-room with minimum furniture, construction of a pantry  for household and 4 bicycles (it's a special pleasure for parents and both daughters to cycle on weekends). But ideal interior is imagined by  the couple quite  differently...
