Nina bought a one-room apartment on Teremki in the Liko-Grad residential complex last year. The new housing corresponded to the main wishes - the right bank, a new building, close to work and the home of elderly parents who need care.
Initially, the apartment had nothing but bare walls and screeds on the floor. The repair took six months, the redevelopment was insignificant (the doorways were moved from the corridor to the room, which allowed to increase the dressing room).
The development of the design concept was entrusted to the workshop Dmytro Aranchii Architects, which works in the direction of parametric architecture, using, along with a creative approach, mathematical calculation and programming.
The space was organized so that it looked modern, uncluttered, but at the same time it contained the necessary number of modules for storing things.

In a bright living room, which also serves as a bedroom, one wall was painted green and decorated with a "computational decor" - a complex pattern was generated by a special algorithm that defined the shape and direction of the branches from the entrance to the room towards the window. A shockproof German laminate, stylized as concrete, was laid on the floor. All cabinet furniture was designed by Dmytro Aranchii Architects in Kiev. Sofa - Ukrainian production, black table - Ikea.
Figures of mammoths on the windowsill - the memory of her husband, who was a model artist and created models for the Zoological Museum in Kiev. A wooden mask was brought from Africa. Numerous books on design and art have remained from the time when Nina wanted to become a fashion designer. Now, after participating in the design of her own housing, the hostess has a new hobby - modern architecture.
The corridor space was visually expanded due to mirrored doors to the entire wall, behind which a dressing room was equipped. Children and granddaughter often come to visit Nina, so many common items are stored in the apartment, including a bicycle. The bathroom is the only place in the apartment with non-designer furniture, a bedside table under the sink.
Kitchen design was approached with the same minimalist approach. Furniture - designed by Dmytro Aranchii Architects. The white walls are balanced with kitchen facades in rich colors. One of the walls is decorated with a parametric tree, created by analogy with what is in the living room. Artemy Lebedev's teapot and pirate-toaster toast are gifts. From the kitchen there is access to a balcony.
