Mini apartment "Violet Crystal"
I am inspired by nature, I draw ideas from the observations of the world around them. The apartment has a total of 30 sq.m. and for me it was important to create a comfortable living space for a small family. The sleeping area is made as the cell in bee ulii and sofa - table has a dual function. The sleeping area is separated by fabric curtains that can push or squeeze through
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
A one room apartment design to create an utmost open and unusual space.
The small area of the studio was expanded by replanning to attach the open view balcony to the overall floor area.
The key interior design solution consists in streamlined shapes of the walls and in the functional application of inclinations and bends. The flowing lines of the walls, the decorative elements and the furniture have made the apartment very comfortable for permanent residence in spite of its small size.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The visual delimiting of the single studio apartment was achieved by the ceiling and floor patterns. The bedroom area is defined clearly: the built in closet separates it from the entry hall, and the transformable curtain from the living room area. The unusual design allows for opening, being shifted aside or shifted apart in the middle to provide a passageway. The bathroom has an inner window to fill the small space with natural light.

The ceiling is also made of a metal framing and thinner plasterboard. Wall finishing is by painting.
Furniture in the form of a couch-table is manufactured as seating furniture with a stiff frame.
The ceiling lighting as to its structure is linked to parametric research and its installation assumes using ground acrylic glass and LED illumination. Parquet strips were chosen for the floor, with the couch zone being set off with carpet flooring.

The task was to create the most comfortable surroundings in a compact space, having isolated the sleeping zone and the bathroom.
Research was based on analyzing compact sustainment solutions. Having analyzed solutions for small-size rooms, it was found that streamlined forms help create maximum comfort in small spaces.
For a human, round corners are more safe than acute ones. Besides, smooth lines have a beneficial effect on a person's health and emotional state.
My motto: "Streamlined forms make for life, planes and acute angles present obstacles".
The small area of the studio was expanded by replanning to attach the open-view balcony to the overall floor area. This solution increased the living space to the utmost and filled it substantially with light.
