The Application Context
The Colossus Apartment project is a space for a young man who enjoys an everyday view of Kyiv's historic downtown from the height of the 19th floor. The apartment is located in the residential complex “Skyline” of the green Pechersk district, which is rapidly being built up now. The entire area of the apartment, 127 square meters, is occupied by a master bedroom with an adjoining bathroom, a dressing room, a guest bedroom with a bathroom and a kitchen combined with a living room.
The Request for Commissioning
The project was designed and executed by Yodezeen Studio: its main task was to create a calm interior where a young man could spend his leisure before setting new goals. The whole apartment is made in a nude palette with accents on natural materials. Wood, stone, and leather are the perfect end to a busy day.
To emphasize the objective of this apartment being made for a man, the design team chose massive art objects in the form of a statue to be set in the living room and a sculpture in the master bedroom. The bronze statue by Yegor Zigura called “Colossus Holds Up the World” inspired the studio to name this space after him, and the sculpture “Space Around” by another famous Ukrainian creator Nazar Bilyk inclines to a newcomer that one will harmoniously fit into the created interior since a person is the center of a space.
The sophisticated calm palette of the interior is entirely equipped with a variety of iconic Italian furniture: Flexform, Poliform, Flos and Ekinex.
Ekinex wall mount products have been chosen from 71 Series ‘NF version (no frame) in Fenix NTM finish black and white. Pushbuttons with thermostat and socket point for 2-fold plate to control temperature, light and shades in all the apartment.
