Home Tour: State-of-the-Art Apartment Design by YODEZEEN
Set in the historic district of Kyiv, on the well-known Instytyska Street in the borough of Lypky, high above on the 21st floor, with a mesmerizing view of the Motherland Monument, one of the highest monuments in Europe, sits the State-of-the-Art Edition apartment design by YODEZEEN.
The Concept of State-of-the-Art Edition
Many styles of the 18th-19th centuries inspire the architecture on Instytutska Street and across Lypky. The result, a monumental classical style with elements of Art Deco and Empire. The perfect look for YODEZEEN’s new apartment project, a single level spread across 252 m² consisting of a combined living and dining area, 2 bedrooms, and 3 bathrooms.
We adhered to the principle: less is more. We created a clean interior, contemporary finishing details, natural materials, and custom furniture. This apartment is a gestalt of architectural directions of the entire historic district.Artem Zverev and Artem Voskoboinyk, Lead project architects, YODEZEEN
Shades of nude with graphite glass partitions, natural stone with brass accents, and custom elements define the exclusive design. Every element creates a unique understanding of modern living. A home perfectly tailored for its owner, a young man of sophisticated taste with his own understanding of aesthetics and a passion for Ukrainian Art.
We love the details. We love when the perception of our project is conveyed through touching the surfaces, materials, comfort of our client in the daylight or night-time, functionality of solutions. Combination of lights, volumes, textures, and finishing elements in the State-of-art Edition project is a confirmation of the studio’s unique style.Artem Zverev
Throughout the apartment, Empire-style molding on the ceiling adds an antique tone to the space, while clean-lined Italian furniture brings modern vibes.
The Entrance & Main Living Area
The entrance of the apartment gives into a spacious area of combined living, dining, and kitchen. Modern meets classic details like the custom-made floor of stone and brass tiles in the entrance define the feel of the apartment instantly upon entering.
Graphite glass partitions in both the guest and master bedrooms divide the space into private areas.
A key element of the apartment design is the incorporation of art by Ukrainian artists and sculptors. Paintings by Viktor Sydorenko and sculptures by Nazar Bilyk complement the interior with the perfect air of authenticity.
