How can you create a place that fits not only the personality of the owner, but also his profession? This highly modern footballer’s apartment was envisioned by interior design studio ARS-IDEA in the center of Lviv, a city in western Ukraine. By adapting all the details of the owner’s lifestyle into a one-of-a-kind design scheme, a cozy and functional crib was developed:.”While working on this project we had to change the planning of the apartment from standard two bedroom to an open plan studio by combining living room with the kitchen and making two small closets. We decided to make some contrasts by using different materials and textures such as raw concrete on the ceiling“, explained the architects.
The idea of this apartment was to make as much free space without walls as possible. In the bedroom, the designers placed an open-space room with the bath in the middle. It is here that the inhabitants can lay down in the bath and watch TV, which can be turned to the bedroom side by an effortless move. The numbers on the chair covers in the kitchen were created according to the numbers on the owner’s and his friends’ football shirts. [Photos courtesy of Arsen Kostyshyn & Kate Lutsuk]
