The owners of this apartment are a family with an adult son, he studies Japan at MGIMO and collects a huge collection of comics.

But we removed the partition between the living room and the corridor and thereby significantly expanded the space of the common area, where guests get immediately from a small hallway, — says Antonina. — The mirrored door at the entrance leads to the dressing room. This solution allows you to dress comfortably both inside and outside, before going outside.» Two bedrooms are designed in the back of the apartment.

In this project, she worked carefully with the color palette. I took classic white as a basis, painting almost all the walls with it. The black lines of the skirting board, the tracks of the lamps, the framing of the doors bring the graphic and contrast characteristic of Japanese conceptualism. The monochrome theme can also be traced in the rhythmic pattern of the floor tiles imitating the terrazzo pattern. At the same time, each zone has its own companion color. For example, in the kitchen, the combination of white with gray-blue passes from the furniture to the walls, from the walls to the curtains and then goes to the balcony, thereby combining the entire volume of the room.

They run horizontally along part of the ceiling of the living room and hallway and vertically «descend» in the son’s room — on the wall and on the facade of the built-in wardrobe. Japanese aesthetics can be traced in floral compositions and symbolic decor. «An architect certainly has the right to his own style. But it’s boring for me to move in too built‑up framework, I still want to play space creation with the customer. Most often they are very interesting people, you want to be inspired by them.
