57 drawers by Alexey Rozenberg
Today we would like to present you with a very cozy and practical concept of an apartment that was designed by the Russian interior designer Alexey Rozenberg for a family with two small children.
The front of the apartment was designed as a flowing space so that all rooms have a visual connection with each other. The owner’s bedroom is a distinct zone in the overall concept and was connected to the whole by wide doors and panoramic windows. The bed is placed on a dais and hidden by a brick wall. This brick wall makes the bed invisible from every angle in the living room. In this way, the living room appears more spacious, but the bedroom retains its intimacy. The protruding volumes in the living area reinforce the spatial connection between bedroom and living room.
The living area with upholstered armchairs and TV is again raised on a wooden podium and is a bit away from the window. The daylight ensures a soft cosiness, at the same time – a pleasant view of the outside. The living room was separated from the hall by bookshelves.
The kitchen is of course right next to the living room and dining area. A bar counter on wheels can be used as a table or as an additional work surface or serving table. The dining table designed by the designer has interesting atypical proportions – the table top is narrow, but long. Such a table visually extends the dining area and is the link between the kitchen and living room.
The children have their own play area away from the window. The walls are partly made of glass – so natural daylight can enter the room. Both children’s rooms are designed similarly and each room consists of wooden elements: a bed on a wooden podium, a relaxation zone with an upholstered sofa and a work area full of light with a desk. The work and relaxation zones are separated by glass walls, which makes the room appear larger and brings more daylight into the ambience. But every child can afford their own private area thanks to curtains.
A number of different textures are intertwined in the interior: dark bricks, light oak, elements made of black metal, ceramic tiles and coarse plaster. The glass partitions were used throughout the apartment. The play area was decorated with cork panels. All of these materials create a harmonious overall impression. You are probably wondering about the name of this project. Quite simply – a total of 57 drawers are hidden under all podiums, so the young residents of this house do not need any storage furniture. Great idea isn’t it?
