Apartment in the residential complex Life Kutuzovsky
The apartment of the customers in the Life Kutuzovsky residential complex was chosen for the optimal location of the residential quarter for convenient access to Kutuzovsky Prospekt and Mozhaiskoe Highway, as well as for the landscaped embankment right next to the house and stunning views from the windows. The owners of the apartment are a married couple with a 3–year-old daughter and a small dog, there is also an adult son who lives separately and will periodically come with an overnight stay.
Design project 3-room. apartments of 111.4 sq.m.
The customers have very creative parents, the customer's father was an artist, so the family has a lot of family heirlooms in the form of paintings and a piano, which they managed to place in the interior. Spouses have very different daily routines. He gets up early and leaves for work, she is a housewife, does scrapbooking and can get carried away with her occupation until late. Therefore, it was necessary to create a convenient zoning of the space and a thoughtful functional interior. In addition, customers have opposite taste preferences and views, but both like modern style with elements of minimalism in beautiful pastel combinations.
The concept of the layout turned out to be "mobile", since the apartment is considered as a potential housing for the future family of the son. The spacious entrance hall and corridor allowed to increase the space of the central room in the apartment. The customers had a wish – a large kitchen-dining room combined with a living room - the family often gathers together. The owner likes to work in the living room and, if necessary, can "close" with the help of a sliding partition. The entrance to the study was located from the living room for the convenience of the hostess. The office has two functions – a workspace for the spouse's scrapbooking and a bedroom for the grandmother, who will come to visit.
Another wish of the customers is to enlarge the children's room, since it had insignificant dimensions. During the redevelopment, we managed to achieve this. For the convenience of spouses living in different schedules, the bathrooms were divided into female and male, the female was located at the entrance, the male – next to the bedroom. The master bedroom is small in size: it accommodates a bed, bedside tables and a cot, and the storage of clothes is taken out to a small adjacent dressing room. The apartment has a separate laundry room with a small window - the "air" in the room is very important for the hostess.

Entrance hall and corridor
At the entrance, it was decided to lay Keramoteka tiles with a geometric gray pattern on the floor, this solution facilitates the process of cleaning the floor from dirt from the street. The rest of the space and the corridor are laid with a Finex engineering board.
