The eclectic minimalist interior of this 135 square meter apartment has a dramatic dark colour scheme, designed and visualised by ZOOI Interior studio. Based in Kiev, the design was created for a German-born American businessman who wished to showcase the plus points of his historic home. Loft-living style elements would also be introduced to the interior whilst attaining a modern cosy feel. After considering the replanning options, the owner decided with designers Maxim Doschinsky and Pavelo Voytov that the kitchen, living room and corridor would combine in an open plan living space with the new kitchen being only a small part of the footprint. There would also be a master bed, guest room, bathroom and shower room.

A heated towel rail makes good use of an empty wall column between the shower enclosure and a nook for the bathtub. Each of the bathing options have been situated to capitalise on the windows in the room. | 21 |.
The guest bedroom is home to another brickwork wall, this time painted black and struck through with white wall shelves. Grey furniture fills the room: A small grey sofa matches the grey bed, and a grey area rug covers most of the wood floor. Tan curtains trim the grey bedroom with a lighter note that matches the timber flooring. A large painting is propped on the floor, evoking a casual loft living style. | 23 |.
Moving into the main bathroom, a double sink bathroom vanity stretches out across a black marble wall. Two stylish vanity mirrors have a shelf attached at the base to hold a few essential toiletries. | 19 |.
By day, the home workspace is in perfect proximity to a picture window for natural light. The black gloss desk reflects the daylight and matches with a comfortable monochrome desk chair. The positioning of the desk points it toward the tv at the foot of the bed. | 15 |.
The master bedroom has a green and grey decor scheme, with much of its colour coming from a dark green painted wall that is textured by brickwork; perimeter lighting accentuates the character of the original wall. Indoor plants add further lush green touches to the room. | 12 |.
An integrated oven interrupts the pink kitchen cabinets. A black open shelving unit spans the adjacent wall space. The kitchen worktops form a U-shaped kitchen arrangement that includes a gas hob and a sink that is smoothly integrated into the counter. | 7 |.
The peninsula kitchen bench is used as a casual eating area. Industrial style lighting dangles from a bar above it, strung along its length. Although the kitchen area is compact and simplified, the functionality of the space has not been compromised | 8 |.
The entrance corridor, which leads into the open plan living room, has been given a warm and spacious look by implementing a series of light wooden panels over the walls and wood planks on the floor. Two narrow mirrors on either side of the internal doorway help to brighten the area too. | 9 |.
The three large dining room pendant lights are Normann Copenhagen Bell pendants. The different coloured light shades make for an eclectic feel, as does the mix-and-match dining chair selection – however, by sticking to the same silhouette it has been possible to maintain the uncomplicated minimalist message too. | 5 |.
Black painted wall panelling, exposed brick, and dark grey soft furnishings join together to make a sophisticated eclectic living room with a minimalist vibe. Cool floor lamps throw light over the compilation of textures, and at orange accent cushions and wall art. | 1 |.
The position of the fireplace puts it between the lounge area and the kitchen diner in the open plan space. The peach-pink kitchen melds with the colour of the exposed brickwork along the window wall. | 4 |.
