Meet the Dubrovka apartment, a compact, yet coquette home, designed by za bor architects in Russia. The apartment is perceived as a unitary living space, connecting the kitchen, the bedroom and the living room. The space can be divided in rooms when needed, thanks to some sliding partitions, specially designed to offer some privacy. Some of the furniture was custom-made, in spite of the modest budget. We love smart ideas and we appreciate a brilliant mind that shapes them and transforms them into something real. Now, when something can be transformed effortless, that’s what we call smart: the sliding partitions, when expanded, separate the whole bedroom space, enhancing the feeling of privacy.

The apartment features floor-to-ceiling windows, allowing the viewer to enjoy a beautiful view over the city’s skyline. An edgy countertop occupies the central part of the apartment, creating a subtle transition area between the living room and the kitchen. The interior is dominated by a minimalist design line. Despite being small, the apartment feels comfortable, breezy and uncluttered.
