The Monghites moved to a two-bedroom apartment in the “Fusion Park” housing estate just a month ago, on completing a one-year long redecoration. Their previous loft apartment was ideal for living as a couple, but after the birth of a son arose the need for some other dwelling, so the choice was grounded on the baby’s needs.
During the search the opinions split: Sergei wanted a flat with a story, and Anna was eager to live in a space free of the spirit of former hosts. A flat in a constructivist-style high-rise, designed by an architect named Plotkin, captured their attention at once: located in a silent neighborhood, with a well-developed infrastructure and a large park, ideal for those having kids, it has put an end to all the disputes.
Having consulted with Gregory Marov, an architect, the hosts quickly decided on the design: the key concept was to leave the space as light and open as possible, while separating the kid’s room and the bedroom from the lounge, which was specially designed for receiving guests. It was decided to polish a concrete wall in the living-room, install a bracket and a directed light source, and to arrange a periodically updated home photo & picture gallery, most of which are gifts of friends.
A matt self-levelling floor, which originally raised many doubts due to its potential coldness, in practice turned out very comfort. The decision to install a bath right in the bedroom and to make a wall in the bathroom unit transparent was hotel-inspired; in the daily life it proved to be quite inconvenient, but there are no regrets, since it’s still pleasing to the eye.
