A one-bedroom 38 m2 Moscow apartment with a combined kitchen-living room and a dressing area

A one-bedroom 38 m<sup>2</sup> apartment with an open plan living room and a dressing area

We designed this interior for a couple; their children already live separately. The apartment is small; the clients would like to have a separate bedroom, find some space for a desk, and place the utility unit somewhere not in the bathroom.


Our team created a design project and worked with the interior exactly according to the plan and budget. We also designed and manufactured all the cabinet furniture specifically for this apartment.

Size 38 m2
Type A one-bedroom apartment
Years 2021–2022
Features The larger room is a living room, while the smaller one is a kitchen; there is a small pantry almost at the entrance
Before
After
The living room is in the bigger room
A tiny pantry
We replaced the window unit with swinging doors to expose the kitchen to more light
The closets are combined with the nightstands
The bedroom was separated in such a way for it to have a window. The bed can be accessed through sliding doors
We cut the partition wall between the kitchen and the room: it cannot be moved if there are neighbors downstairs
The pantry has been enlarged at the expense of the hallway. There is now some space for a closet and a utility unit.
The bathroom was enlarged at the expense of the corridor
Кухня в однокомнатной квартире

We worked with a classic one-room apartment of 38 square meters: the kitchen is in a smaller space and the living room is in a larger one. This kind of layout is pretty uncomfortable to live in, because it is almost impossible to provide the inhabitants with a separate bedroom — the bed will inevitably happen to be in the living room. Allocating the large room solely for the bedroom would result in the kitchen becoming the only area for resting and hosting friends. We replanned the apartment in compliance with all legal restrictions, i.e. separated the kitchen-living room and the private bedroom.

We talked more about replanning in this video.

Угловая кухня

There is a complete corner unit in the kitchen: the appliances are built into the cabinets and there is a straight black countertop. Its color is echoed by the built-in profile handles. Column cabinets and top modules reach up to the ceiling; the stove is equipped with a built-in hood hidden behind the facade.

The clients also like to drink coffee, so we made a special retractable shelf for the coffee machine. It's hidden behind the left front; there are outlets inside. The coffee machine is easily accessible, but doesn't take up any countertop space.

In the video, we showed how the kitchen corner module was designed.

We dismantled the windowsill and placed tall swing doors so that the kitchen has more natural light.

We talked about this decision in more detail in the video.

Рабочее место на балконе
Шкаф на балконе

The balcony is insulated, and there is a home office organized within this area. We have designed and manufactured a hanging desk and two cabinets for documents and household items. Besides, there is a place to charge the robot vacuum cleaner under the large cabinet.

Большой шкаф для одежды
Гостиная в однокомнатной квартире

The center of the kitchen-living room is accentuated with a large double-sided wardrobe. There is a shelf niche on the side of the sofa.

We showed how this double-sided wardrobe is designed in the video.

We chose a straight sofa on thin legs to make it visually lighter. The headboard of the sofa and the TV are about two meters apart.

Easy access to the bed is guaranteed with two passageways leading into the bedroom. In addition, we put frosted glass sliding partitions so that the light from the window would go into the living room as well.

Шкаф для одежды в спальне

The bed has a headboard facing the window so that it is possible to hang a TV on the wall. We have made sure that the headboard will not be either overheated by the radiator or cold. We installed wall vents to allow fresh air in, so the windows can be kept closed.


There was an uneven protruding pylon left on the right wall. We decided not to level the entire wall so as not to lose even a centimeter, but to correct the pylon geometry and finish it with porcelain stoneware.

In more detail, we discussed the layout of this bedroom in the video.

Подвесной шкаф для одежды в спальне

Clothes can be stored in hanging cabinets above the bedside tables.

We showed how the cabinet is designed in the video.

Светлая ванная комната

The bathroom has been slightly enlarged at the expense of the hallway. This room is narrow, so we put a shallow cabinet with a worktop washbasin on it. There is also some place for storage and access to utility systems above it.

We talked about our design solutions of this bathroom in the video.

Гардеробная с хозблоком

A small pantry turned into a dressing room with a utility unit. There happened to be no room left for swinging cabinets though, so we kept the entire storage system open.

We showed how this dressing room is designed in the video.

We also shot a video review of this interior, where we talked in detail about all the planning and interior solutions.

We talked more about this project in a video we shot at an early stage of the renovation process. We recreated the future layout in it and checked how comfortable it would be.

This is how we presented the interior upon completion of the design: all objects and materials were chosen by our team. Elaborating all the details at the early stage allowed us to do everything according to the plan we presented to the client.
