Apartment Monday, June 26th 2017.
The materials, colors and light were expertly manipulated by the architects at Wei Yi International Design. The studio believes that there’s more to today’s remodels and renovations than just design. Every project has a more profound meaning, speaking of deep connections, transformations and aspects of life. The design practice shifted interest from furniture design to art and this helped define their style in a way that makes each space stand out. The apartment has a total floor area of 165 square meters and was renovated in 2014. It now boosts a man cave décor defined by masculine shades of gray and by various rugged textures and finishes. In fact, gray is the main color used throughout the apartment, with variations and the occasional white and black addition.
Every region and every country has its own particularities when it comes to pretty much everything. Interior design is no exception. If you visit Romania, for example, you’ll notice that the old houses and apartments have this well-defined layout where the kitchen is a separate room the same as the living space, bedroom and service areas. In some cases you can still catch a glimpse at what traditional interior design looks like.
The black kitchen island acts as a space divider, separating the functions and serving a double purpose. On one hand, the island haas a built-in sink and cooktop which make a cooking accessory. On the other hand, it has a bar-height table extension which lets it be used in combination with bar stools. This gives it a casual appeal, suitable for an entertainment zone. The social and private spaces are separated by a hallway. There’s a really interesting and smooth transition between these two zones. You can see how the brick walls end to make room for metal and glass partitions and how they gradually turn into smooth painted walls.
The Vidpusk story began in Romania ( a small country in Europe ) back in 2017 when founder and CEO Alouria Mackenzie launched a blog that would go on to become one of the most popular and successful online magazines to date focusing on interior design and architecture. Currently clocking up an impressive 3.8+ million unique monthly visitors, the site provides daily inspiration and advice to those who are seeking to improve, organise and style their homes. With an archive of 7000+ posts featuring over 90,000+ images of great interior products and architectural projects it is no wonder that Vidpusk has one of the most engaged online communities on the net.
