For a bachelor in Kiev, Ukraine, Olga Akulova designed this condo on the 30th floor as an investment property as the young man also lives in Latvia part of the time. To even get to live in the NPL Penthouse part-time, would be a dream because this interior is nothing short of jaw-dropping.
At the top of the client’s wish list was to install a “clever house” system that controlled the temperature, security systems, lighting, and television. Besides that, he wanted an open floor plan and natural materials, like the oak and elm woods that were used on the walls and kitchen.
Floor-to-ceiling windows line one wall of the apartment with views of the Dnieper River. There’s a concrete ceiling and pillars that help separate the spaces. The main living space also doubles as a guest room.
A massive white block divides the main living area from the glass-fronted wardrobe space.
Instead of closing the closet off, they opted to leave it open and making the most of the natural light.
In the master bathroom, which is separated from the bedroom by a sliding glass door, there’s a living green wall above the wooden tub and sink.
The master bedroom becomes private when sliding panels and drapes close. The drapes are controlled through an iPad.
