Two Apartments Merge into a Modern Apartment for a Family in Ukraine

Minimal Mine is a renovation project headed by Maxim Doschinsky and Pavel Voitov of Ukrainian interior design firm ZOOI. The designers merged two apartments – a one-bedroom and a three-bedroom – to create a comfortable, yet modern home for a couple with children, who longed for a minimalist space that was packed with function.

The kitchen, dining room, and living room were combined to form a larger, open space but with an oversized sofa creating some delineation. A cozy palette of neutrals fills the public spaces with hints of color speckled throughout.

The designers’ sketches were translated into these decorative wall panels that mimic rough stone. A bright blue armchair that was custom made for this project pops in front of the charcoal gray panels.

The master bedroom is essentially four spaces in one – a bedroom, bathroom, closet, and office. A glass partition is used to provide separation between the bed and the workspace with a sliding curtain to offer additional privacy.

A large glass window allows for a view into the shower

The children’s rooms are where the project really comes alive with sunny yellow accents, rock climbing walls, and chalkboards.
