This apartment is located in historical builidng in the heart of Lviv city. It is situated on the 2th floor and was created for short-term Airbnb rental.

Originally the apartment consisted of a separate kitchen and living room, with small bathroom and a bedroom.

The challenge  was to transform the apartment into a studio for short-term rental that can host up to 4 people.
To create spacious studio, the existing wall between the kithen and living room was removed, creating a seamless open space studio apartment.
Additionally, we expanded the bathroom by utilizing the hallway space previously designed for access to the living room.

In this kitchen design, the warm wood adds a cozy and inviting feel, creating a comfortable atmosphere. The white marble, in contrast, provides a clean and elegant aesthetic, enhancing the overall sense of sophistication. The glass shelves not only serve a functional purpose but also add a touch of transparency and lightness to the space, allowing the beautiful dishware to become a decorative element within the kitchen.
This combination of materials and elements results in a harmonious and visually appealing kitchen environment.

The bedroom was designed with a rich, dark color scheme and wooden panels serving as an elegant backdrop behind the bed.
The main feature of this bedroom is a bathtub positioned in front of the bed, with local lighting and mirrored wall that make the room appear larger and more open. It also reflects light, enhancing the overall brightness of the space which is  especially useful in a room with a dark color scheme.
Additionally, there is a dedicated TV area, as well as a makeup table featuring a mirror with integrated LED lighting.

The shower room features spacious walk-in shower with the “niche”, a recessed shelf built into the wall.
It’s design incorporate large black tiles that replicate the appearance of scratched metal, while the shower wall feature a wood-imitation herringbone pattern.
The floor is made with Pamesa At.Shu tiles, imitating  white marble.
