RiverS by Emil Dervish: Minimalist apartment in Kiev, Ukraine
Designed by architect Emil Dervish, this minimalist apartment entitled RiverS is located in Kiev, Ukraine. Measuring 64 sqm, this urban dwelling manages to pack visual impact with handpicked design and brings out a sense of amplitude to a compact dwelling.
As the architect told 10 Stunning Homes: “RiverS is a project unambiguously minimalist, especially as celebration of geometry and for its penchant for simple compositions throughout all ambients.”
The heart of the house is a mix of living room, kitchen and study, all perfectly aligned and fitted with the necessary furniture and purposes.
Despite its open-space feel, the apartment wasn’t equipped with hidden furniture, all elements being obvious and on sight.
An interesting visual trick and solution was applied throughout the apartment, as the architect emphasized: “The lighting project positions an echo-like repetition of nimble lamps on the ceiling, resulting in an unexpected element for embellishment and function. It managed to imprint personality, without overwhelming or breaking visual harmony.”
“This is minimalism as a double threat: smart solutions and remarkable aesthetics. To achieve amplitude and a striking interior design is a rare beast to witness nowadays”, the architect concluded.
