A stylish, functional apartment by Rosu & Ciocodeica
Located in the heart of Bucharest, Romania, this stylish and functional apartment was designed by studio Rosu & Ciocodeica and offers a panoramic view towards the urban landscape. The architects’ main goal for this interior design project was to create a bright, functional space, suitable for a flexible and dynamic lifestyle.
As the architects told 10 Stunning Homes: “The family's way of life is similar to the context, being communicative, flexible and dynamic. These aspects were the main elements that lead to the definition of the new functional and spatial scheme: the opening of the daytime spaces, but without giving up the possibility of separating them if needed, and the separation of the night time area, that offers a high level of intimacy for each family member.”
The dining room is the “hot-spot” of this functional apartment, from which all other rooms are accessed and observable.
“The end result integrates the kitchen and the office to the existing generous living room as an intersection of two rectangular volumes, with the dining area, right in the center of this intersection,” said the architects.
“Thus, functions merge into a common image, where wood, both horizontally and vertically disposed, covering storage area, provides fluidity and unity of the space, creating a neutral background at the same time.”
Dark gray metal elements, contrasting and cold, become highlights of the interior, but also divide different areas in the apartment.
When closed, the metallic and glass wall separates a multifunctional room from the rest of the home. This room can be used either as an office or as guest bedroom.
Another important element is the almost invisible wardrobe placed in the hallway, covered in mirrors on three sides and appearing as a very thin black panel towards the living room.
“The night area follows the same color palette of the whole interior, that is the main frame of the overall design and offers a neutral background for the small interventions and personal objects, that come to personalize each private space,” concluded the architects.
