The idea was to make the kind of art gallery in this corridor, with a natural oak parquet, white walls and large photos in frames as “exhibits”.

The space is conveniently divided into a public area, which includes an entrance hall, a large […]

Our first project: Ranch-inspired home in Kyiv, Ukraine

Today is a very special and exciting day for us as we finally can share our first completed design project with you. We were lucky to get a chance to design such a home, as well as to work with the owner who was so open to our ideas. The private house is located in Kyiv, Ukraine, and is reminiscent of American ranch with a U-shaped plan and inner garden. The design concept was to create easy and light interior spaces using natural materials and calm neutral color scheme. Wooden beams, vintage touches, ethnic decor are highlights of this modern ranch.
