Arrange Warm Evenings by The Fire Place

In the main room, an open-plan entrance hallway opens up to a living room with a plush sofa and a black wood-burning fireplace, an island combined with a dining table and a well-equipped modern kitchen. Chalet-Artpartner-Architects-Mariya-Chmut-Surfaces-ReporterThis is an ideal place for organizing warm evenings and meeting friends by the fireplace.

Double-Height Ceiling

The design team was very lucky with the height of the ceilings in the living room and especially with the shape of the ceiling and windows.

Chalet-Artpartner-Architects-Mariya-Chmut-Surfaces-ReporterThey tried to use this advantage and organized the space in accordance with the original data in the form of intersecting vertical lines and simple hypertrophied forms.

Unique Lighting in the Living Area

As for lighting, there are background, accent, and fill sources. A real decoration of the living room is a pendant chandelier in the form of 4 luminous rings, which creates an exciting feeling against the background of a monochrome combination of walls and furniture.


Further, they used a glossy panel behind the sofa, which reflects natural light from the windows and thus makes the initially elongated shape of the room more spacious.

In the kitchen, they used a rough-cut texture that maximizes the naturalness of the wood. As for the shape of the kitchen, the design team abandoned hanging curbstones as they wanted the living room to have an open inner side and so that adjacent rooms could be seen from it: stairs, hall, 2nd floor.


Captivating Large Ceiling-to-Floor Window in the Bedroom

In the design of the bedroom, we started from the surrounding landscape and the shape of the room.

Chalet-Artpartner-Architects-Mariya-Chmut-Surfaces-ReporterSince this room has a large ceiling-to-floor window overlooking the forest, we have tried to use natural earthy colors as well as accent green combined with natural matte textures.
