This 45m2 apartment is a multi-purpose masterpiece

Homes are only getting smaller, but the problem is, our hobbies are only getting more plentiful. We find ourselves with as much “stuff” as ever before, but with less space to put it. Therefore, the key is to get as creative as possible with the space we have, while not compromising on our need to take part in many different hobbies.

Hrystia Koliasa Architecture may have found the answer with their latest project, Menchuks Apartment. Apartment owners Sergii and Olya from Lviv Oblast in Ukraine gave the architects a brief: work with the 45m2 apartment to create a space that caters for all life’s pleasures. They wanted something that promoted and worked with their love for cycling, travel, running, multimedia, cooking, entertaining – friends and privately, and playing computer games. It also needed to be functional for daily life, spacious, and have room for growth in the future – depending on what new hobbies they would come to love along the way.

They used warm whites to create a boundary-less appearance, while also attracting you to the views beyond the windows. It also added the perception of space. The clean white walls would then become the backdrop for a projector screen, catering to their passion for movies, with a bedroom nook adjacent.

It’s the perfect area for entertaining friends and family with space to spare.

The wardrobe also opens from both sides – the entrance and the bedroom, meaning it can house both home essentials and clothing. Even footwear has its own storage space.
