This project, by balbek bureau, was completed on a small budget, with tons of love and undefeatable sense of humor. balbek bureau is an architectural interior design bureau based in Kyiv, Ukraine. For 12 years’ experience in designing bespoke commercial, corporate and residential facilities, they have been building their community of socially-sustainable spaces. This apartment is only 40 sq. m. When working on modest budgets the designers encourage scaling back to a bare minimum, without which a comfortable existence would be impossible. In this case, for instance, they left the walls unchanged, just cleaned and thoroughly dusted them. 

The entire budget load was directed at replacing and preparing those areas where the owner spends most of his time. They installed wide double-glazed units instead of old windows in the office. The kitchen cabinets, although tiny, were made of stainless steel to high quality and performance standards, based on a modern bar model. Credits to the photographer Andrey Bezuglov for these amazing photos!!!
