Laconic yet luxurious, this minimalist home design features high-end twists on wide open space. Visualised by Igor Sirotov, the city loft features oversized modern furniture pieces that lay down big statements within a pared back layout. Colourful atmospheric light transforms the plain white decor in an instant, without complicating or cluttering the space. Raw concrete elements add an industrial element to the modern loft interior, to offset the cleanliness of colour and line. The bedroom and its open plan ensuite bathroom are housed within an extravagant glass encased volume, which lets the city panorama flow uninterrupted. Only the WC and a butler’s pantry are tucked away from plain view, resulting in one spectacular multifunctional living experience.
