Octopus tentacles. Kyiv two-bedroom flat

contemporary apartment interior in kyiv

Contemporary interior design in multistoried building in Kyiv. The flat called octopus tentacles is experimental (in the key of considered decisions) site for using 5-d machine and properties of PVC film. Parametric Rhodonea curve and metaball conception are involved.

GENERAL CONCEPT
Interior design of three-room apartment on Irpinska street in Kyiv was made for a family of customers that consist of parents and a primary school age girl. The volume of openspace combines lounge and kitchen area with a dining room, that are separated by a bar table/ dining peninsula. The hall connects all the rooms of apartment. Thus a small guest bathroom tends to “day” / public area and bathroom – to the masters bedroom and the child`s room. The apartment has 2 wardrobes – male and female: the first – in the end of the corridor, and the second – a more intimate room in a cozy bedroom.

ALGORITHMIC / PARAMETRIC METHODS OF MORPHOGENESIS
The digital component of the project has its roots in metaballs research. So places that need artificial lighting most: sofa sitting area, place above the dining table, center of the kitchen area and the area of putting shoes on in the hallway / lobby, led by the pouf, are taken as control points. These centers have a value that is proportional to its importance, and are connected with each other creating a smooth flow of metaballs.
Bright LED backlight is mounted into metaballic craters.The hall continues the trend of the ceiling, yet on the floor – there is a flow of door panels connections here, which are expanded with the dynamics of floor lines. Vertical visual axis of ceiling and floor metaballs is a plan overlap of the crater and the pattern on the floor in the hallway.

Interior of the Octopus tentacles continues and develops the theme of parametric rhodonea curves that are present in previous projects Apartment For Classmate (Irpinska) and Algorithmic Methods of Architectural Morphogenesis In Irpinska2 rhodonea curves play the role of a differentiator on the rooms: the number of petals of a flower depends on the size of the room.
For this reason, in the small bathroom furniture door handles (carved in the doors) consist of four petals, and in open space dwindle into circles, which can be interpreted as one petal (the first petal) or infinite set.

Artificial stone NURBS surface in the openspace became unprecedented with its complexity for Ukrainian furniture producers. Despite this, the task was seamlessly completed being supplied with a modern and very expensive 5-d machine. As a result – a bar table, which has a smooth outline from the dining room side, gradually reducing the console to zero, converts into a right angle and curved construction for wine storage (with the hollow cutouts for bottles) – from the side of corridor. These two forms flow smoothly into each other demonstrating the benefits of advanced materials and digital modeling / production.
