Complete harmony was present not only in the interior but also in the general preferences of the client and the YODEZEEN studio. Even at the concept development stage, the team made sure that they were on the same wavelength and that the new project would be created exactly as intended. How could it be otherwise, if the team began cooperation with a young man who not only owns a large space in the city center but also works as a culturologist and highly appreciates architectural ensembles.

The new project is located in the center of Kyiv on Hrushevsky Street, which is popularly called the government one. In addition to the main administrative buildings, the Verkhovna Rada and the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, it also houses several operating ministries and committees. Also, there is a green zone, the Mariinsky Park, with its palace on the territory — a favorite place for walks and excursions for all residents and guests of the capital. The building, where the apartment is located, is an example of one of the first high-rise buildings developed in the area of the Mariinsky ensemble. It was designed by the former chief architect of Kyiv and honored architect of Ukraine, Sergey Babushkin, who can be confidently called the person responsible for the appearance of the modern metropolis.
The overall concept of the space was developed taking into account the principles of combining elements and textures, which together would create an optical harmony and perfection. Anyone can notice, or rather not notice, not a single visible seam or negligent matching of materials in this architectural interior. Stone, wood, and metal are connected, smoothly bending, or even look as if they were a single whole organism. This interior has many straight lines that smoothly flow into wave-like shapes, and the absence of sharp corners is additionally emphasized by the rounded shape of the furniture.
