Apartment MM Grunewald - minimalist lighting concept (8)

Apartment MM Grunewald was designed by Berlin-based Bruzkus Batek Architekten.

Description by Bruzkus Batek: This Moscow-based couple’s second home is located on the ground floor of a classical villa in the Grunewald district of Berlin. As part of the new design Bruzkus Batek Architects first pared the spaces down to the essentials by stripping out all decorative surface elements such as stucco, friezes, trim and coffering —also since these were damaged or in pretty bad condition.

The furniture and fittings are positioned like exhibits in front of the sheer white walls. A pale grey concrete floor is combined with soaped ash and nero marquina marble in the kitchen island and the bathroom, as well as for the long bench in the living room. Between the kitchen and the entrance hall stands a “box” containing wardrobes, kitchen cupboards and a mirrored cloakroom.

The clarity of the design is underlined by hiding all ironmongery from sight and by avoiding the use of door handles. Even the fridge door opens simply via gentle pressure – and with the help of an integrated motor. A separating wall divides the kitchen from the dining and living zone with its large dining table and marble-clad fireplace.

The custom-built corean washbasin is mounted on a glossy chrome stand. The walls and built-in cupboards are clad in ash or large format marble slabs.

SoMa Loft in San Francisco by Studio VARA

Offering spectacular Bay Bridge views, this two-level loft was an uninspired white box chopped up into many small rooms. Having worked with the owners on another home in the Carmel Valley, the designers wanted to bring a similar warm, modern and spacious character to this loft that celebrates the view while offering two-bedroom suites for overnight guests.
