People’s desire to create, design, repair or improve something in their home after the collapse of the USSR and with the appearance in Russia of a broad market of services for home repairs and finished furniture has significantly decreased. In the last few years there has been a boom of foreign DIY blogs, magazines and video instructions that tell you how to make original furniture, create decor items from old things and fill your home with comfort, without significant financial investment. In Russia, this movement is only gaining momentum.

KAS Apartment is an experiment the purpose of which was to understand what can be done in the interior with one’s own hands, having zero skills in repairing and manufacturing furniture, with the help of simple tools.

Townhouse was bought without finishing, wiring or plumbing: only bare walls, concrete ceilings and interior partitions. Wiring and plumbing was carried out by the professionals. Metal cabinets, safety shields, shelves, stairs and a ladder were welded and painted in a workshop of a friendly auto repair shop nearby for a nominal fee. All the rest was done at the site independently: plastering and painting of the walls, cleaning and varnishing of the concrete ceiling, laying and painting of the floor, assembling of the under-the-ceiling loft bed, as well as furniture, lamps and décor production.

Casa Sao Paulo by Searle Puga Arquitectos

Dwelling implies movement and stillness. In this house, we wanted to give the same hierarchy to both the places of passage and those of permanence, arranged around or through different patios and gardens.
