MONO architects’ interiors, implemented in a big space, radiate a feeling of spaciousness with the unique rhythm of vertical and horizontal planes, the play of light and shadow, smooth transition from one space to another and the tactile feelings of natural materials.

Shades of Grey Apartment interior continues the unique style of the bureau – created for a man, this space combines the style of asceticism with high functionality. Influenced by minimalistic philosophy along with futurism, Victoria Oskilko focused on ways of approaching the perfect proportion in space, textured materials and light, rather than on developing a set of stylistic stances. But it was not without them entirely.

Shades of Grey Apartment has been designed using a natural palette of materials: stone and glass all in black white and grey colours. These bring both warmth and intimacy to living space. With the interior walls being mainly grey, the surprise of encountering the only black element – the stone fireplace is intriguing. This change prepares the guest for discovering a hidden kitchen – a place to purely sit and nourish yourself, without distraction.

“All men’s miseries derive from not being able to sit a quiet room alone”, – as Blaise Pascal once said. That is why MONO put a special effort while creating a master bedroom – which happen to be without any detail’s disturbance but single foggy art piece near the table and exercise bike. A glass sliding door leads to a wardrobe and bathroom designed with pure architectural lines – square mirror and perfectly oval bath.

As in the previous projects, MONO put a lot of emphasis on collaboration with designers and brands that are known for unique projects with a balanced and local approach. For bespoke kitchen and wardrobes, designers worked entirely with Ukrainian furniture manufacturers, creating user-oriented storage systems. For upholstery, space is furnished with Vitra cozy armchair and Poliform sofa.

They also took care of the safety by equipping most of the space with anti-mud surfaces. What seems to be highly aesthetic solutions also have vital functions for a modern person.
