Striking Graphite Penthouse in Kiev, Ukraine

Called Graphite Penthouse, this striking apartment envisioned by Denis Rakaev is situated in Kiev, the capital and the largest city of Ukraine, in the north central part of the country on the Dnieper River. Contemporary and stylish, the Graphite Penthouse offers the owners a fantastic living space which is full of light for visual perception and a high level of comfort. “Strict purism is diluted with a warm ethno style. Combining simple, rectilinear forms with decorative motifs and curvilinear ethnic, a unique effect of detachment from the bustle of the big city is created.”, explained the designer.

Light and dark apartment designs displaying a modern life style

Modern and stylish, these two apartment designs absolutely suit for the ones who love a modern life style. The first apartment displays a sophisticated mix of blacks, whites and shades of grey, which offers the owners a zen-like modern ambiance. Stepping into the living room, we are attracted by an imposing marble half wall, where an LCD television is mounted. This creative design element helps to create a comfortable office nook that is separate from the living area, but not closed off from the home. Meanwhile, the second apartment showcases the flipside of monochromatic design, focusing instead on darker design with black, slate, and dark grays in much of the apartment.
