The apartment is located inside one of the old soviet block buildings in the Sokolniki neighborhood of Moscow. Unused for years, it had fallen into disrepair. The task was obvious: to revive the old apartment and convert it into a cozy studio to serve as housing unit once again. During the site survey, several authentic pieces of soviet era wooden furniture were found. It became part of the plan, to restore them and ensure the renovated apartment would make a suitable setting for these now classical pieces to fit in. With services and storage spaces located in the back of the unit, the front was conceived as a single big space, with sliding glass partitions, dividing or connecting the kitchen-dining area with a living-working area. The former being disguised as a small office with a foldable classic wooden sofa bed that serves as a daybed during sunny hours.
