This unique home takes the essence of open plan design to its logical conclusion, with a fully integrated interior lacking almost any walls.
The design flows from one area to another in a completely open space without regard to traditional boundaries.
This unique home was built in Rivne, Ukraine under project manager Roman Verbishchuk. The team included Lyubov Lazoriv and Peter Buchok, while furniture was overseen by Taras Mazur.
At 112 square meters, the relatively cozy space is made truly expansive by the lack of dividing walls, allowing the floor to sprawl in every direction uninhibited.
The style of the interior is contemporary, yet informed by ethnic Hutsul elements. This makes for a truly remarkable look with idiosyncratic touches that set it apart from its contemporary peers.
The elegant layout makes for plenty of room to showcase the neat and distinctive design elements. From the floors to the ceiling, a roster of timeless materials and stylistic flourishes makes for a highly personalized setting.
Wood and stone elements anchor the design in the past as well as the surrounding natural landscape. The pine forest provides a compelling look, sound, and smell from this home, surrounding it in peaceful tranquility.
We begin our gallery with this computer model overview of the interior, showcasing exactly how complete the open plan design is. With the exception of the bathroom, there are no interior walls.
The kitchen stands out with sleek white cabinetry and stone countertops, a cool color tone in contrast with the rich hardwood flooring all around. At left, the dining table appears in rich wood with a black metal frame.
The minimalist cabinetry and cool stone countertops help downplay the presence of the kitchen within the larger space, but the large island defines it with plentiful space even for a trio of diners.
Across the home in the opposite corner, we find the home office setting. This area is defined simply by a black writing desk and lack of other furnishings. The rich natural wood exposed beams can be seen clearly overhead.
At the center, we see the unique bag-like sectional facing the free standing fireplace. The nearby large windows provide plentiful natural light, while the fireplace provides warmth and heating for the whole house.
From here we can see the interconnected nature of the home clearly. The dining table stands at center, while the kitchen can actually be seen through the open design fireplace to the right. Skylights provide additional natural lighting.
The bedroom is defined by a large bookshelf and free standing screen. With a natural wood bed frame that matches the exposed beams, there’s an unmistakable cohesion at play here.
The home features a large patio for enjoying the outdoors. True to form, the large glass panel doors make this space almost one with the interior.
The bathroom is, understandably, the only singular room within the home. This space sports more skylights as well as a zen garden theme, with natural wood, polished stones, and an abundantly open layout.
