Welcome to our gallery featuring the “From the Height of the Concrete Jungle Project,” an interior design by Anton Medvedev.
The Ukrainian designer shaped this gorgeous, minimalist flat in Chicago, IL using a plethora of natural hardwoods, white tones, and subtle use of exposed concrete.
The natural elements and soft, neutral color palette help connect this high rise apartment to the earth. Clean design informed by minimalist style creates an open-plan space that feels immense and airy.
The mixture of modern construction and traditional materials is a uniquely appealing approach, lending a progressive air to the space without coming off as coldly futuristic.
The apartment centers on a large open-plan space including kitchen, dining, and living room, with full height windows appearing all around.
Natural light spills throughout the interior, highlighting the brightly neutral tones of the walls and flooring.
Bathrooms allow the structural concrete to shine. Stripping away the wood and white walls for an even more minimalist look, these rooms retain full functionality and style.
Be sure to note particularly standout details like the cubic barstools and side tables, acres of rich hardwood paneling, and upper level windows connecting many of the disparate interior spaces.
We hope you’ll enjoy this gorgeous project as much as we do!
The kitchen, naturally lit via massive windows all around, centers on a large island with barstool seating space. Sleek white cabinetry defines the look.
Beneath the large white square ceiling detail, holding lighting and HVAC functions over the kitchen, we see the sleek curved-edge cubic barstools in rich natural wood.
The white kitchen island is the epitome of sleek design, with hardware-less cabinetry and a camouflaged cooktop. Beyond, we see the cozy living room space.
The large wood framed sofa stands flanked by a pair of curved-edge cubic tables mimicking the look of the barstools. A single arched floor lamp provides illumination, beneath the upper level interior windows.
Turning toward the open dining room space, we see the large table standing beneath sleek strip lighting, hung via discreet cables.
The table, with thick slab hardwood top and polished metal frame, stands before another set of full-height windows, with a massive black and white art print on wall to the right.
The large window array looms over this wood slat bench, equipped with a pair of trees in built-in planters. This adds a touch of the natural world to the minimalist space.
Viewed from the window area, we see the array of smoked glass doors and upper level windows, visually connecting the rooms surrounding the central open-plan space.
The doors feature a clouded grey appearance, nicely meshing with the white walls and metallic trim on the windows above.
Between rooms we have this immense storage space, with portable shelving courtesy of wheeled metal racks.
The upper level windows connect every space within the home, lending an open, airy sense to every room.
Entering the bathroom, we see an expanse of soft hued concrete from the floor on up. A large curved pedestal tub stands in the corner, across from rich wood dual vanity.
The dual vanity is mounted upon a set of wall-mounted floating wood panels, with a pair of vessel sinks below frameless mirrors.
The focus on minimalism is especially apparent in the bathroom, with simple wall-mounted toiletries and shelving as the only accoutrements.
Rich hardwood paneling continues on the floor and ceiling throughout the hallways.
The upper level windows allow for every high-ceiling space within the home to feel connected and open, including the lengthy hallway.
The master bedroom is an exercise in symmetry, with a large dividing wall doubling as headboard behind the bed. The natural wood frame is mounted on white floor panels.
A pair of sleek white panels on the rich wood dividing wall double as bedside tables.
The bed faces a pair of full height window sets, creating a vastly opened visual space for the master bedroom.
A second bathroom features immense walk-in shower and laundry facilities.
Laundry machines are built into a space flanked by cubbies for storage and another floating vanity, with towel storage below the large square vessel sink.
