Odessa-based Studio Makes the Most of Every Square Inch

9J studio apartment is situated 0,2 miles from the beach in Odessa, Ukraine. This elegant minimalist yet effective apartment was designed by an architect and interior designer Artem Trigubchak.

“The apartment features a tiny area and only two windows on the one side. The task was to create a functional studio apartment that includes a kitchen, a living room, a bedroom as well as a plenty of storage. Creating the interior, all attention was focused on the convenient organization of space. The most illuminated part includes a kitchen united with a living space. The bedroom is separated from the living room by a wooden two-sided furniture element which is equipped with kitchen stuff and bookshelves on the one side and a storage system on the other. In the less illuminated part, one can find also a water closet and a hall equipped with a storage system. The pieces of furniture such as a blue lacquered dining table, marble and granite coffee tables, a double-colored mirror were specially designed for this project,” says Artem Trigubchak
