INT2architecture creates interior design of “DIY” apartment in St. Petersburg
Studio INT2architecture completed an experimental interior of an apartment in St. Petersburg, within which the team examined what all can be done “DYI”.
“People’s desire to create, design, repair or improve something in their home after the collapse of the USSR and with the appearance in Russia of broad market of services for home repairs and finished furniture has significantly decreased. In the last few years there has been a boom of foreign DIY blogs, magazines and video instructions that tell you how to make original furniture, create decor items from old things and fill your home with comfort, without significant financial investment. In Russia, this movement is only gaining momentum. This project is an experiment the purpose of which was to understand what can be done in the interior with one’s own hands, having zero skills in repairing and manufacturing furniture, with the help of simple tools. The apartment has two functional levels. The first floor is occupied by a kitchen / living room, there is also a small laundry / guest bathroom. On the second floor there is a master bathroom and a spacious bedroom, with the possibility of separating a guest sleeping area or a nursery (in the future),” explains INT2architecture
