Designed by Yunakov Architecture Construction, the Kiev Residence is located in a residential area of Kiev, Ukraine. The architects collaborated with the owner to create an amazing individual achitecturial style that meets its inhabitants' needs and preferences.
This eco-friendly residential construction uses locally resourced materials and energy-saving technologies. The home was built almost entirely using Ukrainian materials - wood, stone and brick - and custom furnished with a series of items designed by the architect and carefully chosen lighting systems.
Kiev Residence was designed for a young family with three children under the age of 7. The residence had to meet all the requirements for a set of dynamic personalities: Each of the three children were given the possibility of expressing their personal style by choosing the colors, lights and details for their own rooms, even though the kids' rooms were the same in design.
The Kiev Residence is 6,450 sq-ft in size and houses a charming collection of spaces - 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a study, a theater room, kitchen, dining room, a double-height hall with a fireplace, and a four-car garage.
The Casa Balint is located in Valencia, Spain, and was born from Fran Silvestre Arquitectos' designs. The two-story home is focused on an open plan living space at the center, where the kitchen, patio and staircase all conjoin. Check it out in the gallery below along with a video. Read more
