Minsk Duplex Residence
Sometimes the place is artificially designed to resemble what originally it shouldn’t be. If this formulation is too complex for you, follow this post to discover the amazing Minsk Duplex that mimics the industrial loft residence, when in fact it is just a regular house!
Unique Quasi-Loft Residence by Alexander Uglyanitsa
What do we know about loft spaces? It is an upper storey or attic in a building, directly under the roof. Alternatively, a loft apartment refers to large adaptable open space, often converted for residential use (a converted loft) from some other use, often light industrial. But what if someone builds a house and makes it resemble the loft like spaces intentionally?! To make it even more confusing how about the industrialized walls and pipes that go over the walls and serve as decorations? Well, yes that is our case.
Located in capital city of Belarus, Minsk, this residential complex is decorated by a Russian interior deigner, Alexander Uglyanitsa who lives in Minsk. The house is built to resemble loft apartment, but this illusion dissapeas right after you look out the window – there is a level ground lawn, backyard and somekind garden. This is incredible! Originally, in the furnishing of the house were not used materials such as decorative plaster or brick tiling. The brick wall decoration is an actual brick wall made in the process of building, which is not an imitation! As you have noticed, there are many copper furnishings, the pipes, wiring, yet the furniture is tuning in very well with that quasi-industrial interior. By the way, the furniture is mostly Riva by Pininfarina, as mentioned by the designer, the wood that is used is “mostly some old wood from the wetlands”. The flooring is also interesting, uneven boards by Bolefloor creat a special atmosphere adding up to the industrial interior. Don’t you love the color combinations? The copper goes very well with jeweled blue furniture, with patterned pillows and other essential décor details.
