Koti Apartment is a minimal apartment located in Kiev, Ukraine, designed by Hi atelier. Koti apartment is 55 square meters of home for a loving couple. The owners of the apartment are people deeply engaged in upcycling, recycling, and eco-friendly movement. Their home is a reflection of who they are. Koti is an echo of nature that embraces the design language of the austere aesthetic of recycled wood, renovated vintage furniture, and calmness dictated by the color scheme of the space. The design of the apartment is an elegantly choreographed interior supported by a minimalist eclectic aesthetic that intertwines with the intimate country motifs. All the materials here are either natural or close to natural or the ones that can be recycled. A self-sufficient color scheme fills all the gaps with the wide range of calm wooden hues and textures. Bright colors pay rare visits with tangerine orange, yellow and pine green now and then. The elements of the space complete each other like air, water, fire, and earth. Koti project re-invents the concept of old vintage furniture that lived its life already. When it’s about the tribute to someone you love and the future that needs a very conscious approach to a now-living, at least one more life can be lived.
