The client’s idea was to keep the main features unchanged preserving the atmosphere of the epoch, and to make the original facilities more durable. At the same time, his demand was to include there all the essential technical elements of modern domestic appliances making the living more comfortable.

The key challenge was to select the furniture and illumination units combining the highest quality by eminent brands, and both highly-efficient and compact.

The color range was composed of light hue to make the rooms visually more spacious. Kitchen is one the most demanded furniture set in an apartment and it was equipped with technically progressive model by Siematic for its light facades and convenient appliances arrangement designed in neo-classic style.
