The panoramic view of the city of Kiev is the key factor in the project for a penthouse on the 31st floor. The large glass walls also create a sense of continuity with the world outside.

 

The rugged gray of the sturdy, cold buildings is reprised in this open space by the floor, but above all by the ceiling and the pillars in exposed concrete. The modernity of the structure has been matched with natural materials like wood for the furnishings.

 

The island kitchen is part of the Natural Skin series by Minacciolo, adding warmth and materic appeal to the room. It is made with triple-layered thermo-treated wood, with a worktop in galvanized steel featuring a sink, an induction range and a modern vanishing exhaust hood. The whole composition is organized to make traditional but timeless forms intertwine with high technology and extreme functional quality.
