Batek Architects designed this private apartment per the brief by the client to create a “Masculine, clean, comfortable” atmosphere. The focal point of the living room is the fireplace, with the white columncontrasting against the black furnace.

From the architect: Alongside is a light grey, cement finished integrated bench, for use as seating, or to place ornamental items. Architectural and structural elements in the living room and kitchen are in different shades of grey, giving a subtle play of varying tones designed to frame the owner’s classic modernist furniture and artworks perfectly.
There are two built in wardrobes, with smooth, linear, integrated hand grips, one in the kitchen in dark grey, and one in the bedroom, colored vintage pink. These form a minimalist storage solution, enough for the whole apartment.
From the bedroom, a passage to the bathroom is in a warm pastel shade that softens the terrazzo and the filigree black glass surrounds of the bathroom. Lighting throughout the home is designed by PSLab, with pendant lights and wall sconces, underscoring the masculine flavor.
