In a town in Belarus, not far from Minsk, stands this apartment for a young family designed by Studio Nordes. The idea behind the design of the apartment was that it had to be timeless. During the renovations they managed to restore the original features of the building, such as the marble fireplace and stucco ornamentation and by removing the walls they created one large living space that is still clearly divided in three areas: a living room, dining room and kitchen. The apartment is decorated with a mixture of modern pieces from (f.e.) Tom Dixon and Lindsey Adelman and classic midcentury pieces from Charles Eames and Gio Ponti. Counterpart to the vintage pieces in the living room is the modern black kitchen that makes sure you can’t just call this a vintage apartment. It’s an excellent example of how well vintage and modern design go together and it sure is a timeless, elegant and modern apartment.
