Ukrainian architect Sergey Makhno designed this penthouse in Kiev for him and his family. In this penthouse he combined Japanese aesthetics with traditional Ukrainian design such as the clay walls. I love the combination of the rustic elements in the home such as the exposed beams on the ceiling and the stair banistar with the industrial features. The clay walls, wooden elements and plants almost make you think this is a serene country home while in reality it’s in the middle of (the mainly concrete city) Kiev. You can see a lot of thought (and love) went into this home, it’s absolutely stunning design.
