Architects Maxim Kashin have designed an apartment in Moscow called White Cassette, inspired by the experiments of Japanese architects in the 1970s to create modular structures for housing. The interior of the small 42 m2 apartment is designed as a special transformer box that opens according to the functional needs of the residents. The white color was chosen as a symbol of purity, lightness and airiness, creating sensations of tranquility and renewal.
The apartment includes a living room, a kitchen with a dining room, a wardrobe, a separate bedroom with a wardrobe, a bathroom with a shower, a storage area and a laundry room. The design uses the principle of Nakagin capsule construction to transform rooms to suit the immediate needs of the residents while completely concealing other functions that are not relevant to the immediate moment or task.
The kitchen island is one of the main elements of the apartment, constituting itself as a sculptural element composed of three-dimensional shapes that intersect each other. Railing rails in the apartment serve as a functional element, providing a narrow space for storing small items. The bathroom also features an original solution, where a luminous ceiling not only illuminates the space, but also serves as a design element.
