INT2 Architecture, completed a fascinating two-story home renovation project, located in the village of Lake Malakhovskoye, in the region of Moscow, Russia. The clients wanted all of the rooms in the 2,152 square foot (200 square meters) home to be stylistically different, with both floors of the home being feature-rich. On the basement level, the designers applied a grunge kitsch style through exemplified through the wood beams on the ceiling, red brick walls in the entertainment room/bar area and a metal roll-up door to conceal a spacious storage area. On this level there is also a spacious laundry facility with a cozy nook for sewing and a sauna with full bathroom amenities. On the ground level, you will notice that the style is more modern and minimalist. This floor encompasses a living room, kitchen/dining space, study and powder room. The upper level features an altogether different style from the other floors, offering bright spaces and Scandinavian aesthetics. This floor houses a master bedroom retreat, children’s bedroom with a mezzanine level, guest bedroom with two built-in bunk beds to sleep four, and a bathroom. On this level, the design team came to a challenge of treating varying ceiling heights from the outside walls to the center of the home. To not have disproportionate spaces and lose usable space, the resolution was to create a mezzanine floor in both the children’s and guest rooms, where the sleeping quarters are situated.
We think this home offers a lot of unique design features, welcoming spaces infused with plenty of warmth. What do you think, is there anything about the design of this home that you feel has a wow factor? Please let us know your thoughts in the comments section below!

This renovated apartment in a former school building built in 1893 offers unlimited possibilities of creativity, located in the heart of lively Copenhagen, Denmark. Captivated by the architecture and proportions of the building, it was situated in a quite and peaceful area that was seen as a respite from the new owners daily lives. When they purchased the property, they came upon the dilemma that the school was too big and would be a large burden to repair on their own. They decided to combine family life with social, urging their friends to participate and buy into the building. The building was segregated into 16 individual apartments, with this apartment comprising of 1,506 square feet (140 square meters), with the remaining premises occupied by friends and acquaintances— a novel idea! The homeowners work in the music industry, which is what inspired the design of this home. Music, art and creativity were at the core of this renovation project, which highlights playful spaces, form and color. The homeowners describe their space as an urban oasis, as they sit on balcony overlooking the courtyard tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the main street.
The decoration of the interiors took the new homeowners by storm. They carried out the reform with a great respect for the history of the property, but they also wanted to give the apartment a thoroughly modern character. One clever idea was to add an industrial aesthetic to the space by incorporating a wall of factory glass that separates the living room from the bedroom. Adding this treatment deepened the perspective and lit up both spaces. For the flooring, they selected wide plank oak, with a weathered appearance to give a stylish appeal. Together with the glass wall, the interior has a unique atmosphere that is cozy, yet definitively modern. This unconventional solution gave an interesting perception of space. The spaces are filled in tones of gray, black and white furnishings, with colorful works of art filling the walls.
Here on 1 Kindesign we have featured other home tours of former school buildings that have been transformed. Have a look:
This house reflects the homeowner’s personalities, a creative space full artistic and musical passion. The musical part is reflected in the rich collection of vinyl records that have been accumulated over the years.
The glass between the living room and the bedroom becomes a nice backdrop for pictures, as you can see hanging over the bed, the extraordinary work of Australian painter photorealistic Jeremy Geddes and a collage from young contemporary American artist Shepard Fairey. The artwork is visible even after the translucent curtains are closed, which even gives the bedroom a minimum amount of privacy but allows light to filter through.

In the past we featured the stylish Corvi Wine Cooler by IntoConcrete, now we are delighted to inform you of their latest concrete design, IdéeAl Lamp Series. The light fixtures feature a timeless design that has been flawlessly finished in concrete and glass. The velvety exposed concrete base comes in three stunning shades, blue-gray, dark-gray, and light-gray. These handmade fixtures take their inspiration from turn-of-the-century lanterns and creating stunning art forms. The lamps come in the form of ceiling—Idéeal Ceiling Lamp and table fixtures—Idéeal Table Lamp, that creates an industrial chic aesthetic that would make your home ultra stylish. Created by by visionary concrete designer Clement Terreng, he explains that concrete is an incredible material to work with. “It can be hard like a stone yet appear fragile like porcelain. As we began to work with it, we quickly realized that its potential – to be formed, to be cast – may have no limits but ourselves.” We think these fixtures are super cool and would look great in just about any home decor scheme, we would love to see pictures of them in your home! What do you think, would you use these light fixtures in your home and if so, where would you put them?
These stylish light fixtures are a collaboration with Concrete Home Design and can be purchased on the home lifestyle store of IntoConcrete, with both the Idéeal Ceiling and Table Lamps priced at $500 a piece.
The inspiration for the lamps was very organic in nature. The designer was intrigued by the distinguishing shape of an onion and pared the form with retro 60’s glamour reflected in the set interior of a James Bond movie. The lamps evoke a classic silhouette of old enamel factory light fixture. The fixtures showcase an elegant concrete body affixed to a crystal glass diffuser, creating a modern twist on a classic style.
The designer also wanted a concrete table lamp that would be slender in nature, so he refined the fixture to all that was necessary, testing form and function.
IntoConcrete is an art, design and innovation group that is based in Chicago. Their principle goal is to offer cutting-edge products with quality craftsmanship and modern design in the form of concrete.

The loft also features a spacious living room and stylish kitchen, which have been furnished with the finest blend of modern and vintage pieces, creating an industrial-chic style that is very characteristic of the neighborhood. Upon entrance to the loft, you will notice a spacious library and sitting area with a separate powder room.

This seventies house was transformed by Wow Architects into an industrial style property with modern updates, located in Tamboerskloof, a suburb of Cape Town, South Africa. The home was designed with lots of windows to bring in natural light and take advantage of the sweeping views of Table Mountain. The homeowners had lived briefly in New Delhi, India, so they brought artifacts with them to infuse the entire home with. The architect built up the ground floor to help capture the mountain views, which resulted in a unique house with double-height spaces and staggered floors. The layout of the house creates a relaxing environment, with the kitchen and living room situated downstairs. The middle ‘half’ floor was designed as a relaxation room and the mezzanine floor encompasses a home office. Above this is the master bedroom retreat and a rooftop terrace. By incorporating plenty of glass into the design, it create a feeling of spaciousness and a connection to the outside environment. On the half floor, there are steps that leads down to the swimming pool and the kitchen area opens up to a terrace that borders a forest. Full of light and intriguing details, we hope you enjoy the photo tour of this amazing home. Let us know what your thoughts, do you like this style of home, why or why not?

A bachelor pad was transformed into an elegant industrial space infused with vintage and antique pieces by Antonio Martins Interior Design in Noe Valley, a district of San Francisco, California. The design began with the client purchasing this award winning home that was designed by Zack De Vito Architecture. The designers had worked with their client on past projects, which helped with knowing their taste, style and overall requirements. The new homeowner requested a cutting edge design scheme with a touch of whimsy; it needed to hold up to the architecture while at the same time incorporating a few pieces from his current home. The re-design started with the living room with a silk area rug in in an orange-to-gray hue paired with designer seating that invites conversation and is ideal for entertaining. An over-sized industrial mold was affixed to the wall to add a bright burst of color to the white backdrop. The open concept space also features a stunning dining area delineated by a colorful Missoni area rug. Playful black and white art work hangs on the wall, picked up by the client at an auction, entitled “Dancing Partners” by Robert Longo. The space is furnished with a live edge wood dining table, surrounded by armchairs of natural leather. A set of “85 lamps” chandeliers hangs over the table to create a dramatic effect, designed by Droogand. The result is a six story home that features concrete flooring mixed with warm tones of wood and comfortable furnishings to create a space that is welcoming and extremely relaxing to come home to. What do you think, could you find yourself living here?
Living room furnishings includes Latin Chairs by designer Christian Liagre, Papa Bear chairs and ottomans by Hans Wagner and a clean lined sofa designed by Knoll.
We have featured some other incredible bachelor pads here on 1 Kindesign, so in case you missed them and are looking for some more awesome ideas, have a look: Modern apartment with a sleek sculptural staircase and Unbelievable dream house of an art collector.
Beyond the sliding glass doors of the dining area is a cozy outdoor living room, decorated with a teak sofa, a coffee table comprised of a couple of Chinese “scholar stones”. To add a nice visual impact to the space, the designers added a metal sculpture by Agelio Battle, which ties in beautifully to the other steel elements that are already in the garden.
Accessed by way of a dramatic steel and acrylic staircase up to the sixth floor, we find an impeccably designed master bedroom suite. The wall coverings are Seagrass by Phillip Jeffery, which infuses a much needed warmth into the space. All the furnishings are custom pieces drafted by the interior designer’s and manufactured by Fabian Fine Furniture.

This fabulous duplex loft renovation has been designed by Selldorf Architects. located in Chelsea, a neighborhood in Manhattan, New York City, New York. The loft has a unique past, originally housing a running track and basketball court for a gymnasium. A conversion prior to this renovation had masked most of the structural elements, so the architects worked on uncovering and re-expressing those original details. Drawing out the original industrial features further, casement windows, blackened steel railings and concrete floor tiles were installed. The upper level houses the public spaces, which encompasses a spacious open plan living, dining and kitchen area. The downstairs level features a double height atrium, with a staircase connecting both levels. This level includes a sun-filled family room, master bedroom en-suite, plus two additional bedrooms. White walls, soaring ceilings and tall windows throughout keeps this loft feeling bright, airy and very spacious. The dark flooring contrasts with the white walls, creating a visually impactful design aesthetic. We love this cool loft conversion, its open and spacious…and the colorful sectional in the downstairs family room is great addition. What do you think, could you find yourself living in this loft?
