Contemporary Meets Industrial in this Private Home in Kiev, Ukraine

By • May 23, 2017

This home, designed by the Ukrainian Tseh Architectural Group in 2017, encompasses a perfect blend of industrial and contemporary styles.

The exposed brick walls, painted white, along with the black iron light fixtures and staircase railings, however, serve to give it an edgier industrial touch. The exposed wooden beams with iron brackets, the almost sculptural lamp hanging from the slanted ceiling, and the polished concrete floors serve to seal this for us.
