At the beginning of the 19th century, Kyiv was practically a wooden city. The exception was the numerous stone churches and monasteries. After the contract fairs began to be held in the city every year, the network of railway and water transport was developed, and the number of industrial enterprises increased, the city was gripped by a construction boom. Far-sighted entrepreneurs, realizing that visitors and their families would need housing, invested in five and six-story buildings, which were called "profit houses".
In Kyiv, this type of business was in great demand and supply. Therefore, the most famous architects were invited to design houses and create interiors. The most famous area was called "Kyiv Paris" - it is the modern Frank Square, Gorodetsky, Stanislavsky, Zankovetskaya, Olginskaya streets.
The most spectacular of tenement houses was the house with chimeras. It's interesting how it came about. Vladislav Gorodetsky, an architect, argued with his friends that he could implement the project in the complex landscape conditions of the site - the house was supposed to be built over a cliff where the dried Goat Lake used to be. Gorodetsky implemented the plan by building an apartment building, where his family also lived.
The house with chimeras is known, of course, more because of the decorative elements made of concrete, the author of which is the Italian sculptor Elio Sala. The house had an elevator, two stables, laundries, pantries, a cowshed and wine cellars. Near the house there is an alpine hill.
And, if, of course, the house of Gorodetsky was the most impressive, then another - the Ginzburg house for 11 years became the tallest building in Ukraine. Its height was 32 and a half meters. Why did you make it? In 1941, as a result of an explosion, it was partially destroyed and significantly reduced in size. It was built at the very beginning of the 20th century with the money of construction magnate Lev Ginzburg, designed by architects Georgy Shleifer and Eduard-Ferdinand Bradtman. According to their project, the house was decorated with a record number of balconies - 21. A furniture store was located on the first two floors. On the rest - about 90 apartments. The house also had an elevator. It was decorated with a marble staircase, stucco and painting. The walls were covered with expensive wallpapers. Even then, Kyiv real estate owners knew that in order to rent apartments at a high price, they must look adequate to their price.
Times have passed, but the understandable desire to turn the purchase of an apartment from an expense process into a pleasant income remains. Now many of our customers are turning to us for interior design of an apartment, which they then plan to resell or rent out. Many apartment buyers are interested in buying pre-designed apartments.

The goal to create an apartment interior that would please 90% of people was set before us by a new customer, the owner of an apartment in the Rybalsky residential complex. The total area of the apartment is 72.4 square meters.
Since we did not have the actual occupants of this house in front of our eyes, we examined our projects of the relevant area in order to understand the intended composition of the family and their preferences. Thus, virtual residents of the apartment appeared - a young couple 30+. Both family members work, they like to invite friends to visit, sometimes one of the parents comes to them for a few days and for them, as well as for friendly parties, it is necessary to provide a large corner sofa in the living room.
The total area of the kitchen-living room is 22.2 square meters. Some of our clients prefer to see this space completely open. Others want the kitchen to be separate from the living room. Belik studio designers proposed a compromise solution - a translucent partition that separates different target areas from each other.
The partition is a decorative and functional element on which we installed the TV from the side of the living room.
The design of the kitchen is minimalist. We made the main accents on the wooden top drawers and on the kitchen apron. Porcelanosa porcelain tiles from the Spanish factory Porcelanosa of the Carrara collection were chosen for it, imitating natural white marble.
In order to visually expand the not very wide passage to the bedroom, we suggested using a translucent dressing room door, which allows additional light into the room and makes the space lighter.
The floor of the entrance group is covered with porcelain tiles from the Spanish factory Geotiles of the Vinson collection, which completely recreates the structure of natural wood.
Mirrors and lines are the most popular technique when a designer “plays” with space. Mirrors allow you to expand rooms, they duplicate light sources. Vertical lines are needed to make ceilings visually higher. This is how our designers enlarge apartments without any Harry Potter wands.
We usually suggest installing doors with elements of the same color. In this project, we decided to make the architraves the decor of the corridor and chose a contrasting black color for them, which was supported by skirting boards of the same color. The result is a graphic interior that does not need additional decor.
The area of the bathroom is comfortable - a little more than 5 square meters. However, here, too, our designers could not resist using one of their visual techniques. They offered the same tile for the floor and walls - it visually made the room larger.
Our choice fell on porcelain stoneware from the Spanish factory Rocersa from the Statuario collection. It was also used for facing the bath itself.
We do not agree with those who consider gray to be boring or cold. To begin with, it has warm shades, one of which we chose for the walls of the bedroom called “French Grey”.
The vast area of the bedroom - almost 20 square meters, allowed us to place on it a dressing table for the future owner of the apartment, a spacious reading chair and a wardrobe for bed linen.
We decorated the wall at the head of the bed and opposite it with moldings painted in the main tone of the room. This gave the interior an even more French flair.
For the flooring, we chose the Belgian Quick Step laminate from the Classic collection in light oak color.
The configuration of the bedroom allowed us, in addition to a separate dressing room, to plan the installation of a spacious wardrobe more than half a meter long.
In addition to the main bathroom, the apartment has a guest bathroom with an area of 2.9 square meters. In it, in addition to sanitary equipment, we placed a wardrobe with a built-in washing machine and a storage system for household chemicals.
The floor and walls of the bathroom are covered with Spanish porcelain tiles from the Rocersa factory from the Kea collection.
The farthest wall of the dressing room is a mirror. It allows you to look at yourself in full growth and put the finishing touches. The mirror enlarges the space. Well, in general - it's just beautiful!
The dressing room is the only dark room in the apartment. Contrary to the stereotype that dark makes a space smaller, our designers know it makes it deeper.
A contrasting element in the entire interior of the dressing room was the floor, for which we offered Spanish porcelain stoneware from the TAU Ceramica factory of the Rennes collection, reproducing the structure of light oak.
The elongated shape of the apartment determined its layout. The rooms lined up in an enfilade order on both sides of the corridor connecting the private and other areas of the apartment.
