Bachelor apartment with minimalism overtones, Russia


Russian architect Angelina Alekseeva has designed The Bachelor Apartment project. Completed in 2012, the luxury apartment can be found in Russia and belongs to a 37-year-old bachelor.

The owner of this property currently works in a business and spends a lot of time travelling. He has lived in Europe for three years and fell in love with European minimalism.

His design brief included that the apartment interior design be spacious with natural materials used throughout.


The architect didn’t want to make the interior into hard core minimalism, but has tried to create an architectural space that meets the customer’s taste and modern trends.

The interior uses a lot of architectural elements, natural wood, concrete, stone, also different textures in space, such as smooth leather, carpets, bed linen.

The colour palette is dominated by black, white and grey colours, plus rigorous, clear lines have been perfectly blended with the rounded shapes of the original furniture and magnificent chandelier in the main room.

The luxury Russian apartment also boasts plenty of storage space by incorporating built-in wardrobes.

Special attention has been placed on the bedroom design, where a combination of stone and other textures, such as soft plush carpets, simply look amazing.

The biggest challenge for Alekseeva was creating laconic minimalism with its own character.

“I would describe this apartment as laconic minimalism”, says Alekseeva. In addition, many complex designs have been developed by the architects’ sketches.
