Kai and his wife moved into their own apartment on Petrogradskaya Storona in 2011. The repair took a month and a half. Before the repair the space had been designed for almost half year.

The hosts tried to make a small apartment as functional as possible. Actually the living-room, the kitchen, and the bedroom are located in a single space, but the bed was separated from the rest zone by a movable partition. There is a children’s room in the apartment which is planned to be arranged this year. Ikea furniture, things by modern Finnish designers, and ethnic details brought from trips were used in the interior. The owners didn’t want to clutter up the space: they selected doors without lining, wardrobes in the bedroom were built into niches, kitchen shelves were hidden behind semitransparent doors.
