Constant motion is the name and the underlying principle of this loft in Kiev, Ukraine, created by architect Alex Bykov for a young creative couple. Kitchen here is made the center, the “heart of the home” (as it is very typical for Eastern European dwellings), and the rest of the apartment revolves around it. The functional space is divided into bedroom, lounge, library and entryway, connected to the bathroom/closet area. You can move from one room to another in an uninterrupted circle, since the spaces flow smoothly into each other. Thanks to the ceiling height it was possible to elevate the library. Not only this created a more secluded reading retreat. The podium itself is filled with hidden storage, something any small apartment can use. Check out the photos after the break to get the full tour of this hip and clever home.

The layout of this place is absolute genius. I love how it looks simultaneously spacious and cozy. I would kill for that library!

Very funky apartment and well laid out for a small space, the elevated library would be a great thinking spot.
