Among suggestions and art pieces from all over the world, Hayloft is the eclectic refuge that the two architects of the Loft Buro studio in Kyiv have created in the Ukrainian capital. The industrial design of the interior, with exposed pipes, is highlighted by Antrax IT A25 and BD25 tubular radiators.
A hint of Japan, Indonesia and Eurasia, memories of Ukraine and suggestions from Belgium, Netherlands and Italy coexist under the same roof. The project, called Hayloft, is the house that the two Ukrainian architects of the studio Loft Buro - Oleg Volosovsky and Elena Logvynets, husband and wife - built for their family in Kyiv, imagining it as a collection of cultures, colours, materials, antiques and handicrafts, paintings, graffiti, bas-reliefs, sculptures from their travels and memories of Scythians' times. Design furniture and leather finishes, wooden floors with mosaic alternating stone, a majolica traditional Ukrainian fireplace, solid wood benches contrast with the enveloping shell and its technical dimension and function: spotlights and projectors, water channels hang from the ceiling, while the electricity pipes branch off on the wall, with the switch boxes deliberately left visible. The aesthetics of the exposed tubes, which offer a decorative pattern to the interior design, is echoed by Antrax IT A_25 and BD 25 radiators, chosen by the architects in matt anthracite tone and in different vertical configurations for the living, bedroom and bathroom environments. Both made of 100% recyclable carbon steel, the two models, composed by tubular elements with a diameter of 25mm, feature a rhythmical alternation of solids and voids: the A_25 model has been used in its vertical configuration, while BD 25 arranged horizontally, welded on two 35 mm manifolds. Antrax IT designer radiators guarantee significant energy savings, thanks to the reduced water content and low temperature operation, supporting the "green" vocation of the intervention and the great ambition of Oleg and Elena to live in a sustainable, welcoming home, where every detail has been meticulously thought, designed or chosen.
