PORCELANOSA Group Projects: Industrial minimalism in southern Russia

Designed by architect Víctor Usenko, this apartment in the Russian city of Sochi uses Premium collections by Porcelanosa to unify the various rooms under the same concept.


This modern apartment in Sochi (Russia), designed by architect Víctor Usenko, extends the limits of each room with Premium collections by PORCELANOSA Group. Con un interiorismo industrial basado en la escala de grises, maderas y muebles de inspiración nórdica, esta vivienda ha unificado las distintas estancias con el pavimento Soho Acero de Porcelanosa.

Taking inspiration from the shine and contrasts of concrete, the tiles from this collection are used throughout, from the living room to the bathrooms, marrying beautifully with the pearl grey velvet chairs surrounding the wooden dining room table, the centrepiece of the living room - a navy blue sofa - and the backlit vertical garden located at the end of the corridor that breaks with the grey homogeneity of the living-dining room.

A bathroom with a futuristic aesthetic

Echoing a space capsule, the property's master bathroom stands out for its futuristic and refined design. The two raised bowl washbasins are reminiscent of an alter, and the pure white that dominates the area is further enhanced by the NK Smart Line backlit mirrors, Tono taps in chrome finish and Essence-C towel rails. The shower stands opposite, with an open structure delimited by the Lounge shower sprinkler, Essence-C wall-hung toilet and the bidet. All are products from bathroom firm Noken.

The luminosity of each of these pieces contrasts with the timeless and subdued grey that defines the bathroom's flooring, from the Soho Acero collection by Porcelanosa, which provides unity with the rest of the property.

The spectrum of greys is lifted by Caliza Metropolitan wall tiles by Porcelanosa. The soft texture and finish mimics the chromatic turns of the natural stone, dampening the sober character of grey with the decorative wall profiles Pro-Part Black 11 mm by Butech, incorporated at the corner of the ledge.

A room with a Black Sea view

With a king size bed in the centre, the suite style bedroom opens to the exterior with large picture windows and minimalist décor centred on three colours: grey, brown and white.

These neutral tones are warmed up by the ceramic wood - Noa Minnesota Moka and Ice Tanzania Almond, the two collections used for this space.

Interspersed with vertical brown and beige lines, the surface extends over the whole wall, harmoniously meeting the open bathroom, which features Soho Acero flooring and a Krion® Slim bath with Tono taps by Noken. The sintered mineral compact provides surfaces with improved resistance and hygiene thanks to its zero porosity, antibacterial and easy cleaning properties, and low weight.
