COORDINATION-berlin completes luxurious loft in almaty, kazakhstan

Add to MyArchiExpo favorites

Thirty floors above almaty, kazakhstan in the prestigious esentai tower, is a private residence designed by COORDINATION-berlin.

The ‘ritz’ apartment is a quiet place built for sensory and intellectual stimulation as well as a relaxing refuge.

the project brief gave COORDINATION-berlin almost free reign over design. the setting was to be used purely for leisure, intended for weekends or short stays by the owners. any practical limitations associated with residential projects were able to be mostly cast aside, giving the design team a one-of-a-kind opportunity. with full trust and support by the client, the team worked freely to realize a visionary, site-specific interior.

initially intended as a three-bedroom apartment, the project quickly turned into a luxurious one-bedroom loft-style space. the apartment was unfurnished, but equipped with every possible necessity to enable a unique, multi-sensory living experience. COORDINATION-berlin handled complete spatial planning, as well as interior architecture and engineering–including the design and selection of all surfaces, lights, furniture elements, kitchen units, loose & bespoke furniture pieces, accessories, design editions, and a personally curated art selection.

every detail was carefully considered for a holistic, harmonious experience. the l-shaped floor plan was organized with a clear spatial hierarchy, placing social and private spaces in separate areas. the apartment reveals 270° views over the city as well as the distant tian shan mountain range.

use of landscape related structures and natural metaphors influenced the floor plan, helping spatial rhythms and atmosphere. areas are emphasized within by sloping and shifting floors that lead to physical sensations uncommon in the home. the experience is a completely changed sensation of space, which elegantly flows without interruption.
