Haruki’s Apartment is a stylish lofted studio in in Mariupol, Ukraine. Small but rich in detail, the space originally served as the printing room for Mariupol’s first-ever newspaper.

The apartment’s brickwork and history made it an attractive buy, and the Kharkiv-based studio The Goort revamped the interior to make liveable and super-functional. They added a metal loft, creating space for a bedroom and a closet upstairs.

Below, the common areas are laid out so that the living room is at the forefront and the kitchen is in the corner. Made for entertaining friends, the living room can be easily rearranged with a folding dinner table or a projection screen for movie night. Meanwhile, the compact kitchen features a chalkboard wall and a single unit packed with essentials and utilities. All of the rooms are unified by the simple palette of earthy colors and natural materials such as brick and wood.
