Berlin-based Annabell Kutucu‘s portfolio of work includes the design and decoration of some of Europe’s most sought-after boutique hotels, as well as a selection of impressive private residences. Her latest undertaking, No Ordinary Apartment, is a three hundred square metre designer loft in Vienna’s lively Sixth District.
Conceptualised by the designer as a calming retreat, the apartment offers an expansive open-plan layout that’s ideal for guests to enjoy together. An eye-catching black kitchen with bright white trims sets the tone for the rest of the spaces, with custom-made interiors that feature a contrast between light and dark hues throughout. Breaking up the white walls and ceilings, sleek black track lights and streamline pendants provide ample lighting to the living areas while maintaining a clear, uninterrupted vision of the rest of the loft. As well as that, metal and timber open shelving has been chosen as a way to eliminate bulk and showcase collected items.
An understated palette has been employed throughout, with the beautiful tactile concrete floor stealing the show. Its fluid grain and imperfections are in keeping with Kutucu’s recognisable aesthetic and are amplified by natural woven rugs and modern, comfortable furniture alongside a curated collection of vintage finds. Despite a rich selection of materials, the loft feels bright due to impressive windows that bathe the living areas and bedroom in sunlight. No Ordinary Apartment by Annabell Kutucu is a celebration of handmade craftsmanship and sleek, modern design that results in a truly custom living space.
