TWO-ROOM APARTMENT OR TWO BEDROOM APARTMENT?

The article is devoted to the apartments of an open planning structure. It provides
a comparative assessment of the functional and aesthetic features of a typical two-room
apartment with traditional planning and open-plan apartments with two bedrooms. Planning
schemes for open-plan apartments are proposed by the authors of the article based on the study
of analogues in the domestic and foreign practice of design and construction. Open-plan apartments
are competitive and promising. The following advantages of such apartments are noted:
maximum provision of family members with personal space – sleeping rooms, minimization of
unused spaces – corridors, organization of general leisure and family communication in a joint
rather large kitchen-living room. The composition and optimal floor space of a living cell are
evaluated in terms of ergonomics and sanitary standards. It was detected a connection between
the planning organization of the space and its aesthetic qualities.
