|From the outside, the older Russian housing looks very different than Canadian housing. However, from the outside, the new apartment towers look a lot like what you would find across Canada.|
While we tend to think of a one bedroom apartment as having a large living/dining/kitchen space, and a separate bedroom, this does not appear to be the typical Russian layout, as you will see from the plans below. While I could not get over all the 'wasted space' in the entry hall, and need to see how this is used, I was intrigued by the fact that the living room is often conceived as a flex space that becomes the bedroom in the evening.
Take a look!
|However, look at this plan. It's unlike any one bedroom I have seen. While I like the idea of thinking about flex use, this doesn't look very appealing or functional at all. I have sent them some Vancouver layouts.|
