Contemporary interior design is blossoming in the Balkans. This bachelor apartment in Budva, Montenegro, is a fine example of a striking modern residential apartment. Tall ceilings, strong shapes, and open plan spaces are appealing and gracious, allowing this home to be both functional and minimal.

An IT specialist is the owner of this bachelor apartment, who wanted his home to have a minimal aesthetic. The main space in the home is open plan. It stretches from the kitchen and dining room right over to a meditation zone at the far end. The color palette is neutral with whites, grays and sandy tones.

M3 Architectural Group organized the strong shapes into blocks of color. We especially love the feel of open space and curated zones.

The kitchen and dining area feel like they’ve been lifted right out of a designer’s dream. The island creates a solid space, while the chairs and lamps orbit around the area. It creates a balance between heavy and light, soft and dark.

The designers matched tall ceilings with long curtains either side of the cement pillar. The living room section is perfect for entertaining and relaxing, while the space to the rear of the room is for yoga and meditation. But seeing how simply decorated each room is, there is a lot of scope for different activities in each area. What’s more, the homeowner can draw the curtains to create some calm and coziness in the center area of the apartment.

Floor to ceiling windows make the most of the daylight. Meanwhile, the double-sided sofa makes the room open concept, with no fixed direction.

The designers intended the hidden doors and screens above the fireplace to keep things tidy. In addition, they hid the heating, air conditioning and audio systems quietly behind screens and partitions.

The additional room to the back of this living area is mostly used as a space for meditation. However, it was designed, as was much of the house, to be multi functional. The storage allows the homeowner to stash away books and household items whilst still maintaining a sparse and simple environment for the owner.

The master bedroom also contains the only bathroom, but in this single occupancy apartment, that’s okay. The large marble walls were a first choice for the bathroom as the designers were looking to use mostly natural materials and started with a white color palette.

Glass partitions ensure that the room doesn’t get too dark. One can also pull the curtain over for privacy between the bathroom and bedroom.

When we’re thinking about bachelor apartments, we often expect darker colors and moodier atmospheres. It’s therefore refreshing to see the earthy neutral colors here with the darker steel frame windows and strong geometric lines of the cabinets and panels. Overall, it’s a wonderful abode, with plenty of options to re-zone the functionality of the main rooms and a scaled back calmness that puts you instantly at ease.
