If the apocalypse comes, we calls dibs on Sergey Makhno's bunker
If we're going to live in a dystopia, we might as well make it deluxe, and feature leather accents wherever possible. That seems to be the concept behind architect and designer Sergey Makhno's latest project.
Inspired by worldwide precautions taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19, Makhno expanded on the idea of quarantining in comfort to create an underground bunker that somehow makes lockdown look luxurious. The unique space is roomy enough to house 2-3 families, and somehow lets in natural light from 15 meters above. Plus, Makhno covered all the basis by designing features to comfortably house pets and even allow you to grow your own produce from underground.
This isn't the designer's first dive into challenging projects, either. In 2019 he collaborated on the Yogo Apartment project with a group of fellow architects and designers. The team was tasked with combining three separate radius apartments into a single cohesive unit, and they executed beautifully. The final furnished layout even featured an appearance from one of our fave indoor chairs, the Kent armchair by Ludovica + Roberto Palomba.
