Apartment is situated in a pre-revolutionary building in the centre of Moscow, Russia.
The “shell” of the apartment is designed as a reference to French neoclassicism – white walls, high ceilings, tall windows, parquet, plaster cornices and moldings… White walls highlight proportions of the apartment and purity of the architectural form.
Project Name: Interior AM
Total area (m²) 56
Location: Moscow, Russia
These classical elements are the background for the “antibody” – minimalist black box, in which all the technical spaces are grouped (WC, boiler, kitchen, wardrobe).
The Box is a compositional center around which the main functional areas are situated: kitchen with four meter long kitchen island – bar; lounge area with leather lounge chairs, bio fireplace and projector; and bedroom with a small workplace.
Modern interior elements contrast in color, material and style with the classical ones, simultaneously complementing each other. Thus, the objects acquire individuality, creating a wholesome architectural space.
