A lodging on the 24th floor of a new housing estate in the south-east of Moscow was bought by Peter and Anastasia as quickly as it was place into support. Previously the couple lived in the exact same community, but the former dwelling started to seem to be also modest. In addition to, the architectural studio, which Peter works for, is an 8-minute-walk from right here.
The bargain gave considerably area for the architect’s imagination: panoramic windows, open layout, no extra walls. By the way, the owners had an option of receiving a flat in the very same home with a view of Moscow city core, but the couple gave preference to industrial landscape and dense targeted traffic of the Third Ring Road.
Decoration was comprehensive in 5 months, and the move-in was celebrated on the New 12 months Eve.
As an architect, Peter is very laconic and prefers using complicated geometrical shapes to excessive décor. His selection was white as a simple interior color and oak parquetry as a dominant finishing materials (and not only for flooring, but also for dealing with walls). In addition, wood conceals such unaesthetic details as an air-conditioner.
Although the flat is recorded as 2-room, in practice it represents a contemporary mobile studio. Sliding Italian panels by Movi had been identified to be as well bulky and had to be reduce into 4 pieces. They had been covered with particular movie serving as a mudboard surface. When opened, the panels cannot be noticed: they are concealed in a particular wooden wall.
The original prepare for a kitchen island was a black contrasting bar. But due to absence of the suitable variant in Moscow display rooms, a geometrical construction of steel sheets in type of Za Bor studio had to be custom-manufactured.

Another challenging interior building – a white frame, which helps make the mirror invisible from the bed, – is a skew reply to the kitchen island. Bed by Interluebke.
Contours of a rabbit and giraffe are kawaii alter egos of the owners, hand-made of typical black cable.
Peter, who was at very first unable to make out why Anastasia wants a stroll-in closet, when there is a massive glass closet in the entrance hall, lastly got the thought, when the lady, a novice fashion designer, arranged right here a cozy doing work zone.
