A lodging on the 24th floor of a new housing estate in the south-east of Moscow was bought by Peter and Anastasia as soon as it was place into service. Previously the couple lived in the identical neighborhood, but the former dwelling started to appear too tiny. In addition to, the architectural studio, which Peter works for, is an 8-minute-walk from right here.
The bargain gave a lot area for the architect’s imagination: panoramic windows, open layout, no excess walls. By the way, the owners had an alternative of obtaining a flat in the very same property 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 total in 5 months, and the move-in was celebrated on the New Year Eve.
As an architect, Peter is quite laconic and prefers utilizing complicated geometrical shapes to excessive décor. His option was white as a standard interior color and oak parquetry as a dominant finishing material (and not only for flooring, but also for facing walls). In addition, wood conceals such unaesthetic particulars as an air-conditioner.
Even though the flat is recorded as two-room, in practice it represents a contemporary mobile studio. Sliding Italian panels by Movi have been found to be also bulky and had to be cut into 4 pieces. They were covered with unique film serving as a mudboard surface. When opened, the panels cannot be noticed: they are concealed in a unique wooden wall.
The original strategy for a kitchen island was a black contrasting bar. But due to absence of the suitable variant in Moscow show rooms, a geometrical building of steel sheets in style of Za Bor studio had to be custom-made.

An additional complex interior building – a white frame, which tends to 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 1st unable to make out why Anastasia wants a walk-in closet, when there is a massive glass closet in the entrance hall, finally got the idea, when the girl, a beginner fashion designer, arranged here a comfy operating zone.
