Apartment in the Renome residential complex
The apartment on the top floor of the premium Renome residential complex on Novoslobodskaya was chosen by the customers for the stunning view from the panoramic windows and the ideal location in the historical center of Moscow.
The owners of the apartment are a successful middle-aged married couple whose adult children no longer live with them, but may occasionally come to visit. This project is not the first for customers in their lives, and they have a good idea of the process of designing and implementing an interior project. Working with various bureaus and contractors, they brought out a list of requirements for the design studio that took over their apartment. First of all, this is transparency of financial and contractual relations, strict adherence to the TOR and willingness to take into account all the details important for homeowners in the project. Also, one of the key points was strict adherence to the rules of feng Shui teaching, for which a separate consultant was even involved in the project. The result is a stylish, individual interior that does not fit into the framework of a certain style, but is ideally suited to customers.
The planning solution of the apartment is maintained within the strict framework of the Feng Shui teachings. The entrance hall is located in the southern sector of the apartment. Adjacent to it is a compact dressing room for outerwear and shoes. Due to the initial elongation of the apartment, the corridor could not be avoided: in its left part there is a guest and private area, and the right part leads to a common kitchen-living room, which occupied the eastern and northeastern sectors of the apartment. Between the living room and the dressing room there was a place for a laundry-pantry.
The master unit includes a large bedroom, a dressing room and a bathroom. The layout of the bedroom is standard: a large bed, bedside tables, chest of drawers. We managed to beat the monolithic podium in front of the ribbon window, turning it into a soft recreation area. The bathroom can be accessed through a spacious walk-in closet. The master bathroom has a large area, it managed to accommodate a bath, shower and a spacious washbasin. The guest bedroom and bathroom are more modest in size.
The kitchen is separated from the living room by a wall on which the TV is placed, and a sliding partition. The set is as functional as possible for daily cooking, and at the same time all the appliances are arranged in strict accordance with Feng Shui, in particular the zones of fire (stove) and water (sink) are as far apart as possible. There was also a place in the kitchen for a breakfast table with a view of the city. The living area accommodates a large number of guests. The center of the layout is a round dining table on an axis with a corridor. The built-in bio-fireplace is located to the left of the sofa. An important place is also occupied by a cantilevered staircase leading up to the exploited roof-terrace.
Entrance hall and corridor
The hallway turned out to be compact - designers and customers decided to give more space for bathrooms and organize a spacious laundry room, sacrificing the area of the hall. On the floor in front of the entrance is a granite Aparici Beyond, imitating onyx. In the corridor there is an engineering board in the shade of slightly bleached oak Finex Floors. The upper part of the walls is painted in a neutral light gray color, and the lower part is finished with MDF wall panels in matte enamel with patina. This solution, in addition to the aesthetic component, is very ergonomic and wear-resistant, which is ideal for a walk-through area. The doors of the Dorian factory made of solid alder in matt enamel repeat the shade of the wall panels. It is also planned to hang paintings in the corridor, which will be finally selected live in the gallery. The light in the style of American classics supports the overall mood of the room.
The kitchen is the most laconic room in the apartment. According to Feng shui, the following shades should be used in kitchen interiors: green, yellow, beige, gray, brown, lemon, olive, gray, white (shades of the elements of the soil). The walls are painted in a calm shade of gray, as in the entire common area, the border with the ceiling is marked by a plaster cornice with brass inserts. All the metal in the apartment is designed in the same shade of brass and bronze, which was the principal wish of the customer. This technique gives integrity to the appearance of the entire apartment, the premises of which are designed in different colors in accordance with the teachings of Feng Shui. The kitchen set has a delicate olive shade. Marble countertop from the Ligron factory, with the possibility of integrating an invisible hob and sink. The set is made at the carpentry production studio according to sketches and drawings of designers. The equipment is arranged in accordance with the rules of Feng shui: fire objects (stove, oven) and also water objects (PMM, sink) are as far apart as possible. On the floor there is Atlas Concorde porcelain stoneware with a metal texture. Track light in shades of brass, Centrsvet.
The living room is designed in shades similar to those of the kitchen, only colder. The active color spot is a spacious emerald sofa, over which it is planned to hang paintings. He is echoed by the recliner chair, BoConcept. The bio-fireplace is located to the left of the sofa: it conditionally delimits the corridor and living room area. In front of it there is a staircase to the terrace. The staircase is cantilevered, all load-bearing protection elements are in the wall between the stairwell and the adjacent bathroom. Visually, it is very light: flying steps made of marble with illumination, risers made of tempered glass and a figured brass fence. The wall where the TV is hanging is highlighted by Loymina wallpaper, the pattern on which is continued by the pattern of the stained glass sliding partition. Like the staircase, it is made to order under the strict control of the studio designers. Important attention is paid to the textile design of the room: curtains and pillows complement the color scheme of the room.
The bathroom of the owners
The bathroom of the owners is designed in a floral mood and beige-green color scheme. According to feng Shui, the floor in this room should be green, so it will be lined with India Green marble, as well as the side of the built-in bathtub. The walls in the wet zone are lined with large-format ceramic granite Fondavelle with a floral pattern. The bath and shower area are separated from the main bathroom space by a sliding partition made of blue glass in a brass frame. The main area of the bathroom walls is painted with a moisture-resistant mint-colored paint with a brass stripe. Custom-made furniture according to studio sketches made of MDF in matte enamel. Plumbing and faucets Toto, Nicolazzi, Bossini.
The bedroom, in accordance with the teachings of Feng Shui, is located in the north-eastern part of the apartment. The interior is designed in shades of beige, white-silver, blue in combination with a warm shade of light oak on the floor. The wall behind the headboard is highlighted with a plaster panel with a floral pattern. The panel is made to order according to the sketches of the studio designers. Vitset bed, King Koil high mattress. Above the bedside tables made of solid marble countertops, Bollu, lamps made of Czech crystal. The chest of drawers in oak veneer and Karelian birch root will be made to order in a Russian workshop. Under the panoramic window, the podium is a seat: in this way, a monolithic load-bearing beam is beaten. The doors, like everywhere else in the apartment, are Dorian.
A small guest bedroom occupies the southwest sector of the apartment. In the design of this room, water-silver and greenish colors were used with the addition of shades of wood and brass. The main part of the walls is painted in a pale blue shade. The area behind the bed is accented with Calico Singing Sand wallpaper. Textiles play a very important role in the design: the shade and ornament of curtains, tulle, pillows and bedspreads complement and enrich the design of the room. The chest of drawers and bedside table are designed in a light style reminiscent of midcentury modern and rustic. They, as well as a large built-in cabinet in brass and frosted glass, will be made to order according to the sketches of the studio designers. Carpet, Dovlet House.
The guest bathroom turned out to be small, but extremely functional. On an area of only 3 square meters, it turned out to beautifully and ergonomically place a shower, toilet and sink. The design of this room is the boldest and most unusual in the whole project. The color scheme is based on a combination of blue, white and saturated blue. On the floor and the lower part of the walls stylized porcelain stoneware marble, 41zero42 Pulp Green Raw. The upper part of the walls is finished with small-format mint-colored tiles 41zero42 Spectre Sky Hologram Mix, which, thanks to a combination of matte, glossy and mother-of-pearl decor, looks fresh and unusual. The cabinet and sink made of blue cast acrylic will be made to order. Mixer, Hansgrohe, shower system, Bossini. The shower partition on hidden rails will be made to order from painted aluminum and corrugated blue glass.
The main distinguishing feature of the apartment is a spacious private terrace with a view of the center of Moscow. A whole section of the roof has been given to the owners of the apartment. It has a seating area with a sofa and a separate chillout area in the form of a closed wicker armchair-"eggs". The main priority is given to the dining area under an umbrella from the sun and a barbecue with a bar. The rack did not appear by chance: in this place there is an ugly technical box, which is thus disguised from prying eyes. They even managed to bring water to the island. All furniture in neutral colors is selected from the Outdoor Stylist company, a decking is planned on the floor.
At the moment, the object is fully realized and is waiting for a professional photo shoot!
