Defined by a relaxed atmosphere, this contemporary apartment designed by Geometrix Design for a family in Moscow, Russia, showcases an interesting mix of colors and materials. A generous open plan living and dining space sets the tone for a home that impresses through neatness and space. A white bar table, a dining table for six and two comfortable sofas of contrasting color reassure us that is a cheerful crib where family and guests love to spend time together. The white kitchen against the background of a slate stonewall serves as a compositional center. Storage space is cleverly hidden and the doors of the wall-mounted closets open upwards, with the help of an automatic push-button control.
One of the most interesting part of this apartment in Moscow, is the children’s room, described by the designers as follows: “The extraordinary wall unit attracts your attention immediately. It is made according to the design of the studio architects and serves as a storage system, a closet, and a playing area at the same time. The major highlight is in the center – a stairway leading to the “roof” of the closet covered with soft pillows: there you can just sit and read a book, or make a defense headquarters. One of the walls is decorated with soft puzzle-shaped panels made according to the designers’ idea. When the boys grow up, the panels can be taken off to make the interior more composed“.
