Moscow-based multidisciplinary team INT2 architecture overhauled a 56 sqm apartment located in a pre-revolutionary building in the centre of Russia’s capital, by referencing the French neoclassicism. White walls highlight proportions of the apartment and purity of the architectural form.
These classical elements are the background for the “antibody” – minimalist black box, in which all the technical spaces are conteined (WC, boiler, kitchen, wardrobe). The Box is a compositional center around which the main functional areas are situated: the kitchen with four meter long kitchen island, a bar-lounge area with leather lounge chairs, a biofireplace, 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.
