A serene apartment in Moscow
This interiors project, by Russian architectural practice FORM, has all the hallmarks of luxe minimalism. Situated in the historical centre of Moscow within a new residential block, three existing apartments were merged into one in order to accommodate a large family. FORM then divided up the resultant space into two distinct areas, common and private, connected by the hallway, to allow for the differing needs of the family members.
The spaces have a feel of both serenity and formality to them, with clean structured lines softened by well chosen furniture (much of it custom designed), fittings, textiles and long floor to ceiling curtains. The subtle mix of textures, materials and quiet statement pieces gives the apartment a feeling of space and relaxation and I particularly like the soothing palette of aquamarine blue they've used on the walls as a backdrop to the natural and dark oak flooring and furniture.
Luxury and quiet individuality are combined to subtle effect, and subtle details are gradually revealed as you take the time to discover this space. Whether its the unusual recessed mirror with no right angles, the hexagonal coffee table incorporating modern graphical marquetry, or the three-dimensional grey wall panel with subtle 'anechoic' panelling references, there are lots of lovely surprises waiting to be discovered. Pure unadulterated luxury is catered for too. Who wouldn't like to take a dip in a beautiful white marble bathroom at the end of a long tiring day?
