Panoramic windows of the penthouse overlook Moscow City, Christ the Saviour Cathedral, Vorobyovy Hills and wonderful Novodevichy Convent.
And the key idea of the architects was to create comfortable interior, which is associated with the view, on one hand, and goes along with the main architectural concept - on the other.
The basic plan solution was to put the utility area, which doesn’t need daylight, into the centre and to arrange the living area as a circle around it. This layout allows the daylight fill in all the rooms: not only bedroom, children’s room and study room, which are located directly near the panoramic windows, but also the other spaces, connected with a common corridor into one zone - dining-room, sitting-room and kitchen. The main bathroom is separated with a wall made of matte glass. As long as there is a window in the bathroom, it creates one more source of daylight.
Plentiful sunlight, reflections and panoramic view could only spoil some interior styles, but definitely not this minimalistic one. Solemn and expensive, based on the noble combination of rare and precious materials, in this context minimalistic style becomes a piece of art itself.
