A neoclassical design and relaxing colors and shapes for a family residence in Moscow, with eclectic, modern, and opulent accents in the common areas. A perfect mix of past and present.
The shape of the residence conforms to precise mathematical proportions: these determine both the footprint and the elevation of the building. Within this arithmetical scheme there is deployed a decorative language that comes from the Greco-Roman tradition. This is a language that, fittingly enough, tends towards regularity and symmetry.
The external walls are faced with dark brick – a material that was adopted in typical of northern European architecture. White decorative elements – cornices, pediments, pilasters and entablature – place emphasis on the doors and windows. They temper the effect of the monochromatic brick, and generally lighten the façade of the building.
