Alexandr is a remodeled flat located in Moscow, Russia. This remodeling project, by , is for a young family, including their 2-year-old son and Russian blue cat. The clients wanted their home to be a reflection of their lives and interests: the wife works at home and needed space to complete her work, as well as her painting on the side, while the husband wanted space for his football and cycling hobbies. Lastly, they wanted a soothing atmosphere to enjoy wine at home in the evenings.
This was no minor remodeling project. This 109 square meter (1,173 square feet) flat was given an entirely new floor plan, with the addition of a bathroom, increased closet and storage space, and a wine chiller in the walk-in cabinet. The kitchen was connected to the living room, and the bathroom borrowed some space from the corridor. The living room was further defined from the connecting corridor by the addition of a floating cabinet, which serves as storage and to gently divide the space.
The colors are natural and muted, with an emphasis on natural wood tones, charcoal walls and metallic accents. There is also an emphasis on marble accents in the kitchen and foyer.
