Russian architect Andrei Shmonkin created this gorgeous apartment. The architect “spoke the language of smooth lines.” In part, this contributed to the curved exterior wall, which lent a certain softness of the geometry of internal space.

The entrance was in the front wall, windows opened on one side, and with the traditional approach to planning was difficult to avoid the dismal “slicing” of rooms, connected by a long corridor or common hall. But the architect managed to find innovative solutions. He offered to withdraw from the usual division into separate rooms, making an exception only for bedrooms, bathrooms and technical facilities. All other areas combined into one flexible composition, which became the center of a spectacular spiral staircase, faced with white marble. It is not only “holds” the space, but divides it into the living room area, kitchen and dining room and library.

Second floor completely transformed into a private area. The spiral staircase leads to the study, which is also a winter garden. Cabinet is easily transformed into a recreation area, built-in cupboards can hide the desktop with office equipment. Next is a bedroom, more precisely, a multifunctional space where combines three zones: a bedroom, bathroom and cloakroom. Bathroom from the bedroom is separated only with transparent glass wall, which if you want you can close the curtains.

Despite the homogeneity of the color scheme, built on shades of white and brown, there reigns a game of contrasts. Polished marble floor in the bathroom contrasts with carpeting in the bedroom, and wall of dark wood in light serves as a bright spot of color. Each functional area has its own color and a unique combination of textures. But together they form a unified ensemble.
