The futuristic interior design of this townhouse in Moscow is done for a young family with two children. The main idea was to create a fascinating design of the space that values both light and shadow and still is functional at the same time.
The futuristic interior design is inspired by the works of Santiago Calatrava, a Spanish architect, especially by his largest project – the City of Arts and Sciences in Valencia. The combination of futurism with white weightless architecture is an inspiration and is embodied magnificently in this project.
Curved shapes of open storage systems create interesting visual accents of light and shadow. They dominate and that changes the perception of the usual rectangular volume of space. Curved shapes are accompanied by soft coaches that are placed on different levels.
The floor and part of the wall in the dining room of the townhouse project are made of the breccia technique, out of marble pieces. It resembles landscapes of Santiago Calatrava’s projects and complements the futuristic mood of the interior.
This solution is an example of a sustainable design in which recyclable material is used to create the mosaic. The floor was the most challenging part of the project, it is not only sustainable but also very durable. The chairs in the dining room were designed from the sheet steel, the inspiration for them was the bar stool design by Leon Ransmeir.
