Minimalism can be warm, comfortable, luxurious. This is the opinion of Shamsudin Kerimov and Ekaterina Kudinova. A young couple bought an apartment on Vorobyovskoye Highway: an area of 200 sq. meters, panoramic windows on three sides. Having created a verified space for the owners, the architects decorated it with textures and hand-made details.
The luxurious Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades leather screen in the study, the TV panel in the living room, the embossed panel at the head of the bed – these elements add visual warmth to the interior and tie together its parts. “Some people think minimalism is cold. There is no “cold” here. What there is a universal basis that opens up freedom: the owners can add their own items without fear of breaking the harmony, fill the rooms tightly or do with a small amount of decor – the finished picture will still be preserved. In general, minimalism is more than just a style in the interior. It’s a way of thinking, a way of life. “
Much of the apartment is custom-made, at first, it was developed with the help of professional software. “This approach helps to take into account all the nuances, adjust the dimensions, see how other furniture will look like against the background of our developments. It is difficult to imagine the work of a modern architect without computer design. We consider 3D visualization to be a particularly important stage: the customer understands what his interior will be like, and we know exactly which picture we use for implementation – the project goes without “surprises”. At the same time, we often make sketches by hand in the process of work, ”says Shamsudin Kerimov.
There is no “smart home” system here; Ekaterina and Shamsudin rarely use it in city apartments. “Smart house is a significant part of the budget, it seems unreasonable to invest in it and then save on a good kitchen or sofa. Now, if the customer understands one hundred percent why he needs it, then we install it. “
