In this project, Hills Design Studio demonstrated its creative credo: as much air and light as possible, natural materials, handmade and no ostentatious luxury.

The apartment-new building had good initial data: the last floor, ceilings about three and a half meters, many windows and a beautiful view of the Botanical Garden and Yauza.

A fragment of the studio. The ceiling and pylon are left in the original concrete from which the house is built. The concrete has been cleaned and treated with a colorless, dust-free impregnation. The wall decoration is limited by a metal corner in the upper part and does not reach the ceiling. This solution hides the unevenness of the ceiling to the walls. An LED strip is installed in the resulting shadow niche, which fills the interior with soft, reflected light.Photo: Sergey Krasyuk

“Customers came to us inspired by the principles on the basis of which we design,” the designers say— “after the first interview it became clear that our views on modern interior coincide. We have received a great credit of trust, thanks to this we have fully implemented the plan””

By modern standards, the apartment is small, but the owners are convinced minimalists, they do not buy extra things, large-sized items are stored in the storage room of the underground level, and they want to see their house free, spacious, filled with air. Therefore, a solid part of the space (thirty-six meters) was allocated by the designers for a studio combining the functions of a kitchen, dining room and living room; a free space for yoga classes was left in the bedroom, and a small office was designed so that it could turn into a nursery in the future.

The proximity to the park and the river was reflected in the interior: the authors of the project relied on simple forms and natural materials. The ceiling and the supporting pylon were left in concrete, the furniture was ordered by artisans. The bar counter, dining table, benches and window slopes, shelves and cabinets in the hallway and bathroom — all this is made of solid oak, and the designers did not manage to achieve the desired texture immediately, the search for craftsmen and experiments with wood took a lot of time.

But now everything is exactly as the designers and their customers wanted: the central part of the apartment is permeated with light, you can admire the trees of the main botanical garden from anywhere in the studio. The best observation point, of course, is a couch under the window — an ideal place for meditation, reading or doing nothing.
