There are many beautiful Stalins in Kazan, although not as spectacular as their Moscow sisters. The house in which the customer of Angelina Borodkina and Ksenia Evstafyeva decided to open a fashion showroom also has a good location – it stands on the main street, near the Kazan Kremlin and the City Hall.

“The first floor has always been commercial,” the architects say— “an old Soviet department store with a characteristic breccia on the floor and with gastronomic signs in the style of an Exhibition of Achievements of the National Economy has been located on the site of our showroom since time immemorial. Very colorful””

The room, according to them, was designed for a store and did not require redevelopment. Two floors, on the ground floor there are huge windows, four-meter ceilings and a free space with two supporting columns. At the entrance there is a buffer zone, which ends with a staircase to the ground floor, where there is a warehouse, offices and a bathroom. It’s an ideal option for a showroom.

The customer saw the interior as modern, minimalist, with unusual details that do not overload the interior. A cool space for fashionable girls, where the best Russian brands are presented, they brew delicious coffee and meet customers as friends. “We like the brands in question, so we quickly “got along” with the customer,” the authors of the project laugh.

At first, yellow glass appeared in it, which decorated the boxes for clothes, they gave the interior a futuristic theme. Ingo Maurer lamps, Zieta Studio chairs, USM dressers and white marble were pulled up to them. The windows were covered with curtains made of transparent film with the company’s logo — a solution that architects especially like.

The management of the construction site was taken over by the husband of the owner of the store, everything was completed on time and without failures. This can be guessed from the sunny mood that radiates from the interior. Architects recall working on it with pleasure: “It was fun””
