I can be considered a fan of Ekaterina Avrutskaya and Alexander Akinkin designs and makeovers, they`re just bringing personality in the interiors and a story along with it.
We`ve previously reviewed an Outstanding Interior Design in a Moscow Apartment by Ekaterina Avrutskaya & Alexander Akinkin and The 13 Fox Masques Apartment by Akinkin & Avrutskaya Moscow,Russia which were both unique, individual personalities expressed to the limits.
This apartment realized by these great artists is located in the center of Moscow, near Kremlin; his position in the landscape gathers great views trough the windows, recalling the history of the street in the made over interiors.
The authors tried to reproduce the spirit of old Moscow, to recall “the basic moment in the development of art idea of the interior“.
The main task of the makeover was sadly, a more pragmatic one, the interior space of only 170 square meters had to serve a big family and therefore the interior space had to make great use of space, the apartment being transformed beyond recognition during the makeover. As these artists are most of the time materializing their imagination into unique items, making their designs unique and personal, they are doing the same here, a fireplace, the doors, cases a plaster stucco moulding, all this being designed and realized under their drawings.
As you would expect for such a huge transformation and handmade items, the reconstruction lasted for a year under their constant control and everything from colors to tableware has been chosen by Ekaterina Avrutskaya and Alexander Akinkin.
I do not know if our conclusion always matters, but we must point out that the volume of work and time invested in this makeover is exhilarating. The apartment is in a perfect equilibrium and breaths the air of a classic Moscow apartment not a contemporary one, the luxurious interior design is realized from scratch, every detail being sketched before, all the process being supervised in order to receive the exactly required image, ambiance and harmony. As stated in previous articles, in this era dominated by mass production items, stepping in this apartment would make you feel different, in a different century, a step into a wonderful part of the past.
We would really like to hear your opinion regarding this great apartment.
