Traces of constructivism in a mini apartment in Moscow

The Russian studio buro5, led by architect Boris Denisiuk, has been called to renovate an apartment of just 43 sqm in Moscow.

The ingenious choice was to deconstruct the almost squared plan available, articulating it through partition walls that become the protagonists of the space. These are also the only elements that stand out chromatically from the minimalist candour of the rest of the apartment. The small dining table, also made of white wood, is paired by two Plia chairs by Castelli signed by Giancarlo Piretti in '67.

The living room, which occupies more than half the available space, contains only the white kitchen and a leather sofa, which stands out in its simplicity thanks to the contrast with the bedroom partition wall in concrete-glass.

To the right of the entrance, the bathroom has its own precise design through the use of two semicircular walls, nostalgic traces of Soviet tradition and Bauhaus modernism, also mentioned by the transparent wall. To upgrade the bathroom as an object in its own right, it was then internally cladded with small shiny blue tiles, in contrast to the white joints, which resonate even more thanks to the mirrored door that multiplies the optical effect.

Through the use of some design furniture and a precise geometry of plan, the Russian architect has given a strong identity to a tiny apartment.
