A light, airy and multifunctional apartment. Interior design by Kerimov Architects it has been modified: 2023-03-30 di Benedetto Fiori

The interior design of this 200 square meter multifunctional apartment in the “Vorobiev House” residential complex in Moscow was designed by Kerimov Architects. The project was created for a young couple who chose light colors and natural materials to expand the space and have greater brightness.

The multifunctional area includes a living room, a dining area and a Boffi kitchen with shelves hidden behind a monolithic metal facade and marble backsplashes. The rest of the apartment features a walk-in closet, a master bedroom in light tones with an alcantara panel, a master bathroom with a metal screen and an Antonio Lupi marble bathtub, a guest bedroom in dark tones and a home office in neutral colors with a Louis Vuitton wall and furnishings by Galotti Radice.


The spacious multifunctional area includes a living room, dining area and kitchen. The interior is organized by Minotti sofas, oriented towards two sides: the linear sofa overlooks the dining area, while the L-shaped one frames the lounge area in front of the TV and fireplace. De Padova tables with thin round tops and linear bases are graphically placed against the background of a light gray sofa and a Jan Kath carpet. The Rimadesio TV cabinet and the Minotti sofa are co-scaled and of equal height, thanks to this design approach, the living room appears visually light and compositionally complete. The main accent in the living room is the wall made of natural Italian marble panel and openwork wooden screen specially created for this project by Kerimov Architects. The slim Paola Castelli floor lamp practically merges with the vertical curtain, bringing atmospheric light to the lounge area at night.

The dining area is formed by a Bonaldo table with an original base and De Padova chairs with a low back tapering to the armrests – these elements have common characteristics such as stable laconic forms, thin lines and common proportions. An airy, undulating Ocher chandelier literally hovers above the table adding dynamism to the static dining ensemble.

The highlight of the interior is the multifunctional Boffi kitchen. Convenient shelves, sections for storing kitchen utensils and accessories and a compartment for built-in household appliances, which are hidden behind the monolithic metal facade. The back wall is made of cosmic black marble. For ease of use, the kitchen has a built-in backlight. When the kitchen is not in use, the facades are tightly closed – this allows not to violate the integrity of the interior and minimize visual noise.

The kitchen island also serves as a bar or breakfast area. She is surrounded by Maxalto bar stools.


For an airy, bright and graphic walk-in closet, the architects chose a large Porro wardrobe with mirrored doors, a light Ocher chandelier, a Galotti Radice make-up table with fine geometry and, in contrast, a voluminous soft Arflex armchair and a by Michaela Schleypen.


The master bedroom is designed in light colors. A feature of the furniture is an embossed alcantara panel created by Kerimov Architects with lighting incorporated into the top, which plays beautifully on three-dimensional geometric planes while illuminated.

The Minotti bed with a comfortable upholstered panel in fabric is perfectly combined with the Maxalto bench and the Porro bedside tables.

The seating area in the bedroom consists of two-tone Minotti armchairs with wraparound U-backs and a geometric Baxter table on a round rug by Michaela Schleypen. Above this group is the Bocci branched lamp with flower-shaped shades.


The master bathroom adjoins the master bedroom: the spaces are interrupted by Rimadesio sliding glass doors. Like the bedroom, the bathroom is designed in light colors, multiplying the natural light that enters the room. The necessary privacy is guaranteed by blackout curtains and a decorative metal screen, designed by the architects, which frames the bathtub by Antonio Lupi.

Salvatori natural stone and Antonio Lupi sinks in natural marble are used in the design of the master bathroom.


The guest bedroom is designed in dark tones, contrasting with the master bedroom. The main feature of the furniture is the wall panel behind the bed, created by the architects, with built-in perimeter lighting, which reflects nicely on the texture. To the sides of the panel, there are full height mirrors which add a visual effect.

The Saba bed is characterized by a high panel divided into two parts and thin legs, visually lightening the structure. Baxter bedside tables, as if composed of rings, naturally continue their expressive spherical shape in lamps with two-tone shades.


The guest bathroom is done in dark tones, creating a dramatic backdrop for the glass walk-in shower, graphic pendant lights and taps in a warm golden tone. The bathroom furniture brand is Cielo.


The two-person home office is designed in neutral and bright colors, accented by a Louis Vuitton carved leather partition. It is not only a decorative element, but also a functional one - it adds privacy, allowing you to focus on solving important tasks.

Another feature of the interior is a textured wall, pleasant to the touch – tactile sensations allow you to change the focus during moments of relaxation. For the home office area, furniture by Galotti Radice and table lamps by Occhio were chosen.
