The four-level apartment in the south-west of Moscow

A four-level apartment in the south-west of Moscow upon Petr Kostelov’s project with author’s furniture and corkwood finishing.

At the very height of crisis of 2008 – not a simple time for architects – Petr Kostelov unexpectedly received a letter with two orders which were a dream. One object was a small apartment at Kitay-gorod, the other was a two-level apartment with the metric area of 250 square meters. The owners sold the former apartment after a partial repair – the new owner walled up carefully restored brickwork with artificial one with plastic, and installed а shower cabin with hydromassage instead of sanitaryware Duravit of “1930” series.

The architect’s disappointment was compensated completely with the work at the second project. The space surprised: 250 meters on two levels with nine-meter ceilings in some parts of the premise gave a full swing in realization of Kostelov’s favourite mezzanines. On top of it all the customers – a family with two children – gave a full swing in the matter, insisting only on using of warm colour scheme.
The repair lasted for almost two years, during which the context changed a little: two more children appeared in the owners’ family, and initial architectural and functional designs were changed a little as a result.

The object was unique by many parameters, and that enabled to make a house in a house from the apartment. Three levels were made instead of two due to high ceilings, significantly increasing the living area (by 80 square meters).
