Dangerous pleasure: the most stylish weapon store in Russia

Designers from the bureau "ArkhPoint" have developed an interiorFor the store "Kolchuga", which is located in the heart of Moscow. Why it does not have a single scarecrow, you can learn from our article! "Kolchuga" is the first domestic non-state network of weapons stores. Specializes in selling the best weapons and equipment. The store, which will be discussed, is located in the historic center of the capital, in the Gostiny Dvor building, not far from the Kremlin and the Historical Museum. Here you can often see artists, politicians, journalists. The authors of the project, architects Valery Lizunov and Valeriya Bykova, proposed to create an interior that will continue the history of the building and emphasize its dignity: high ceilings and arches. Another goal was to get away from the typical hunting theme (from scarecrows and similar entourage), to create not so much a store as an exhibition space in which weapons are exhibited. Hence - the refusal of the traditional counter in favor of specially designed showcases, decorated in a classical style. Valery Bykov, architect: "The project was very interesting in terms of implementation. Since the building is historic, when dismantling previously unknown unknown bearing elements were discovered. I also had to finalize the ventilation system. In addition, special security requirements are placed on the arms stores, and this has also left a serious imprint on the work. " The weapon itself, having its own aesthetics andCharm, organically becomes the subject of the interior, while the rest of its elements (stucco monograms on the walls, oak arch portals, as well as stucco deer heads adorning showcases) rather focus on expensive exhibits. As a general color solution of the interiorTone selected, close to the whitened oak. Zoning is carried out, firstly, due to different levels of sex, and secondly, through textures (wood and painting). Here there are zones of cold weapons, guns, clothes, VIP ... Particularly the department of the legendary brand of arms Beretta, in which the corporate preferences of the Italian manufacturer are combined with the general interior of the store: there is no stucco (only the Beretta logo is left), marble on the floor is laid out with a classic pattern, Showcases with a light backdrop.
