In a conversation, Boris Uborevich-Borovsky said thatevery architect must look for a “new language”. For several decades, the architect and his team have been proving that they have successfully solved this problem. Uborevich-Borovsky was able to find a new language, which turned out to be close and understandable to many. Clear lines, color asceticism, glass, unusual shapes - this is how the architect “talks” to the world Boris Uborevich-Borovsky - a man who loves to go forward. Likes to explore space and be careful with color. However, we will not tell everything at once. The classic of minimalism shared his principles in life and design in a conversation with us, and you have a unique opportunity to learn about them.

Principles of the work of Boris Uborevich-Borovsky

Style

- I grew up in the Moscow Architectural Institute, and this is the school where I came fromconstructivism is the basis of 20th century art. Therefore, minimalism is closer to me, as everyone now says. In fact, it is just a modern style that many architects work in. Historical parallels are not very interesting to me, although we have several projects that we have done in the historical style. For example, we created one of the houses in the Moscow region, inspired by Karl Rossi's Elagin Palace. But still, it's not mine. Although knowledge of historical styles is necessary, especially when you study, analyze, when you want to understand how architecture has developed over time. I like going forward, not looking back. It seems to me that we must come up with something of our own. Maybe I can do it, maybe not very well, but in any case, I believe that an architect should look for a new language.

Price list

We chose a certain niche. We felt that we are still in high positions, because we have certain advantages. We do not frighten off the customer with a fabulous price, we are not such stars that can set an unrealistic price tag. But we still believe that we can not be compared with students who have just started working, and with those who do not yet have sufficient experience. Therefore, our work is estimated in the amount of 100 euros for one square meter - this is the minimum price. And then we look at the object, the customer, the expected budget. Because the architect earns not only the project, but also the support of the construction, the assembly - there are many different jobs for the architect. Apartment on the street of Olof Palme.

Uniqueness

Our uniqueness is due to the fact that we haveWe have accumulated a lot of experience: we have been working in the field of interior design for 22 years. We know a lot about the use of materials. Now there are a large number of young talented architects who come up with beautiful ideas, but they do not understand how to implement them, because they do not know how to handle materials. And you need to know this thoroughly and deeply, because different things can happen to them. We have done a lot, we know a lot. We keep recalling the well-known wisdom that an architect matures by the age of 50. Experience is our main asset. Our second advantage is that we are mainly architects and think from the point of view of the organization of space. This is sometimes forgotten by both designers and decorators. They believe that the main thing, for example, is the color, shape or density of a design. But they forget that there are proportions of the room, elementary ergonomics, according to which a person feels uncomfortable in a narrow corridor, in a room with a low ceiling or with black walls. The study of space should be the main starting point for building an interior. Knowing the color and understanding the color, we do not exploit it to the extent that it interferes with our projects. A lot of projects, especially in Russia, are executed with some dominant color combinations that frighten off the consumer. They destroy certain canons. Maybe this is something revolutionary, but it is very difficult to live with it. Our careful attitude to color combinations is also an advantage. Apartment on the street Veskovsky dead end.

The coolest projects

We made a lot of different objects, but we do notare focused only on interior design. We really like to deal with great architecture. Recently we participated in the contest for the project of the parliamentary center of the Russian Federation. At one time we built almost all the housing on Khodynka. We won the competition for the pavilion of nuclear energy on the territory of VDNH. We helped Olga Sviblova create the Moscow House of Photography, which turned into a "Multimedia Art Museum". This is also our work. I and my team believe that the multidimensionality in the work of the architect is correct. Manor house in the village Ozerny.

Apartment in Filippovskiy Lane

My favorite project is a small loft inFilippovsky lane. We were told: "There is no customer yet, the terms of reference too, do what you want." It turned out to be one of our best projects. It was made a long time ago, more than 10 years ago, but it is very unexpected, cozy, comfortable and bright. I think this is a definite milestone in our creativity. I love this project because it was done in one go, fast and inexpensive. It turned out very effectively. We also liked this experience very much due to the fact that the client's influence has both a positive and a negative side. The plus is that we do our job for the customer, and his attitude, mood, worldview should form the basis of the project. But on the other hand, the client often gets in the way, because he has certain stereotypes and complexes that hinder the development of the project. The apartment is on Filippovsky Lane.

Restaurant R18 / 12

We were offered to make a restaurant in the bank building. We created a modern interior with elements of classics: chandeliers, mirrors in frames, ivory piano. In the restaurant there are three zones - this is the main hall with an open kitchen, a veranda that opens onto Kutuzovsky Prospect and a music and cigar room on the lower level. Restaurant R18 / 12.

Loft in Zhukovka

There is transparency in this interior:there are practically no doors, one common space that is free of any styles and preferences. There is glass, white and black colors, simple shapes, not a single superfluous detail. We love this design approach. Interior design can mean anything. It so happens that the interior creates a luxurious aura around the customer, the customer becomes like a picture in an expensive frame. Or the interior can emphasize the beauty of the client without distracting attention. I am a supporter of the second approach, that is, I believe that a person should be beautiful not with his interior, but with himself. And the interior design should be a reflection of it. One beautiful woman ordered this project for her son. I had a definite idea - beautiful people in this interior should not get lost. Therefore, there is such austerity, a lot of air and space. We have different projects, but they are all made in a style that is recognizable. I think this is a must. Otherwise, in this service market, and, in principle, in creativity, you can get lost among different trends and opinions. Our projects are different in scope, but very similar in content. Over the past 10-15 years, I consider every second our project to be successful, there is a story to tell about it, because we always put in quite a lot of ideas, thoughts and creative intensity.

About me and the team

I have been doing architecture for over 30 years.Back in the early 90s, I became very interested in interior design. I consider myself an architect of different scale - among my projects there are urban planning complexes and homestead houses. I really enjoy doing interior design because it's a pretty quick implementation with few collaborators. This is the difference from large architecture. My team is very good, close-knit, young. 25 people. These are mainly architects - I don't really like working with decorators, because they have a different education, mentality, perception of culture. I am not saying that this is bad. Decorating is a very interesting profession. But I do architectural interiors, I do exactly the construction of space. I believe that space is a kind of framework for life, into which a person brings his own details, his color. Moreover, if the person himself is a bright figure, then he looks better just against a calm background. Because in a bright interior, it can get lost. Design and decoration are needed when there is absolutely not enough means for expression. Penthouse on the street. Mosfilmovskaya. Studio of Boris Uborevich-Borovsky Penthouse on the street.

Blitz-poll

- What brands do you prefer? — Мне интересны все современные бренды. Я очень люблю итальянцев, потому что они очень артистичны, в них очень много жизни. Это РOLIFORM, B&B, Molteni. Мы посещаем миланскую выставку, ходим по павильонам и видим много разных брендов, которые отвечают тем запросам, которые мы как архитекторы адресуем мебельным компаниям. Немцы тоже нас радуют. Они очень продуманны, технологично классно сделаны, но в них маловато души. Нам хочется, чтобы мебель и аксессуары дышали каким-то дизайном, какой-то аурой творчества. Я думаю, что итальянцы нам, русским архитекторам и дизайнерам, больше близки по духу. — Какова география ваших услуг? — Я очень привязан к Москве и как архитектор очень много работал на этот город. Мои заказчики — это всё-таки москвичи. Я делаю разные проекты по России — во Владивостоке, в Нижнем Новгороде, в Санкт-Петербурге, в Сочи. Это понятная география, она у многих архитекторов такая. Кстати, Санкт-Петербург — это совсем другая история, чем Москва, с точки зрения восприятия проекта, отношения к дизайну. Я проектировал дома в Испании. Много отношений партнёрских было с японскими, английскими, американскими, канадскими архитекторами. Как правило, с иностранцами отношения выстраиваются так: они хотят создать какой-то проект в Москве, и мы здесь им занимаемся. Что касается серьёзных заграничных проектов, то все понимаем, что рынок архитектурных и дизайнерских услуг в мире переполнен предложениями. А в России есть определённый вакуум, потому что мы ещё только входим в это мировое пространство дизайна. Главное — взаимопонимание с клиентом. Потому что здесь есть заказчики, которые доверяют твоему вкусу, твоим словам. А у многих россиян, которые живут за границей и хотят там что-то построить, возникает языковой барьер — они не могут объяснить дизайнеру-иностранцу, чего они хотят. — Вспомните, пожалуйста, необычный случай из своей практики. — Вообще стройки и реализации идей архитекторов — это минное поле, которое наполнено совершенно непредсказуемыми ситуациями. Мне хочется обо всём этом рассказать — можно выпустить целый многотомник с интересными историями о нашей работе. Могу сказать, что если бы мы делали проекты и просто отдавали их заказчику, то всё было бы гораздо проще. Но мы занимаемся реализацией, и тут начинается самое интересное. Потому что на стройке ты соединяешь очень много людей, сталкиваются разные интересы. Происходит броуновское движение, которое иногда приводит к очень хорошему результату, а иногда к большим потерям. Но у меня таких серьёзных проблем не было. — Какая самая сложная задача перед вами стояла? — В основном все сложные задачки связаны, как ни странно, с водой. Это случаи, когда ты делаешь джакузи, переливные бассейны и так далее. Вода и стекло — это дико сложно. И это приходится много раз переделывать. У меня так было на одном из объектов — мы сделали купель из стекла, через которое вода переливалась. Это должна быть специальная конструкция без винтов, которая держится на силиконе. При этом она должна выдерживать большие нагрузки, особенно в тот момент, когда движется вода. Мы справились с этим, конечно, но путём неимоверных усилий. После таких историй я принял для себя решение не впутываться в сложные ситуации. Проект должен быть комфортным, интересным, но все эти сложные механизмы, такие как вода, перетекающая через стекло, и так далее, приводят к тому, что могут возникнуть непредсказуемые последствия и по деньгам, и по реализации, и просто по жизни этих проектов. Сегодня ты сдал объект и всё хорошо, а через полгода могут быть такие сложности с ним, что надо будет всё переделывать. Ещё оказалось очень сложно работать с тёплыми полами. Дело в том, что мы всё время используем на полах дорогие материалы — укладываем очень красивый мрамор, гранит. Но когда вы монтируете тёплый пол, то вы совершенно не застрахованы от того, что вам не придётся всё это снимать. Сейчас у нас такая ситуация в замечательном пентхаусе на Пироговке, в котором тёплый пол замурован под мраморный пол в ванной. И нам сейчас придётся всё это снимать, потому что пол неправильно был скоммутирован, кто-то его не проверил, и в итоге вся работа насмарку. А это огромные деньги. Поэтому надо быть очень аккуратным, особенно с теми вещами, которые работают скрыто, установлены где-то в бетоне, в стяжках, связаны с электричеством или водой. — Расскажите о своём любимом пространстве в квартире. — Я живу довольно скромно. Так сложилось, и мне это нравится. Всё-таки менталитет русского человека направлен на общение, а оно происходит обычно на кухне. Поэтому именно там мне нравится больше всего. Я люблю готовить и люблю принимать гостей. Гостиная — это, конечно, хорошо: диваны, телевизоры. Но мы, москвичи, больше любим уютную атмосферу. Нам нравятся уединённые уголки в интерьере, где мы можем скрыться от любопытных глаз и посвятить это время себе или своему собеседнику.
