This two-level loft in Moscow is designed forWriter and musician who prefers to work without leaving home and calling his home the cage in which he is imprisoned, being "in captivity with his talent." Many would like to live in such a cage! Loft - these are always unusual solutions and a revolutionary approach to space. The style of the loft gives the designer scope for imagination, and the author of the project Anna Valkina demonstrates this. Anna Valkina Architect, interior designer. Graduated from the Moscow Architectural Institute (MARhI). The project is created for a creative person, writer and musician who prefers to work without leaving home and calling his home the cage in which he is imprisoned, being "in captivity with his talent." Design of a two-level loft spaceResembles a huge checkered cabinet with open main zones flowing into each other (living room, kitchen, bedroom, office) and secondary premises hidden under the mezzanine. The cabinet theme is supported by a map applied to a brick wall, as well as a number of different inscriptions, selected in accordance with the zoning, in different fonts on different surfaces. The bed is located on the upper level, behind a massive oak portal, which distinguishes the living area and is at the same time a library, and is framed by two spacious built-in mirrored cabinets. From the office, under which is located in a nicheKitchen, well-seen living room and bedroom. The mezzanine and the stairs are covered with a large rigid metal net that does not interfere with the penetration of air and light, but serves as an excellent fence and supports the general idea of design. Under the mezzanine there is a bathroom, a cloakroom at the entrance, a laundry room and a storage room. The rest of the space was left open. Interior is solved in cold colors. The underlined texture of concrete on the ceiling, on the floor and partly on the walls visually unites the space. Lighting the ceiling is the designer's find. The entire room is crossed parallel to each other, cut along the carpentry pipes with wooden cylinders inserted in them with glass and an LED light bulb. Pendant lamps in the entire apartment are the same, but differ in size, why the sensation of scale changes. These lamps are the author's design of Ukrainian designers from K3N design studio. The decoration of the cabinet area is two items: A floor lamp is a personal thing of the owner, the only thing that will go with it after the repair is finished - and a working chair resembling the legendary Egg Chair of Concrete, which the author decided to make of wood and metal in the carpentry workshop. The bathroom is a concrete box, inWhich is inserted a metal checkered niche with a mirror wall, square cells and a glass illuminated podium, filled with pebbles, where the AVEO bathtub rises from Villeroy & Boch. A sink and toilet bowl with a built-in tank - a set from the Planet series from Scarabeo. The interior turned out to be interesting and whole. Stylistics loft is sustained, but the space is still residential and cozy. This interior emphasizes the individuality of its owner.
