Boca do Lobo has recently teamed up with Arch.Predmet Interior Design Studio, conceiving a classic and elegant Private Residence in Russia. Well known in the interior design industry by efficient design principles and by offering solutions that combine aesthetic and comfort during the entire design process, designers Ekaterina Tulupova and Olesya Sitnikova created an eclectic space, where the noble splendor of classicism stands out.
In 2016, Olesia Sitnikova and Ekaterina Tulupova form Arch.Predmet Interior Design Studio completed the project of a country house with the area of 1,000+ sq.m in which they combined contemporary design and natural materials. When the designers first visited the house, they saw empty space without any partitions.
The layout of these luxury interiors was developed according to the client’s requirements. On the ground floor, they decided to locate a spacious loft, lounge zone, study, contemporary dining room, with two informal but modern living rooms and a small kitchen being enclosed.
They also equipped the second professional kitchen for the invited executive chief to cook. As the height of the loft’s ceiling was 7 m, they decided to use such a huge space in the most efficient way. For this purpose, they arranged a mezzanine floor to include a library with an incredible home office decor and a cigar room.
Contemporary Bedrooms are located on a separate floor; besides, each bedroom had its own luxury bathroom, walk-in closet, living room, dining room and mini-kitchen, as well.
Interior concept was underpinned by architecture. Transom bars, balcony rails and double slope ceilings should be accepted “as is” and were not subject to alteration. However, the authors were not facing the challenge to fill the rooms with the things typical of a ‘house in the country’.
“It is neither chateau, nor chalet,” they pointed out. “You won’t see here bearskins and reindeer heads, we carefully tried to avoid cliches. Designers strived to create the interior of a country house with due regard to modern trends, to make a warm and cozy space full of natural materials. Pixel Cabinet by Boca do Lobo, was one of the pieces that was carefully customized thought the usage of wood.
“We used very much wood in the interior to decorate the walls, the floors and partially the ceiling. This material creates a remarkable atmosphere and smells fantastic. The idea of revealing the ceiling beams that have previously been hidden was definitely good. The beams remind us of a traditional house; at the same time, their unconventional bionic form makes the interior more up-to-date.”
The designers used the beams, battens and lamellas to produce the best effect, which was possible due to the architecture. Such techniques added complexity and diversity to space featuring the minimum amount of materials being used, laconic furniture items and quiet colors.
According to the influence of natural elements, this project included also Eden Center Table by Boca do Lobo, a contemporary design piece that blends elegance and splendor.
