The elegant kitchen of our comprehensive villa project in Moscow. Our studio took care not only of the renders, but of the actual architectural project as well.
Our Moscow villa project spans a whopping 500 square meters space, and we have renders of about half the locations. The kitchen was especially interesting to share, because we have an open view into the surrounding countryside. In this way you can better see our efforts to blend said country spirit with the minimalist frame of the building itself.
The final look, after retouch.
All things great begin with a small step!
We now define the permanent features of the kitchen and balance the lights.
We finally add all the small details and check one last time lights and GI. We can now think textures!
The textured render, raw. Colors are somewhat flashy and there is some chaos overall.
Learning from the masters
Russia is a unique place, as architectural costumes go, and modernity is often misused, to the detriment of the traditional dialogue with nature. With our Moscow villa deep in the countryside, it was paramount that we use materials and colors mindful of the contest. We, then, trusted rustic Italian ceramic, Belgian hand made brick and unbleached linen to counteract the necessary modern technology and the cold modern frame of the building itself.
Russia has also a feeling for horror vacui, in arts and everyday life. Hence, we opted for the big cooking island in the middle of the, otherwise, too spacious kitchen space. Similarly, we did not allow any surface to grow too empty, which would give a Mediterranean feel, clearly out of place in this region.
