Remodeled Stalinist Style Apartment was converted into a Modern Space with a Retro Touch
By Magaly • Nov 20, 2017
This project is the remodeling of a floor from an old Stalinist house located in Moscow, Russia. These buildings obviously cannot be compared to modern buildings with multiple apartments, but there are many who love these old houses of low rise buildings, with thick and reliable brick walls, good ceiling height and a style special from old Moscow, amongst many other qualities.
The one responsible for the transformation of this apartment, which originally looked depressing and dismal, was architect Maxim Tikhonov from the architectural firm m2project, who turned it into a modern space with a retro touch.
In the kitchen and in the bedroom, brick walls have been kept. These give a touch of warmth to the spaces. In the living room, glass doors have been placed, connecting the small balconies and allowing natural light to enter and fill the spaces, thus eliminating the reigning darkness that was one of the main causes of the depressing impression that was perceived before remodeling.
The design also shows a wide abundance of textures, painted walls, blocks, bricks, concrete, oak floors. To avoid overloading the spaces, it was decided to give the walls a predominantly white coat of paint.
