The luxurious housing estate Airbus was put into service in 2008, but Edward felt an urge to buy here a lodging long before: driving by the construction project he paid attention to its outstanding architecture. The requirements were exacting: contemporary European layout, panoramic windows, impressive view, safety, an underground garage and convenient location.

Earlier Edward was engaged in restaurant business and lived in Moscow suburbs. Coming to the Airbus was related to his career and job transition: now he is involved in interior design, furniture and home textile industry, so filling of the new apartment was no problem to him.

The project was entrusted to Helen Filimonova, a close friend of the host and a hereditary architect. She deeply affected Edward’s architecture and design tastes, and he learned a lot from her – now they frequently help each other in their jobs.

The interior style can be characterized as functional and geometrical. Though some of the items emigrated from the previous lodging (such as a chest of drawers and bed by Armobil), the host’s plan is to replace them with more reserved details with time.

In his new apartment the host was trying to escape conventional zoning and small accents.
As fundamentals Edward chose grey and silvery colors, oak parquetry by Tarkett, Italian tile and ceramic granite. As for the walls, they are entirely concrete, with most of architectural elements custom-made. For instance, a professional artist was laboring at a portal between the entrance hall and the lounge for a week, gradually applying a layer after a layer. Kitchen set  custom-made from the architect’s drawings, refrigerator  Gorenje Pininfarina, built-in kitchen equipment with an oven  Gorenje Ora-Ito. Dining group: table  Bontempi, chairs  Swan Сhair, chaise longue and blue arm-chair  Egg Chair, Fritz Hansen mill.

A great deal of attention was devoted to geometrical component of the space – the primary task was not to ruin it with irregular shapes. In the daytime an impressive city view is concealed behind Roman blinds with blackout effect. They were manufactured by Edward’s company Megapolis Casa. Modular sofa in the lounge  Doimo Salotti. Standard lamps by Porada, Italy.





The same pedantic approach was used in the bedroom zone, which is separated from the kitchenette with a smoked glass unit. Baseboards are custom-made, as well as German sockets.

Bath  Villeroy & Boch, furniture – custom-made from the architect’s drawings, mixing taps  Damixa.
