Vorobiev House: A Bright Interior with Natural Materials and Light Colors

Vorobiev House 10

Designed for a young couple, Vorobiev House is a 200 sqm apartment located in a residential complex in Moscow. Kerimov Architects uses natural materials and light colors to expand and enlarge the initially large space visually. The result is a modern house with an awesome bright interior.

A living room, dining area, and kitchen is the spacious multi-functional area in this house. Organized by Minotti sofas, the interior of this house is oriented to two sides: the L-shaped one frames the lounge area in front of the fireplace and TV, and the linear sofa faces the dining area.

With slim round tops and linear bases, the De Padova tables look graphically on the background of a Jan Kath rug and light gray sofa. The Minotti sofa and Rimadesio TV cabinet are high-equal and co-scaled thanks to the design approach, so the living room is bright and complete.

The perforated veneer screen is created especially for this project by the architect. This screen and the wall made of an Italian natural marble panel are the main accents in the living room. Merging with the vertical drapery of curtains, the thin Paola Castelli floor lamp can bring atmospheric light at night to the lounge space.

A Bonaldo table with an original base and De Padova chairs with a low backrest form the dining area beautifully, offering common features like thin lines, laconic stable forms, and common proportions. There is also an airy and undulating Ochre chandelier that can add dynamism to the static dining group.

The multifunctional Boffi kitchen is the highlight of the interior. The compartment for built-in appliances, sections for storing kitchen utensils and accessories, and convenient shelves are hidden behind the metal facade. There is also a built-in backlight in the kitchen.

The kitchen island is surrounded by Maxalto bar stools, serving as a breakfast area or a bar.

The architects chose a carpet by Michaela Schleypen, a voluminous fluffy Arflex armchair, a Galotti Radice vanity table with fine geometry, and, in contrast, a weightless Ochre chandelier, and a spacious Porro wardrobe with mirrored doors for an airy, light, and graphic walk-in-closet.

Designed in light colors, the master bedroom becomes the most comfortable room inside the house. A relief alcantara panel is created by the architect as a characteristic feature of the interior. This panel is created with built-in top lighting that plays on three-dimensional geometric planes.

With a comfortable fabric upholstered headboard, the Minotti bed is complemented by the Porro bedside tables and a Maxalto bench. In the lounge area, there are two-tone Minotti armchairs with a geometric Baxter table on a round carpet and enveloping U-shaped backs by  Michaela Schleypen. The Bocci branched lamp with flower-like shades can be found above this group.

Rimadesio sliding glass doors separate the master bathroom and the master bedroom. This bathroom has light colors that can multiply the natural light inside. A decorative screen and blackout curtains provide necessary privacy, designed by the architect. The screen frames the bathtub by Antonio Lupi.

Salvatori natural stone and Antonio Lupo sinks are made of natural marble are used to design this master bathroom.

Designed in dark tones, the guest bedroom is in contrast to the master bedroom. The key feature of this guest bedroom is the wall panel behind the bed created by the architect while the built-in perimeter lighting reflects on the texture awesomely. Full-height mirrors with adding some visual effect can be found on the sides of the panel.

Distinguished by a two-part high headboard and thin legs, the Saba bed can lighten the structure. There are also Baxter bedside tables inside the guest bedroom. The guest bathroom has dark tones that create an awesome background for the graphic pendant lights and the glass shower cubicle, fittings in a beautiful golden hue. The bathroom furniture brand is Cielo.

This house also has a home office that is accentuated beautifully by a carved Louis Vuitton leather partition and designed in neutral light colors. It becomes a decorative and functional element to add privacy. A textured wall with tactile sensations in this office allows switching attention in relaxation moments, completed with Occhio table lamps and Galotti Radice furniture.
