This eight-floor building seamlessly integrates with the surrounding Shabolovka area, known for its timeless architectural elegance.

Hallways: Innovative light installations seamlessly integrated into the walls create a captivating effect, reflecting on the natural marble and enhancing the perception of space. The hallways were designed to provide a private and serene oasis, offering respite from the city's hustle and bustle. Dark inserts complement the light color palette, while echoing the design elements of the lobby's reception desk.
Materials: The timeless allure of natural marble as the floor covering contributes to an enduring aesthetic and a sustainable living environment. The sleek and modern steel finishes of the elevators add an industrial touch while exuding durability and sophistication. Pylons and architraves crafted from natural stone create a visually appealing and cohesive atmosphere. Tailor-made interior pieces, such as decorative panels, a reception desk, cornices, and wall lights, were meticulously designed to emphasize the luxury status of the residential development.
