Text description provided by the architects. The basis for the creation of the interior served as a non-standard original layout of the house and the customer's wishes.

The apartment is located in a 40-storey high-rise building, in which there are no open windows due to strong gusts of wind. Instead, ventilation is provided through the front grille, located on the balcony. There's also the place to set the air conditioner was provided. Balcony area was 25 m2

The client wanted to make part of the balcony of the living space, which is not contrary to the design of the house. To do this, we had to first solve three major problems:

- Preserve the free flow of fresh air
- Place the air conditioner
- To increase the heating power

These problems we have decided due to:

- The installation of double glazing
- Create a small room for air conditioners
- Installation of powerful radiators.

In addition, the Client has set the task to make the most spacious room with a minimum of interior items.

All these factors will affect the future of the interior aesthetics - we chose the style of Urban.
The general mood of the interior is transmitted through the use of dark tones in the interior and unusual for a residential materials: facade tiles, stucco, a large number of front windows, which we closed with black shutters, black huge radiators that resemble urban pipes and even black garage shutters, behind which hidden lockers.

Final Touch overall style added views - the house is located on the banks of the Moscow River with views of the industrial landscapes.
