SHH was commissioned by the private owners of a new-build villa (by architects Kaufmann House), located in a gated community on the western edges of Moscow, to create the villa’s ultra-luxurious interior architecture, design and decoration scheme. The new space-plan by SHH impacted on the overall plan, which was changed accordingly before building began. The villa, built into a hillside and laid out over four storeys, boasts very dramatic proportions, including an entry level with a glazed double-height living room, with views out onto a communal lake, whilst a single-level 4.5m high dining room is inset within the larger box space and edged with a dramatic 3m-wide aquarium wall. The overall feel of the interior is contemporary classic, with a pale and neutral palette, very high-end treatments and finishes and dramatic crystal chandeliers throughout, suspended from polished plaster and silver-leaf ceilings.
