Interior Design | Residential

Inspired by an old photograph, the historic Barkli Gallery (2017) has been reimagined to present a contemporary twist on the historic heritage of Moscow. Working within the parametres of pre-existing architecture that finds its origins at the start of the twentieth century, the Barkli Gallery became an effort to preserve a sense of history. The areas designed were the lobby, lift cabins and corridors. Utilising a warm, light grey colour palette and soft carpets, carved wood and marbles, a bright and sophisticated, yet soft and intimate style is expressed. The interior design is accented by precious materials including a leaded glass entrance, wooden wall panelling, textile tapestry and draping and brass. Along with its oversized artwork, the Le Roi Soleil chandelier is the highlight of this legendary space.
