    Default House N in Moscow

    Bold Modern Architecture Details Adorning House N in Moscow

    Speaking a clear and autonomous architectural language, House N completed by studio 4a Architekten in Moscow is an original re-interpretation of the existing building initially constructed in the 1990s. The clients requested a bright and spacious residence that would accommodate a family of four, as well as numerous art objects in a living area of 350 square meters. An impressive addition was envisioned by: a generously glazed structural shell with a front ramp creating a new, eye-catching entrance.

    Welp, I'm packing up and moving to Moscow! LOVE this place. Love the red couch and the funky chandeliers. Love all of it except that teeny weeny little grill on the porch, because it looks like an afterthought, and it's way too small (for my family). I'd have to get rid of the clear plastic dining room chairs, though. Those can go on the patio and I'll get some decent ones for that room.

    This ain't half bad. It has some of those eye-rolling Russian elements - that big portrait (of one of the owners I imagine) is hideous, the lucite chairs, the brass trim on the ramp - that aren't so great. On the other hand some of that character works, like the chandeliers, the big block coffee tables, the dacha roof and the dramatic spiral staircase ( I wouldn't own those stairs but it looks pretty good.)

    tasteless and awful.

    That red Foosball table is cool. I think I would hate having a bathtub by my bed.

    The portrait is Frank Sinatra with a glimpse of Sammy Davis Jr. Russian gangsters love the Rat Pack.

    Remove all the furniture and I could do something with the house. The used condom chandelier is special.

    Hideous and vulgar. And it's in Moscow.

    what's the point of a ramp with steps at the bottom?

    It's easy to have a spiritual home some place like Moscow when your physical home is somewhere much nicer. Anyway it was more my dad than me, I'm just your average lefty vego.

    Oh now I can't see the chandelier any other way. Many thanks for that.

    Ah, that IS Sinatra! Terrible art nonetheless.

    Oh my, I hadn't noticed. That makes no sense...at all.

    What is it with Russians and lucite?
    i like the vaguely sputnik-esque barbecue and the railing on the stairs and the upstairs landing and the dining table and that's pretty much it.
