Traditional Japanese interiors and natural landscapes influenced the design of this apartment in Moscow, which was recently renovated by local studio M17. One of the focal points in the design is a 19-metre-long polygonal wall made of wood veneer panels. The wall’s faceted appearance is intended to depict rough stone mountains. It runs along the entire length of the apartment, concealing the main entrance, utility rooms, kitchen and wardrobe from view. The middle section of the home functions as a large open space, accommodating a relaxation and dining area. A small indoor garden separates the bedroom and bathroom from the communal area. Walls inside both of these spaces were covered in wooden planks inspired by traditional Japanese housing. To the right of the garden, partition walls were replaced with opaque sliding panels that open up to reveal a tea ceremony room.
