Russian studio Oleg Klodt Architecture & Design restored an old house in the Rublevka suburb of Moscow, Russia. The 3-story residence now features generous living areas, floor-to-ceiling windows, plenty of designer furniture and a spa with relaxing views.

“Our client is a true design connoisseur who adores Soviet-era Constructivism and art from the early 20th century,” the designers said. “He set us the challenge of reconstructing an existing building and turning it into a country residence in the late-Constructivist style. The interiors were to correspond with the aesthetics from this period — a modern, functional approach replete with historic objects and ar2rk.”

The designers collected thousands of items, including vintage memorabilia and antiques from all over the world. By carefully combining these with modern replicas, it became possible to create an interior in keeping with the taste of the 1930s and 1940s.

In the living room, you notice the coffee table designed by Emmanuel Babled and the Bassam Fellows armchairs, which give the place a sumptuous feel. Every detail was painstakingly selected, even down to the electricity sockets. This carefully curated collection of heritage classics lives on as they are used in the family’s modern life.
