Nata Istomina | 莫斯科Baraban青年旅舍
Inspired by the works of Russian avant-garde, we decided to experiment on this topic. To present the interior as a picture, where all the elements – architectural structures, design, furniture and lighting are linked in one holistic image. So, when designing walls, rather unusual niches, arched openings, etc. appeared. The abstract painting of the walls, combined with the decorative finish of the old brickwork, became a vivid reception reflecting the idea. It was also important for us to bring the elements of the game and humor into the interior, to think out sign, individual “features” of the place.
emphasis was placed on the common area. We wanted to create a space for different formats of interaction between guests. Thus, a cinema hall, lounge space with games, a fairly spacious kitchen, a computer zone and a convenient reception appeared. Of course in the hostel format it is very important to consider not only the common areas, but also the space where the guest sleeps. These rooms turned out to be small, but they all meet the necessary standards. Most importantly, we designed the bed model especially for the project. This is a two-tier structure.
Such a personal “house” in which you can feel calm, closed from prying eyes. Here you can sleep, work on a laptop, calmly read a book, etc. Also, the hostel has a family room designed where it is convenient for a couple with a child and a VIP room with a private bathroom.
