The studio of Belarussia, led by architects Maksim Vavinski, Tatiana Kashuro and Alexandr Zhmakin, wanted to challenge the simple industrial looks that characterize most of the offices. They opted by keeping some spaces with raw finishes and also added flashes of color and texture, as well as the presence of many objects that reflect the taste and history of the team.
“It is safe to say that this space gathers up our professional preferences and is a physical expression of personal philosophy in design,” said the trio. “Here, one can find a number of techniques and objects that were used in our projects. Things like this are very dear to us. They fill the workspace with personal history and additional internal meaning.”
The space is divided into two sections, the larger one contains a workspace, a small lounge area, and a materials library. The smaller side features a second workspace and a generous kitchen and social area. Every wall of the studio has a rough plaster finish, but the lower section has been painted with a rich blue tone. A beautiful matching effect that can be seen on curtains that stretch floor-to-ceiling.
The place features beautiful and mesmerizing color contrasts with every element in the room. Colors like blue and salmon-pink bring life to the room. The lounge area features a red chair and stool, and also as striking and unique backdrop full of artworks, particularly a large painting by Belarusian artist Zakhar Kudin.
The position of the painting is described by the architects as “a rather fin de siècle image, a modern interpretation of the Barcelona Daybed by Mies van der Rohe set against a Matisse story”. Also added “The bodacious spirit of the painting reminds of the Fauvists’ works at the beginning of the previous century,” they said. “Such expression organically smooths the restrained character of the space.”
The floor is made of a rough concrete screed, painted in a very light shade of grey. The space also features a small glass-block partition, that separates a private study desk from a tall chest of drawers, and huge plants.
