Experimental project Zhukovka 49 by Architectural bureau PH.D counts with BRABBU’s designs
Zhukovka 49 was an experimental project by Russian Architectural bureau PH.D founded in 2003 by Lana Grineva in Moscow. What was required here was the fully redesigning of the interior of a mansion house with an area of 1,200m² in a short time period and with a strict budget due to the requirement of placing it rapidly on the market.
The requirements for the project, which often tend to happen, challenged even more the design team. New colours, combinations, textures and materials had to be selected. It was in this context that BRABBU’s designs were selected to be part of this residential project by PH.D.
The pieces chosen from BRABBU collection were: LALLAN coffee table I made with four different materials and finishes as palisander veneer, black lacquer, polished brass and antique brass; INCA Armchair made in velvet and legs in ebony wood veneer with glossy varnish; also included was SIKA Armchair with golden polished details and legs in high gloss black lacquer.
The distinctive feature of PH.D is the masterful work with colors, tasteful mix of natural materials, textures and scales and that totally recalls BRABBU’s identity. Bringing nature inside in a classy and elegant way is what characterizes the brand’s projects.
The ground floor of the mansion is open to the house guests: here are located the reception room, dining room, two guest rooms, a cinema, sports hall and spa. Two formerly small and dark rooms have been restructured to accommodate a sauna and Turkish bath. Panoramic glazing throws open the surrounding landscape at a glance, and the spa, finished in cumaru wood, enjoys direct access to the terrace. All of BRABBU’s pieces were included in this floor.
The second terrace is accessed via doors from the master bedroom on the first floor, entirely and completely reserved for the owners. Alongside three children´s bedrooms with en-suite wardrobes and bathrooms, an expansive playroom and study have been envisaged here, with views of the surroundings.
