Striking Moscow Apartment Hides an Architect's Private Office

This compact 420-square-foot apartment owes its unusual shape to its location: directly within the tall, curving attic of a mansard roof. The architects of buro5 exploited this vertical volume to install a mezzanine level that hosts an extra bedroom and home office. The apartment's black, white, and red palette was inspired by the 20th century avant-garde artist Kazimir Malevich, a pioneer of abstract, geometric art, and the eye-catching black, white, and plywood kitchen—custom crafted by design studio Fineobjects—was artfully inspired by Piet Mondrian's gridded paintings. Like the minimalist interior, the modernist reference points are on point.
