The owner of this apartment has a solid developer experience behind his back and under his feet. The Moscow Tower, on the 76th floor of which there are apartments, was built by the Capital Group, and Edward Berman is its co-owner. He is one of the key developers of the Moscow “City” and therefore decided to settle here. He managed to live in many places and, according to the architect
The view of the penthouse is really breathtaking. And it's not even that within a radius of several thousand kilometers, these are the only apartments separated from the earth by three hundred meters. Crazy ornament, which the Syrian artisans adorn the walls and ceilings. Impressive stuck in the air designer bed, turned into an entourage in such a carpet-plane. And in the evenings, if the sky is clear and clear, a real light drama is played out in the living room: the relief wall, trimmed with copper foil and varnish, is literally ignited by the rays of the setting sun, burst through the panoramic windows. If it is overcast in the sky, then the role of the star itself is taken by perforated lamps, from which the patterned shadows scatter in all directions. The ideas of most interior solutions belong to the customer, and he asked the architect to concentrate on working on the main room of the apartment - the living room. The task was to overcome its external similarity with the public interior and to make a cyclopean-sized space habitable.
As a result, the living room was divided into several zones. There appeared a sofa, an ornamental pool with a fountain and sculptures, a place for a hookah, a bar in the form of a piano, and a fireplace. The columns and the wall make the interior more interesting: they seem to be made up of huge cubes. This hints at the shape of the building where the apartments are located; thus, between the architecture of the skyscraper and the penthouse at its top there was an obvious logical connection.
