Why it is called Almandine?

"Almandine is the hardest and the most common variety of red or red-violet garnets. Almandines can be of a cherry, raspberry, purple and brown-red colour. There are also totally black almandines which are rare."

The task is to make a bright and juicy interior for four family members.

The biggest difficulty at the design stage was a supporting monolithic concrete wall, with an opening, which is welded with metal, where absolutely nothing could be done. It became the starting point of the style, which determined not only zoning.

Redevelopment was made in a way as to smash the blocks of children and adults into different parts of the apartment. The entrance to the master bedroom with a bathroom and dressing room is hidden in an almandine wall with moldings. The entrance to the children's block with two rooms and a bathroom is a portal to a small corridor, which is more like an art room. It has only color and a watch with marble of the corresponding shade. Door color, ceiling color, wall color, portal color. Different materials and planes, but one color.

The important part is the portal, which is a copy of the portals, situated in the old mansions of Milan. The whole project is a combination of opposing materials, a combination of complex colors. Own concrete walls and carved portal, textured marbled porcelain tiles and ringing polyester coating of oak facades. Brass, starting plaster and crystal, "screaming" glossy stone floor and "silent" matte tiles. Wallpaper and black unplastered walls. Shining silk curtains and black linen.
