Moscow Terrace is a visualization of a real-world object, the design of which was performed by Olga Kolesnik from the bureau “Tsimailo, Lyashenko and Partners”, presented in the February 2013 edition of AD. The terrace is located in the penthouse on the 26th floor, and in order to avoid a strong wind it was decided to make it a covered. The design follows the modern minimalist style, significantly supplemented by several elements of traditional Japanese. Main ideas of these concepts are the extreme simplicity, the intentional neglect of accessories, the choice of space instead of furniture, the preference for natural light and the use of naturally occurring materials – the result is an amazingly harmonious living space with unobstructed circulating air and an abundance of light that sets the meditative atmosphere. The 26th floor provides stunning view of the city and panoramic glazing allows its unobstructed observation.
Dominant material, in spite of the impossibility of completely abandoning modern, is wood. The minimal use of furniture visually expands the space, creating a special feeling of the room as a place with its own world. Extremely laconic spacious interior, does not look emasculated, like the classical dojo, thanks to the addition of bonsai, which dilute monotony, while not violating the prescribed rigor and consistency. Ceiling glazing is designed in a way to diffuse incoming bright sun rays, as well as for additional cooling in the windows was inserted glass with a mirror effect. The Moscow Terrace design is an excellent example of an alloy of simplicity and functionality, supplemented by classical representations of Japanese philosophy of living space.
The main goal of visualization was to achieve similarity to the original object and preserve its mood – the image creates a feeling of a cloudy day similar to the original. Particular attention was paid to the parquet, the material of which was created procedurally without using any raster images. Another important detail was vegetation, the painstaking process of modeling bonsai was rewarded with an extremely realistic look.
