Moscow – Maxim Kashin of studio Maxim Kashin Architects immersed visitors into a purple suprematist space inspired by the iconic ideals and theories of the iconic 1910’s Russian Avant-Garde.
“SUPREME means Dominance and Superiority in Roman Latin, that is a perfect word to describe the supremacy of colour over the form and space, which is used by every human to limit himself or herself.” Explain Kashin to Archipanic. “Inspired by this theory we designed a space influencing the perception of regular forms where you can feel free”.
The monochromatic pavilion has purple gradient background, where dark purple fades slowly into light purple thus creating a three-dimensional perception of the space. The studio decided to work with only one colour to strengthen the perception of abstract space and focus visitor’s attention on it only.
Geometrical shapes used in the pavilion are mainly triangles and rectangles and are placed on different levels to create a volumetric room, emphasising the effect of colour gradient and let the visitors interact with the space – sit and walk around.
The floor is a mirrored surface to enlarge the space. The result is an ethereal space, a purple relaxing limbo disconnected by time. The pavilion was part of the exhibition ArchMoscow held earlier this year in Moscow.
Maxim Kashin Architects infuses the latest stylistic trends, advanced technology and established architectural traditions into every project. Combining the fundamentals of architecture and design with extensive construction experience, Maxim Kashin Architects’s detailed approach to every unique project ensures that the relevancy of its homes and interiors will endure for multiple generations.
