Stolitsa shopping center is now open in Moscow
The interiors of the local shopping complex were designed by Blank Architects. The concept of the new project reflects the idea of shopping as a lifestyle. One of the aims of the project was to create a simple and cozy atmosphere of a local community, on the one hand, well-known and on the other- brand new. The interiors include natural materials – wood used in the decoration and furniture elements create comfort and emphasize the character of the shopping center. The design of floor coverings uses a common pattern of gray triangles and a white background: the scale of the ornament increases from the first to the third floor of the shopping center. This solution allows to solve the problem of intuitive navigation and makes it easier for the user to navigate in the space. Light becomes an important element of the design: in the shopping center's galleries, laconic pendant lights repeat the geometry of the pedestrian path. The atrium is decorated with a "raining" light installation. In the design of the food court, the built-in light is used in the slats and creates the rhythm of the space. Separated areas of the food court are highlighted by lamps with lampshades, balloon lamps and suspended cylindrical lighting.
