    Konstantin Melnikov, a Russian architect and painter, designed and built the Melnikov House in 1927-1929. Two intersecting cylindrical towers designed with a pattern of hexagonal windows.

    His flow of commissions in 1926-1927 provided enough money to finance a three-story house of his dreams. At this time, many well-to-do Russians were lured into building their own city houses; Melnikov was one of the few who managed to retain his property after the fall of New Economic Policy.  His request for land (790 square meters) had few chances to pass the district commission; to his surprise, a working class commissioner supported him, saying that "we can build public buildings anytime and anywhere, but we may never see this unusual house completed if we reject Melnikov".  The city endorsed Melnikov's draft as an experimental, one-of-a-kind project.

About this Blog

I love the connection between interior design, graphics, photography, landscape design and architecture in the way that brings spaces to life when these design disciplines are executed in concert with one another. I love the experience of travel, and amazing spaces around the world. There is glamour and a pulse about Interior design that creates creative energy for me. It’s the blend of luxury, travel, fashion, branding and place-making that is new in every project.
