Moscow based design studio Crosby Studios have recently redesigned a two-bedroom apartment into an open-plan, striking monochrome Brooklyn-style loft, in the heart of the Russian capital. The original 1900s interior ceiling plaster, was stripped away revealing industrial textured concrete beams, interior walls were taken away to open the space and create an airy feeling with white resin flooring added throughout.  The works of American artist Donald Judd and Russian avant-garde architect Konstantin Melnikov were among the studios design inspirations when approaching the project, with wanting to create an atmosphere of a hipster warehouse in Greenpoint or West Village in NYC. The design team also went on to create and build much of the furniture, including the kitchen, coffee tables, sink, cupboards and glass partitions among other details.
