A Variety of Finishes Add Textural Intrigue to This Renovated Russian Apartment



This Saint Petersburg apartment is an exquisite celebration of texture and color.

Light and dark herringbone parquetry combine to create a dynamic dining area.

INT2 architecture renovated a 2,300-square-foot apartment on the top floor of an early nineteenth-century revenue house in the Russian city of Saint Petersburg into a stylish, texturally intriguing short-term holiday property that can comfortably accommodate up to five guests.

The Saint Petersburg-based architects used deep, dark colors for the walls and ceilings, and they incorporated a variety of interesting finishes—including plywood, teak, walnut, quartz, cement tiles, and ceramic granite—into the new space.

The living room features light wood herringbone parquet.

The apartment consists of a living room, kitchen, study, laundry room, steam room, and two bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms.

The living room and kitchen, which are located within an open-concept common space, are differentiated with light and dark wood floors. Light-colored herringbone parquet is used for the living area, while dark horizontally laid walnut parquet forms the floor of the kitchen.   

The open-concept living space is filled with natural light.
