Margraf, the Venetian company active in the production and working of marble and natural stone, takes part in a prestigious luxury residential project built in Moscow in 2015, organized by the international developer Restavracia.
With a total area of 91,420 m2, the Knightsbridge Private Park designed by the architect Oleg Rybak is a symbol of the cultural ferment of the capital city, and the rebound of luxury real estate in Russia.
The impressive complex is located three kilometers from Red Square, in the prestigious residential district of Khamovniki, known the world over for its avenues of fashion boutiques, green parks and exclusive homes.
The five buildings of the development have an area of 49,000 m2, inside a two-hectare park created by the designer Chris Beardshaw, and include a wellness center with swimming pool, gym and spa, a kindergarten, a lounge with restaurant, cafes and exclusive shops for the homeowners.
On the outside, Knightsbridge Private Park reprises the facades in English neo-classical style of the London quarter of the same name, revisited in a modern way. To boost prestige, 20,000 m2 of Margraf marble have been installed, in thickness ranging from 3 to 26 cm for the ventilated facades and decorative features (frames, windows, corbels, spheres, columns, etc…).
The architect has selected two different types of material, with a polished finish: Vrataza, with a uniform beige color, and Thala, with a uniform gray hue.
Inside, all the apartments and penthouses, ranging from 180 to 520 m2 in size, have been done by leading international designers like David Linley, Andrew Martin and Eric Valeev, with natural materials and low-emissions technologies (the project meets BREEAM® standards, the most famous and important international method of certification of eco-sustainable buildings).
