Guapa Flower Shop

Eduard Eremchuk as Architects
Guapa is located in the historical building which was build in 1928 by Michail Kondratyev in constructivism style and called New way of life. 
 
The main task was to create a unique flower shop avoiding all associations with typical ones like salvaged wood, dark cozy colours, pots and warm light inside. 
 
Flower shop is on the ground floor and has only one window, that’s why we’ve created the ceiling as a full lightning surface which was inspired by Kubrick’s film Cosmic Odyssey. 
 
The whole interior is monochrome this не aesthetics come from contemporary art galleries with white walls and bright lightning. The idea was to make a space which will not disturb a viewers eyes from flowers, their shapes and colours. Only one small room leading to the bathroom stands out all purple. 
 
A new wave of architecture design in Russia meets with soviet history representing by old apartment building, where the flower shop is located.
Curve walls were inspired by the facade of the building and creates an integrity of interior and exterior. 
 
In the main room there is a big four meters long working table made of stainless steel. A silver volume divides the space between the public front and the private back, where storage and refrigerator for flowers are. 
 
There is a small bunch to the left where visitors can read art books and magazines waiting for their bouquets.
