While designing the interiors for Mishka Bosco Bar, the Sundukovy sisters were given one key specification – to maintain architectural harmony with the grand Red Square across from it. Rather than saturating the walls with Russian-Revivalist elements, Irina and Olga Sundukovy adopted a minimalist design approach – yet accentuated the space with expressive details which link back to the unique historic heritage of the location. “The key was to not to overfill the walls with legacy, but rather purify the space.” said the duo. With a mere three months in hand, they created a space both congruous with its environment and retentive of a distinct identity. Over 2000 dimmable light bulbs skirt the walls and ceiling, echoing the façade illumination of GUM – the iconic 19th-century shopping center in Moscow which houses the space. Revealed magnificently through outer windows, they draw in guests with their comfort in the evenings. To blur the boundaries between the interior and exterior, the team used decorative plasterwork that was made tto look raw and unfinished like that of GUM.
