Gallery-Like Space Inspired by Surrounding Nature & Natural Materials
Project of the Week
This week’s instalment of the #SBIDinspire interior design series features stunning CGI visualisations for a 12-apartment residential building located 100 metres from the sandy coastline of the Baltic Sea. Neoklasika designed a welcoming entry lobby and hallways for the project; enclosed by the pine forest, the glass facade of the building lets nature flow in through the windows. The elegant proportions, nuanced colour palette and natural materials give the gallery-like interior a timeless touch. The lobby will work as an in-house library and host temporary art exhibitions and installations to give a dynamic atmosphere. The 3D model includes full interior visualisation of three floors and the surrounding landscape. The masterful and accurate representation of the interior project and the visualisation of the lighting scenography in both day and night-time views invites the viewer to imagine the future lobby in great detail and at different times of day.

What was the client’s brief?
Neoklasika was commissioned to design a welcoming entry lobby and hallways for a twelve apartment residential building located hundred meters from the sandy coastline of the Baltic Sea. The lobby is planned to function as an in-house library and to host temporary art exhibitions, providing a dynamic creative ambience and contemporary space.
What inspired the interior design of the project?
Being enclosed by a pine forest, the glass facade lets the nature enter through the windows. The inspiration of drawing visual parallels to the shapes and textures of the surrounding coastline landscape came quite naturally. The elegant proportions, nuanced colour palette and natural materials give the gallery – like interior a timeless touch. The wooden wall panels and the metallic structural beams resemble the tree trunks in the nearby forest, the mirror and glass reflections resemble ever-changing water surface and the light stone floor brings the feeling of seaside into the interior. Passing through the lobby, the art-déco-inspired leather furniture is reminiscent of seashells washed up on the shore.
What was the toughest hurdle your team overcame during the project?
We wanted to reflect the dynamics between the inside and outside to the maximum, showcasing the essence of the project. An intricate 3D model was created to visualise the multi-layered composition of materials, interior elements and colours. It includes full interior visualisation of three floors and the surrounding landscape. The representation of the interior project and the visualisation of the lighting scenography in day and night-time views invite to imagine the future lobby in the greatest detail. Detailing and modelling the vast amount of interior details, custom-made elements and furniture in our in-house rendering studio was a time-consuming but very rewarding part of the project.
What was your team’s highlight of the project?
Achieving the balance between the grand scale of the lobby with a light and welcoming atmosphere was a personal success. One of the main project goals was to create a space which acts as a platform for highlighting the dynamics of the surrounding nature. The large mirror panel was used strategically to reflect the changes in seasons and the weather, creating an ever-evolving live painting.
