Literally all flats for the rich in Moscow are currently sold without interior walls - 'shell-and-core', just as offices. The only remaining difference between an office building and an apartment building is the presence of balconies or glazed veranda's and multiple stand pipes that enable a variety of interior solutions. This phenomenon is radically transforming the practice of housing design. There is a rigid division between the shell, a structure that gives equal conditions to all inhabitants, and the interior, that is built according to the specific wishes of the individual client. This division is also present in the architectural profession - arcitects can be divided into so-called ob'emshiki - mostly older architects, working in established big firms and responsible for the construction of the buildings, and interiershiki - young architects and designers, establishing thier own small architectural firms catering the wishes of their rich clients. This publication shows these two architectural practives - four recently completed Moscow apartment buildings with free floorplans, and four interiors. A round table converstaion with interior and exterior architects and a historical excursion into the meaning of the apartment for the Russian soul completes the presentation of this fascinating theme.
