The lobby, hallways, and other spaces are all sustainable natural materials imbued with nature with a natural green wall. “I refer to the project as embracing nature and technology in our 21st century and it is a pleasure for me to contribute to the interiors of this project, one that further develops the legend about the seven hills”. Karim commented. HILL8 emerges as the pinnacle of renewable and eco-friendly metropolitan efforts in the center of Moscow. The interiors will be fluid and organic, taking cues from nature to create a serene, comfortable environment for future living. Karim continues: “Working with City XXI was a pleasure. They really understood my vision and strove to create a truly unique environment concerned about every detail with precision and quality. The interior public spaces of HILL8 actively speak of the legend of the 7 Hills of Moscow, where there are references to the hilly terrains dissected by numerous rivers and ravines. The lobby is primed for rejuvenation, privacy, and luxury.”
