Interior design of Lux apartments of the Bariatinsky Palace (reconstruction of historical interiors adapted for the current use)

This series of articles on restoration, interior design and decoration of high-grade hotel apartments and public zones of The Palace Park Ensemble "Maryino" of Prince Bariatinsky, Kursk region. Design, reconstruction and restoration works were carried out by PROF PROJECT which includes the architectural department and the planning-and-design office under the head of Solovieva A.V. as a project manager and an architect.
From the begining of XXI century Palace Park Ensemble "Maryino" is a sanatorium (Property Management Department of President of Russian Federation). The Federal state budgetary institution "The sanatorium Maryino" is under the supervision of the Property Management Department of President of Russian Federation and a capital construction object in accordance with Presidential Decree 541, issued on October 29, 2015.
This publication is devoted to the redesign proposals for lux rooms of The Maryino Palace. The first variant represents a reconstruction of the historical interiors adapted for the current use.

The Palace Park Ensemble "Maryino" was built at the begining of  XIX century according to a project of Kursk's architect Carl Ivanovich Gofman. The ancient noble family Bariatinsky dates back to the legendary prince Ruruk. Maryino was called in honour of beautiful Princes Maria Fedorovna Bariatinsky the Prussian Countess and wife of Prince Ivan Ivanovich Bariatinsky. The Palace was meant to be the symbol of the greatness of Princely sort of Bariatinsky. It was in the reign of the Russian tsar Pavel the first.

The Bariatinsky Palace is a three-storied building with three differentiated parts of main building and two large single-storied outbuildings. The buildings are situated in a great scenery park with magnificent flower beds, round and oval lakes with islands and linked with the help of several bridges. Rotunda is located at one of them and the Lutheran Kirche is on the next one.

The aesthetic guide for visual conception of the Palace interiors  became well-preserved examples of Russian architecture and art: historical interiors of russian palaces, genre paintings, engravings, etching, book illustrations with elements of interior decoration, furnirure, lightings and scenes of daily and holyday life. I also used surviving archived materials concerning the building of the Palace, reference books, artistic and academic books and literature of domestic and foreign classical writers relating to the lifestyle of russian nobility.The chronological range of monitoring period covers the full range from second part of the XVIII century and concluding to the end of the XIX century. Particular attention was given to the style of interiors of Anichkov Palace and Yusupov Palace, Tsarskoselsky Palace at St. Petersburg created by Ippolito Monighetti; the mansion of Ekaterina Mikhailovna Dolgorukova, Her Highness Princess Yurevskaya, created by D.E. Yefimov and A.I. Klein; the palace the Grand Duke Vladimir Alexandrovich (House of Scientists in the Moscow) created and decorated by academician I.S. Kithner and academician of  V.A. Schroeter, the house of Count N.P. Rumyantsev by architect D.E. Yefimov and so on. I also looked through a lot of patterns of elite well-preserved historical furniture, vintage lighting, wooden finishings, plasters and mouldings, textiles, paintings, ornaments, carpets and rugs and et cetera. The artistic works by F.S. Rocotov, S.F. Galaktionov, N.I. Tihobrazov, N.N. Podkluchnikov were very helpful in understanding of original coloristic schemes in interior decoration.

The interiors of lux apartments of the Bariatinsky Palace were created and based on art reconstruction traditions of noble Russian interiors in the style of Russian neoclassicism including eclectical detailes of Barocco, Rococo and Empire styles and sometimes with delicate oriental coloring especially in textile, carpets and ornaments.
