On May 18, the mansion of the Lila restaurant hosted a presentation of the new DUO clubhouse of the V2Group and Hutton companies, an object of reconstruction of the historic building Kokorevskoye Compound on Sofiyskaya Embankment.
The architecture of the new part of the house was developed by the Italian office Marco Casamonti. The modern DUO facade consists of two parts: the first is a restored part of the original structure, which has survived to this day, the second is a new interpretation. In the center of the façade there is an arch that connects the historical part of the building with the modern one.
The event was attended by Alena Doletskaya, Margarita Pushkina, Andrey Malakhov, Ilya and Valentina Davydik, Alexander Antonov, Elina and Galaktion Tabidze, Dmitry and Alina Pinsky, Anna Andronova, Alexandra Lekomtseva, Kristina Krasnyanskaya, Marianna Maksimovskaya, Vladimir and Alexandra Timokhin, Eduard and Felix Berman, Vadim Dymov and Evgenia Zelenskaya, Anastasia Ryabtsova, Yulia and Artem Akimov, Nina Galitskaya and Alexander Perepelkin.
As part of the evening, there was a performance by the author of the production group Arete, which was based on the play by Evgeny Grishkovets and Anna Mathison “The House”. These are arguments about duality and the connection between the past and the future, dreams and their implementation. The director was Viktor Ryzhakov, former artistic director of the Sovremennik Theater and winner of the Golden Mask Award. Danila Kozlovsky, Rodion Averyanov, Sergei Apollonov, Maria Lapshina and Ksenia Chigina took part in the production.
Especially for the evening, the set menu was created by the brand chef of the Lila restaurant project and gastronomic outlets in GES-2, Regis Trigel. DJ Monoplay was responsible for the event’s music.
