Concept
We proposed to preserve the surrounding landscape and organically fit the buildings onto the lot with a 3 meters slope.
Project Architecture
The house, a bathhouse and a terrace were combined into a single space and located on a hill.
We paid particular attention to the terrace which levels the height difference on the lot. In this case, one area of ​​the terrace is open, and the other is under an awning.
The awning looks light and aesthetically pleasing. High-strength reinforced concrete structures make it as reliable as possible.
Austere laconic forms, a combination of vertical and horizontal lines and a large number of panoramic glazing.
The simplicity of constructive solutions is compensated by textured materials of the facades: larch planken, architectural concrete, Equitone fiber cement panels, decorative plaster.
Floor Plan
All technical rooms are located in the northern part of the building. From the windows of the living rooms, through panoramic glazing, a view on the age-old spruce trees of Meshchersky Park opens up.
The floor plan is exceptionally functionality-oriented. Corridors take up a minimum of space. Each room has its own purpose.

Designing a lot with an elevated position is a challenge for an architect. Those with a more traditional approach to construction could level the lot and create an ordinary home. We respect nature and support the "eco-friendly" trend.

That's why we left the slope in its natural form and neatly integrated the structure into the landscape. The house has become a real decoration of the area and a source of pride for the owners.
