A luxury house for true connoisseurs who don't fall for shiny out-of-the-box solutions
Total surface area
A client had come with a finished project from another studio. They didn't like the designed facades and wanted something unusual and creative.
In this project we employed a few techniques that have been in the use for thousands of years, and mixed them with modern architecture.
Semi-circular arched elements of the southern style were borrowed from Egypt; narrow windows reminiscent of medieval castle architecture; and a few elements from the Roman culture.
The elongated shape of the house was determined by a square lot. The central element of the project is a terrace with an awning. It is a separate structure connected with the house with a glass junction.
It's as if the house rises around it: here you can see a parlor, a squash court, a sauna. You can come here from any block or from outside.
On the second floor the terrace is surrounded by a parapet with exquisite narrow windows. As a result you have sort of a viewing point where you can spend an evening under open sky, feast eyes on the lot while being away from prying eyes.
An interesting detail — a skylight that fills the central wind lobby between the house, a squash court and the terrace with natural light.
Everything is made of the same material. These days they rarely employ such solutions.
The awning from the gates to the building is connected with the house and leans on the fence. On one hand it's a functional element that allows to exit a car without getting wet under rain, and on the other it's an eye-catching element of architecture.
It also connects a northern faсade with the fence bringing all composition together.
This allowed me to experiment. The house is both conservative and flashy, and it gives that premium impression.
Our client wasn't blindly following the tends. They wanted to make their house unique, not another over-the-top and out-of-the-box solution.
For true connoisseurs, this house is like a Rolls-Royce: it never follow trends, yet it will always look splendid.
