Concept

The house is the embodiment of minimalism. With its geometric accuracy, it is built in a single line, in a laconic and strict style.
There are no superfluous and excess elements in it, every detail has become a part of the whole composition.

Project architecture
The project is built along the road under a single awning, including a parking area for two cars. Both residential and household parts are located under the same roof.
Мы смогли обеспечить нестандартные планировочные решения благодаря сложному конструктиву. Каждый этаж не связан со следующим несущими стенами или колоннами. Их оси и железобетонные конструкции не совпадают.
From the outside, the whole house resembles a ship — this is its key architectural feature. Giving consideration to the fact that it is built near the water, it has its own charm.

Layout
The house layout is designed in such a way that every space can be easily accessible, similar to a regular apartment.
The parking area is conveniently connected to the hallway and the dressing room. The combined kitchen, the living room with panoramic windows and the river views can be easily accessed from the parking area and the dressing room.

The study can be accessed from the kitchen’s right corner, the study has panoramic windows and access to the terrace, which is decorated in the form of a deck. The terrace can be accessed from the bedroom as well.
The house is a one-storied building, which makes it even more minimalistic. This is a trendy and modern solution that suits families of different ages.

Project features
The house project is naturally combined with the surrounding landscape. Its shape follows the contour of the whole area.
Simple and natural layout simplifies moving around the area, making the house suitable for both seasonal and permanent living.
The river nearby influenced the project’s architecture. It gave birth to the idea of an elongated shape and a terrace-deck.

Author’s word
This is a stylish project where we immediately managed to find mutual understanding with the client — the layout was agreed at the very first meeting.
The project is an elegant and a multifunctional house, beautifully designed. Here everything is in its place, as if the villa, the river and the rest of the landscape appeared simultaneously.
