The house, surrounded by vast expanses of fields, is located very close to the bustling Kiev. It is strict, laconic, functional, but at the same time respects the nature around. Working on house layout, we wanted to get away from the feeling of an enclosed space, and open the house to viewpoints as much as possible, to create the effect of barrier-free movement between the street and the interior space. Therefore, the house has 4 exits – on each side of the house. One connects it with the entrance to the territory, the second – with parking, the third – a short way to the bath, the fourth – access to the terrace from the living room. According to the plan, the house is divided into two blocks, between which there is a long corridor, which will be used as a gallery for paintings. To add light, we made a full-length anti-aircraft lamp. Along the entire facade facing the site, there is a terrace with a stunning view of the territory and the fields behind it. Inasmuch as the house is at the highest point of the plot, the viewing distance is dramatically increased.
The decoration used warm wood with planks, light stucco and large-format porcelain tiles with a rusty metal texture. These three different materials emphasize the division of architecture into large volumes.
