BH1 house

Family house, 348 m²

Sochi, Russia


To design a house mainly of concrete in dark, neutral colors is the main wish of the client. Private country residence for year-round living with a working studio and the ability to accommodate up to 10 guests. The adjacent territory includes a covered space - a terrace, a shallow pond for relaxation, and it was also necessary to create a high monumental fence to maintain privacy and a sense of complete seclusion. The house is surrounded by clean horizontal surfaces without much landscaping. The water surface used in the design as a form or solid volume interacts with other volumes. One of the enclosing walls seems to be standing on the water.
