From the architect. The site is located not far from Moscow, on a steep hillside. The inclinated terrain has been minimally transformed - in fact, a building built-in to the hill.

The upper level is a separate white cube, cantilevering over a big span. Here you find the main entrance to this cube, and also a spacious living room with fireplace, a cabinet and a large terrace.

The lower level is designed for private zones, it is almost entirely going into the hill. Only one wall has a lot of glazing, looking to the meadows and the nearby river. The inevitable sunlight problem was solved with the help of an inclined clerestory.
