From the architect. A small plot of building land (600 square meters) is situated in a district of private houses in the city of Tyumen. The task for the architects was to design a two-section house for two brothers. The authors have fulfilled the basic requirements to design a separate entrance and provide car accessto each section, have a small terrace on the south side of the house and a lawn in the backyard that could be shared by the owners, and include a parking lot for two cars along each section.
The house is designed to accommodate three or four people in each block 97 square meters in area. There are day stay rooms on the ground floor: a living room, a kitchen, an office, a bathroom, a boiler room, and a storage room under the stairs. The second floor holds two bedrooms and a bathroom.
On the side facades decorated with dark gray profiled sheets there are no windows due to the close proximity of adjacent buildings. The front and rear facades are covered with pale wood and white composite panels. Rusty metal is used in the decoration of the staircase. The architects extensively used local building materials.
All external engineering equipment including automatic shutter boxes is concealed under the wooden facade to keep the appearance laconic. The ledges of walls have niches for outdoor units of air conditioners. The downpipe is also hidden inside the wall.
The roof to wall attachment was specially designed for this project. The architects initially made the necessary drawings and a 3D model; then, a full-size model was elaborated.
