Text description provided by the architects. Modern homes have long ceased to fit into the idea of "four walls" or "box-like”. Now the environment is free to come into the house, and the house seamlessly expands its boundaries, capturing the surrounding area.

One of the most effective and common methods to achieve this effect are the panoramic windows , which make the boundary of the property  implicit.  In this project, the hose comes out not only because of the glazing facade, but also due to the structural elements of the roof extending the scope of the building and creating a complex three -dimensional game.

These elements deserve special attention, as performed here is not only functional but also decorative being the basis of architectural and artistic composition. The idea behind the design of the ceiling - a kind of skeleton of the roof-   was to show that the beauty of the carrier core is not closed to any decor. This can be called a desire for "honesty" in the design.

The very structural member transmitting the load from the roof to the walls are the designed beams of laminated wood, painted in white. The roof is covered in ceramic tiles and filed toned board. One of the main requests of the house was the presence of a fireplace that would occupy a central and important role. The architects managed to solve this problem and the home is designed around this fireplace axis. 

On either side of the fireplace we installed large stained-glass windows, so when warm outside they can be opened and the boundaries between the house and its surroundings are almost completely erased.

Another unifying element between interior and exterior is the finishing materials - textured hand-molded bricks- which are duplicated on facades and in interior decoration . The walls of the house are made of ceramic blocks.

With regard to the furniture , it combines both the quality factor by massive and noble materials and certain " playfulness " in the forms and a combination of textures and colors. The bathroom looks more restrained . Solid granite, nothing more and nothing catchy . The role of the fence section performs gravel, rolled in between the two grids that It looks very colorful.
