Text description provided by the architects. Damir Ussenov and his architectural firm "Lenz Architects" designed a villa in the foothills of Almaty. The main aim of the architect was to create a separate, isolated and safe space, while making it possible to enjoy the wildlife.

The unique metal framework allows natural light to enter the interior, bypassing the dense thickets and difficult terrain. The facade consists of dynamic aluminum panels which using an electronic mechanism can close windows and isolate the house from the environment, providing security and soundproofing.

Panels are treated with white plaster EIFS (Exterior Insulation and Finishing Systems) which have thermal insulation properties and sanitizers.

The house, which resembles a shell, includes a large studio with a kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and a relaxation room. A spiral staircase leads to an open and comfortable guest bedroom.
