Text description provided by the architects. House A is located near the border of Minsk.

The main objective was to project a comfortable and functional home for one family. The house had to be designed without unnecessary decoration with the use of "clean" natural and beautifully-aging materials, such as wood, concrete, glass. Later, the owner of the house has formulated the title of this style as "functional minimalism".

The house is a cube, embedded into the hillside. Wall materials are reinforced concrete (the outer walls of the 1st floor) and a brick. Floor slabs are monolithic reinforced concrete. Vertical surfaces between the windows and wooden facades are made of cement-fiber panels with concealed fastening. The main material of the facade finishing is larch saturated with a substance, which protects from ultraviolet radiation, but does not prevent natural aging. This allows the house to appear differently in each of the seasons.

On the ground floor is a garage, hallway, storage room, boiler room, exit the sauna room to an outdoor terrace with a swimming pool, which is adjacent to the house on the east side. On the second floor are two bedrooms, living room and kitchen-dining room. Fireplace in the living room with a bar is designed according to the proportions of the facade of the house. The lower part of the fireplace is a sheet of stainless steel, hovering above the floor.

On the east side of the house, a living room and a kitchen-dining room have access to an outdoor terrace with swimming pool and barbecue area. Cover terrace made of larch. The sculpture, which combines the functions of a barbecue and a table, was made of stainless steel with a thickness of 10mm with inserts in teak.

Product Description. With Schüco Structural Glazing I wanted to create the effect of a solid glass cube held on all four sides with massive wooden surfaces.
