Futago House ("twins" in Japanese) consists of two identical parts: these are our twin brothers, who proudly raise their console heads and look in each other's eyes. 30,000 tons of soil — and they rise above the landscape like dumb observers sharing one heartbeat for two. The customers very clearly expressed his wishes: to get a modern and minimalist house that will become a new stage of their life after the years of being the fans of the classics. They left us to do our job without interfering in the creative process. "This house has become a continuation of nature and vice versa - its opposition. Futago is a blank sheet of paper in which tons of concrete, glass, passion, and the power of the human spirit have merged. All to admire the beauty around and learn to see the beauty inside”, comments the founder of Sergey Makhno Architects studio, architect Serhii Makhno.

The principal decision was to order the material from a Ukrainian manufacturer, because the logistics of concrete is complex and not ecological, especially in such sizes.
