This project is in fact a large-scale reconstruction of a standard house of about 500 sq.m. The new volumes which have made its area thrice as large, have an expressive geometry and are finished by means of light-colored ceramic tiles. The finishing of the old building volume is larch – which is made specially for contrast.
The reconstruction has essentially changed the way the house looks and functions. The new part of the building represents a monolithic framework filled with foam concrete blocks and bricks. The layout of the center of the new part provided for a 16 meters high void which penetrates all three floors. On the top it is covered with a large light lamp with an area of about 25 sq.m Besides, the small winter garden located on the third floor between two offices is plentifully glazed. Complex spatial solutions required non-trivial engineering and design ideas: as most window openings are non-standard, in order to place double-glazed window axes, there was used a rotational laser. Besides, special drainage systems were developed: they are located not outside, but inside of the building, in specially allotted cavities.
The house also has open spaces – a maintained terrace on the second floor and a court yard which it protects from bad weather.
In total the explication has 62 rooms, including a small movie theater and a pool, a salt cave, a wardrobe for winter clothes, several children’s rooms, including a room for babies, a game room, a library, guest rooms, a small winter garden and other premises which provide any type of leisure for the house inhabitants and guests.
