The project was started basically from scratch as only the shape and the surface area were left from the house the clients bought. The initial building was rather unremarkable and looked like an ordinary summer house outside Moscow.
Our team spent a long time working on it as any reconstruction is always more difficult than building from new. We demolished everything apart from the bearing walls and were left with just the cubic metres of space entirely at our disposal.
Based on the features of the space and landscape the designers chose modern constructivism as the main style. As panoramic windows on the ground floor are not a feature of constructivism, we can call it modern constructivism. In order to create a visual balance from the outside and to widen the indoor space it was decided to build a glass veranda. It completely changed the look of the house in terms of accents and overall style.
Sometime later a separate guest house was built on the grounds. It also contains a garage and boiler room. The staff bedroom, living area and bathrooms are on the first floor.
