The plot is situated on the active slope, on the border between private residential development and botanical garden. The layout strategy proposes maximum contact with the park by exploiting the view from all internal spaces. It was essential to highlight the active terrain by means of landscape elements and volumes. The main volume is moved to the back of the site, its closed parts being as close to the neighbours as possible. As a result, the house enjoys a lot of free space to admire its own garden that flows down to the green mass of the park, creating a single green space.
The composition consists of two cubes – the main volume and the garage unit with guestrooms on top - which are aligned with a glazed passage. The garden and the internal spaces enjoy utmost protection from the outer environment. The life of the house is influenced by as many as four gardens. First, this is the municipal botanical garden. The house enjoys a wonderful view over its green groves lying below. Besides, the house has its own sloping garden. Four elegant rectangular terraces emphasize the difference between the levels, presenting a peculiar contrast with the natural landscape. Different orientation of terraces creates a dynamic connection between the house and its surrounding. The third garden is a real secret garden – a cozy nook, shrouded in mystery and romance. One can get into this chamber garden only via the terrace formed by the difference in layers. Finally, the fourth garden is the green heart of the house. The patio garden is situated in the very core of the multifunctional living space. Around the winter garden there is a sequence of zones, each having its our function: kitchen, dining room, lounge, collection of traditional Russian samovars, office, swimming pool. Visual connections between all internal spaces intersect the layer of the winter garden with tropical plants. The winter garden also plays a major part in the gallery of the second floor where the bedrooms are situated.
