Russian studio Niko Architect has designed the House in the Landscape in the capital, a futuristic house built in a partially artificial landscape. The structure is developed on two floors and has harmonic forms that tend to be rounded and integrate perfectly with the external environment becoming part of it.
The project foresees a great interconnection with the space outside and forms a sort of continuity and harmony. The building seems to be built on a hill and for this reason, part of the roof is formed by the green lawn enriched with plants. In the construction of the house, the concept of “harmonious adaptation” between design, architecture, and nature prevails. As in a living organism, each element of the project is well balanced and connected to the whole, like the external space that intertwines with the living room, the bedroom and the other rooms of the house.
A further connection is given by all the circular skylights that make possible natural lighting throughout the house. These are designed to provide plenty of air and natural light.
Outside of House in the Landscape, there is a terrace that is flanked by a swimming pool while, inside, the house is divided into several areas which include: a kitchen, a dining room/living room, open area with fireplace and a coffee corner, bedrooms, and bathrooms. The kitchen is visually separated from the main living area by a partition wall with a circular hole, which, according to the architects, makes possible a continuous dialogue between the areas and refers to the “classic symbolism of Japanese culture”. The house is furnished with a minimalist style and the furniture is interpreted as a work of art that enriches the house even more and adapts perfectly to the context.
