Example text

A sandstone wall that ‘snakes’ its way through the building from inside to out is a clever tactical and visual device, used to connect a variety of spaces.

Landscape elements continue from garden to interior to emphasise seamlessness, while respecting the language of the original arts-and-crafts-style architecture. A new orientation of key living spaces was a critical first step to maximising sunlight and natural ventilation. Connecting the formerly closed-off rooms was key to unlocking the home’s spaces and bringing about highly usable and friendly living areas. External and internal blinds, as well as sunshade awnings, were used to control exposure to the sunlight, while inside the house an open mezzanine has transformed the back hall into a functional focal point.

The terraces grow wider as they descend the hill, creating more usable space. The third garden is a real secret garden — a cosy nook, shrouded in mystery and romance. Entrance to this chamber garden is only via the terrace formed by the Photography Andrey Avdeekno difference in layers. The fourth garden, the winter garden, is the ‘green heart’ of the house, situated at the very core of the multi-functional living space. Around the winter garden there is a sequence of zones, each having its own function: kitchen, dining, lounge, traditional Russian samovar display area, office and swimming pool.
