Theresidence occupies 257 sq. meters and is located right on the river bank, on the place of an abandoned workshop. The house takes up a notable space, right on the vehicular entrance to the city, therefore local authorities insisted on creation of a brand new attraction, which would become a bright orienting point. This stipulated daring design of the construction, outstanding on the background of the neighboring buildings.
The house`s finishing is performed of corten steel, staying in contrast with white cliffs behind. It`s fundament is made of concrete and forms a river shore. The first floor of the house has panoramic glazing and asymmetric roof ends the construction`s image with simple planning. There are five bedrooms with bathrooms on the second floor, as well as an opened living zone on the first floor, which also locates cabinets, a covered terrace and a small inner yard. The house`s space is optimized for various changes upon the family`s wish. The interior`s finishing has plain palette with domination of oak wood material. Therefore, this modern and sustainable house is a perfect solution for the young family; it decorates the city and has already become a part of it`s architectural heritage.
