This spaceship like villa with fluid geometries emerges from the landscape, is located on the north-face hillside in Barvikha in Russia, where pine and birch trees grow up to 20 metres high.
The villa was designed in two different concepts: one merging with the hillside, another floating above the ground with dynamic views overlooking the forest.
From the Architect:
“The form for the villa comes from the natural topography – a building that emerges from the landscape, while remaining partially embedded in the hillside.
The first of the villa’s components is strategically placed to merge with the sloped landscape, while a separate volume floats 22 metres above the ground, benefitting from the breathtaking views of the Barvikha forest.”
