Tasteful display of contemporary design in Moscow

House of MrR- Za Bor Architects-01-1 Kindesign

House of Mr. R is a single-family residence designed by Za Bor Architects, where the only client stipulation was to preserve all the trees on property in Moscow, Russia. The plan skirts around and incorporates birches, oaks and pines and the design team even went so far as to create and embed a special concrete pipe into the foundation to preserve a tree root. While the volumes grew from the layout of the foundation, the 6,027 square feet (560 square meters) home is carefully composed into public and private areas, emphasized by way of material and color. The monochromatic reinforced concrete exterior counters white marble interiors dotted with channels of pebbles and black built-in furniture.

A wine cellar is expanded with tinted glass mirrors and wrapped in a pattern  of corian and dark wood. Contrastingly, the more private areas are swathed in warmer materials, oak paneling and cream-colored textiles work in conjunction with band skylight to create airy bedrooms and bathrooms. The sloped roof is actually a single faceted piece, accessible for sunbathing and or picnicking while providing choice apertures to bathe the home with interior light. There is an accessible roof area for sunbathing or picnicking located between the house wings. There are two balconies and one recessed balcony on the second apartment floor. The recessed balcony adjoins a closet and is sheltered from rainfall by glass shed with a metal frame. Outflows made of thin stainless pipes are raised above the rooftop level and sloped against the house space to intensify an aesthetic impression.
