Private House in Samara

The cottage consists of two separate buildings – residential house and small summer kitchen. Solid walls of the kitchen face the street, and stained glass full height windows face the residential house. This layout reminds chamber Japanese house design.

The appearance of the residential house built on the contrast of aggressive forms and transparent glass. Open and glazed terraces create an effect of multilevel building. Finnish silicate white brick with accents of polished ceramic tiles is used for the house decoration.
