Located in the villa community “Okolitsa”, Moscow, this 1500 sqm house is a residential project by Kerimov Architects. Each volume of House in Okolitsa is separated with atriums to form relationships between the exterior and the interior, landscape, and architecture.
The complex topography of the site is a forest that can define rhythmic architecture. Besides creating relationships between the exterior and the interior, landscape, and architecture, each volume is separated with atriums to ensure the privacy of individual zones as well.
Natural materials are used for this house, such as metal, stone, thermal decking, brick, and tiles that will be covered eventually by age and patina. The use of natural materials is important for the house to stay relevant and change over time.

On the first floor, the atriums of the house separate the private zone which consists of a library, playroom, classroom, three children’s rooms, master bedroom, yoga class, changing room, and bathroom.
