Implementing this project, a spacious house in a coniferous forest lasted about two and a half years. The client wanted the building to be a single story for added privacy and designed in a modern, minimalist style. The site and the surrounding area dictated the future concept of the house. And as the territory has an almost flat relief, the team of architects focused exclusively on perfecting the design concept of the future home.

With every component that this house consists of, the architects echoed the idea of merging with nature. The choice of facade materials includes thermo ash, natural stone, glass, and metal.

The house's main feature, which the clients instantly fell in love with, is the presence of so-called green wells. Inspired by the German trend of using live compositions indoors, the team placed three such zones around the house. For example, in the main cube, the studio chose a coniferous composition with a rather complicated piece of technology to conserve its plants year-round.
