Throughout more than a quarter of a century, the workshop has completed hundreds of projects in Denver, Moscow, Yerevan, Minsk, Nizhny Novgorod, Anapa, Kaliningrad and etc. The competence of the company includes a wide range of tasks related to the planning of architectural and urban environments – from urban planning solutions and the design of public/residential buildings and structures to interior architecture and applied design. The workshop also deals with research and educational activities in the field of architecture.
The mansion is located in a picturesque gorge of Dzorahbyur village, Kotayk region, Armenia, at a distance of 28 km northeast of Yerevan. Originally the mansion represented an unfinished one-story house of a countryside style, with an attic under construction. The walls were faced with unhewn gray stone plates.
It was decided to modernize the appearance of the mansion by using strict geometrical forms. During the reconstruction of the mansion a second floor was built, as well as a new building was added to have a place for a big pool. A balcony with massive stone railings was built above the entrance.
Instead of a roof over the balcony, some massive pergolas were installed. Climbing plants will extend to pergolas over time and will create an atmosphere of shade and coolness on the balcony. For the facing of the facade were used slabs of natural travertine were.
The use of travertine on the facade gives the building not only exquisite beauty but also durability and strength. The interior of the two-story mansion is implemented in a minimalist style. Natural colors of natural materials such as oak, white travertine, etc are used in the interior.
As a finishing material for floors in the living room and the dining oak a light honey color was chosen. Floors in the fireplace area and the kitchen are covered with ceramic tiles.
