The design of this two-story residential building, located in the Kyiv region, was created by Igor Martin, Anna Romanova, and Olga Novikova. The concept of the house was inspired by a rock penetrating the interior. The ground floor features an atrium with a striking accent wall made of luxurious natural stone, weighing over 15 tons.
Within the “body” of the rock, a wood fireplace was incorporated, creating a captivating combination of stone and fire. The interior design is characterized by a timeless aesthetic, achieved through the use of natural materials, colors, and textures.
The ground floor of the house consists of a spacious living-dining room that seamlessly transitions into the kitchen. During the summer, the kitchen’s adjoining terrace serves as a dining area, complete with a separate barbecue section and a seating group.
The first level also includes a nanny room, a children’s room with an en-suite bathroom, and a master bedroom with a dressing room and a bathroom. Additionally, the ground floor houses various technical rooms, arranged in a spacious layout.
The second floor is accessible via a two-flight staircase made of concrete, wood, and glass. Underneath the staircase, indoor plants are thoughtfully planted at floor level, adding a touch of greenery to the space.
On the second level of the house, there are two bedrooms, each with its own bathroom and dressing room. A delightful feature of the upper bedrooms is their separate access to the upper terraces, offering pleasant outdoor spaces.
