Jurassic Villa

Best Project of Private Residence

About the project
The project is called ‘Jurassic Villa’. It looks like a dinosaur bones in the middle of digging. The main elements of the building are load-bearing reinforced concrete structures made in the form of bones. The space between the structures is closed with broken glazing. Part of the relief goes inside the building. The entire interior is a long space divided into several zones: living and dining rooms, exhibit corridors and bedrooms. There are many objects in the house with an original design, such as a stone table with a piece of rock, chairs in the form of an inverted triceratops skull, a chandelier in the form of bones, candlesticks in the form of spines and so on. Also in the interior are walls with fossils and many copies of dinosaur skeletons and skulls. In general, this house is like a museum, you can walk around for a long time, studying the various exhibits from the Jurassic period, as well as references to the movie.
