“Snowy Crown” Villa

Best Project of Private Residence

About the project
Dry and alive branches, green and brown fir needles, melty and fluffy snow – this is where inspiration for the villa image came from.
A sophisticated geometrical layout resembles a tree crown, the roof mantling the villa with its every turn as snow. Bark-like rough brick masonry can be seen from under “snow” – galvanized steel roofing. Display windows gleam as frozen ice pieces. Twig-like rod screens are visible here and there. The project features synergy of natural and man-made, it is an attempt to make a human closer to nature, following the steps of Frank Lloyd Wright.
