Organic topography of the hill area prompted the architectural concept of the house. Therefore, the lower floor appears as a hill extension and includes a garage, storage and utility rooms. All the main living spaces are located on the second floor, which commands the most picturesque view of the forest with a creek.
Local natural materials were prioritized for the construction of this house. The exterior is coated in unique black stone from Karelia region, called gabbro-diabase. Natural oak was chosen for the interior finish of the house. Delicate sliding shutters to the house windows with traditional Russian saw-cut carving were added to emphasize its rustic style.
