Mansion reconstruction

ITHAKA-Architecture and Design as Architects

The mansion is located in a picturesque gorge of Dzorahbyur village, Kotayk region, Armenia, on the distance of 28 km north-east 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 as 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 at the balcony.


For facing of the facade were used slabs of natural travertine. The use of travertine on the facade gives the building not only an 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 of a light honey-color was chosen. Floors in the fireplace area and the kitchen are covered with ceramic tiles. In the interior design of the mansion were used lamps of leading factories "Artemide", "DeMajo Illuminazione" and "Schmitz", as well as furniture by well-known furniture manufacturers "Swan" and "Flexform".


In the dining room, which is combined with the kitchen, is used the furniture by the Italian furniture factory "Cattelan Italia", as well as kitchen furniture by manufacturer "Ewe".
