Project • By LABS DIZAINSPrivate Houses


What should a soulfully refined home look like? A home that is made solely in accordance with one's personal worldview of modern space, philosophy and good taste? It should be a home that is filled with a pleasant desire to disconnect from public events and at the same time be an escape room - not an escape in this sense, but a sanctuary. Peace, purity of style and high quality design created by the harmony of forms - these are the values with which a house speaks to its owners every day. LABS DIZAINS LABS DIZAINS From the inside out  The single-storey private house has been thoughtfully and carefully built, without any haste, gradually developing the idea of the desired end result.

Easter house in Domodedovo

he house is located in the south of the Moscow region in the Domodedovo district. The customers are a young creative family whose hobbies include traveling.

Pinheiros Residence

The original house had a nice layout and an interesting volumetry. On the other hand, the house still was in its original state, which happened in the 60s and needed an urgent transformation so that it could attend the new demands of the family and in its finishes to update the house to these days. Evelyn Müller In the ground floor the reorganization of the living room and the creation of a veranda were the most meaningful changes: now, the social area opens to the backyard, which was before isolated and forgotten. Evelyn Müller The dining room occupied the area where the gourmet is today and all the living looked only to where the swimming pool is today. When rearranging the social area, the living room took a better... More

House Zevenhuizen

Anchored by the primary palette of Sapele wood and Jerusalem Limestone, the structure radiates warmth and elegance. By ‘folding’ the front yard down to the basement level, the building sensitively reduces its height and presence on the site; and through expansive glass and openings creates an engaging dialogue with the outdoors.
