Villa Sochi Residential House by Alexandra Fedorova

Home > Winners > #42852


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Villa Sochi

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Residential House

INSPIRATION:
Exterior image of the house reminds of the Mobius strip. It is a clear architectural shape of a white strip that flutters in the wind and forms a figure on the one hand and the infinity sign something fundamental on the other. The stairs leading to the main entrance are trapezium-shape and invite you to the house. This shape is dictated by architecture of the building. In order not to put the house deep into the ground, we have decided to take it up so that its back is on the ground level.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This private villa is located high in the mountains near Sochi. The site is on the border of a huge highland wildlife sanctuary. Out of every room, you can enjoy spectacular views of green mountains spreading down to the sea. Public area is located on the ground floor. We enter the living room through the hall. The joint area of kitchen, dining room and living room is split into 2 zones. It has panoramic glazing on one side of the living room and an exit to the terrace with the pool.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
To maximize the interaction with the environment, we wanted to create an air image of the house. Therefore, home base is hollow volume of the basement, and the other two floors are light and airy with lots of glass. Because of this, all the rooms have a good light and views.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The study was focused on the technologies of construction in seismic areas, and opportunities for realization of its architectural design.

CHALLENGE:
The most difficult part of constructional design was about this area seismicity level of 9 points so the building had to be constructed to a 6m grid. But our engineers have done their work so we do not have any grid at all and moreover we managed to design an 8m console of the first floor. It was not an easy task to design this kind of structure in the mountains. The locals still call this house flying saucer.
