Pompeii House

The cheerful colors, fabulous décor, multi-colored ledges, and columns growing out of flowers are inspired by Pompeian frescos, but their location next to a Moscow church from the 17th century makes them seem organic: it’s as if they originate from the same time and are part of the same style.

Villa Ostozhenka

This unique residence made of concrete and glass has an underground winter garden and a « swimming aquarium » made of glass. It is a social as well as an architectural experiment as the first family residence built in the middle of the city since the 1917 revolution.

Crystal House

The long, natural-stone street façade is contrasted by the three glass cubes placed on a common foundation inside the block. Their curtain wall is made of tinted glass and makes them glisten like crystals, allowing one to see them from as far the other bank of the Moskva.
