Redesign of the House
The main client’s wish was to make the reconstruction of a common existing architectural structure and to achieve completely new image of the house by the minimal intervention into it. The new architectural structure was attained with the help of functional re-planning, minimization and reduction of the needless parts of the house and is characterized by a clear form language. The use of the achromatic colours gave to it sculptural character, and serves as a background for existing plants. The decoration of the façades is based on the pure geometrical forms, - rhombus, cross and square, - an interpretation of the Ukrainian ancient ornament. It contain a deep symbolic meanings such as: Cross – symbol of a Sun and Fire, symbol of an eternal life; Rhombus – symbol of a fertility and a sown field; Square – Earth, integrity, plenitude and fairness. Thereby, these meanings were embodied into the body of the house.
