A sprawling modern dream home, Zhukovka XXI is located in Russia and was designed by UNK Project. The 8,900 square foot structure boasts light, texture and a subdued palette, becoming a gorgeous portrayal of minimalist opulence.
The developing itself is comprised of stone blocks interrupted by a series of glazed vertical panels. Steel rod installations frame different trees and garden areas, resembling what a single may see at a grand monument. A substantial carpet of grass injects a dose of color and softness into the setting.
The beautiful stonework is continued inside as walls, though plentiful glass partitions also separate these vast spaces. The main living area is double-height, accentuated by full-volume windows dressed with sheer draperies and mirrored wall. Warming the luxurious interiors are medium-wood ceilings and floors, which elegantly contrast the white linen furnishings. The palette is kept neutral with earthy taupes and cool greys adding an understated richness.
The adjacent dining area can be viewed from the living area and as 1 enters, the ceiling lowers and the vibe is a bit more intimate despite the large program. The kitchen’s workspace and appliances are totally hidden behind a hulking concrete island and cabinetry along the rear wall. A huge wood dining table is embraced by curved leather chairs, with a duet of pendants with “disconnected” disks hovering above. This pattern is a subtle reference to the outdoor courtyard which functions a circular roof reduce-out exactly where a tree gently pierces through it–always a fresh architectural approach to enhancing nature!
Two wooden staircases fit between stone walls and lead to the second floor which features a split bedroom program. An angled ceiling panel of skylights illuminates each the stairwells and these private regions casting plentiful organic light. The master suite is graceful with billowy sheers upon the windows, dim lighting and soft white bedding. The bathroom is sleek, wrapped in smooth stone with rectangular basins, vanity and soaking tub.
Geometrical in nature, Zhukovka XXI may turn into the new normal of modern dream house design and style, tempering lavishness with a dose of simplicity.
