Rural Housing, Bolshoe Zaozere, RU

The projected development site for low-density housing is situated in Zaozere, a small village along the river Sylva. The rural setting, a typical karst landscape, is of outstanding natural beauty. A mountain ridge on the opposite site of the river is visually dominating the site.
The approach for the development of the assigned building area focusses on the relationship living environment – topography / landscape, trying not to disturb the perception of nature for the incidental passer-by. All individual plots are arranged along the river embankment while the public accessibility of the embankment is ensured. The linear development can be done step by step, while the sizes of the succeeding plots are flexible. A set of building rules provides a framework for a reserved architectonic expression; small size building volumes are blending into the surrounding.
