Gorki House in Moscow Russia

May 31st, 2011

Situated to the west of Moscow, Russia is this intriguing contemporary house. The architects positioned the house atop a hill with the intentions of utilizing the views. Since the view looking north wasn’t as good as the rest, they decided to block it off. This gave them the idea of the folding structure, which really gives the house its uniqueness.

If you look closely in the first image you can see the garage goes right into one of the structure folds. This gives me the idea that when I do finally conceptualize my house I’d like to have a garage that you can’t see. The garage door would be flush and of the same color—think Batman’s cave.
