Low-rise single-family development is becoming denser in this part of Kiev downtown. New typologies are introduced into the urban tissue.
The design assignment was to locate two single-family houses on this relatively small plot, 508 m2, with a 9-meter difference in topography. In order to realize the main project objectives, we decided to use a hybrid scheme that combines features of urban villa, terraced house, and townhouse.
Structurally, it is solved by two terraces-platforms with embedded utility rooms, topped by common spaces and the cubic volumes of bedrooms. The upper terraces overlook the hilly landscape of Kyiv.
