The project explores the idea of mobile authenticity that finds common language with global trends. Modern interpretation of Eastern traditions and myths prompted the image of a house that belongs to a hospitable owner who invites visitors into his “fortress”, simple-looking at the exterior, but cozy and luxurious interior. The volume consists of four major elements, each representing a different category of space. The key intrigue of the building is the void that gradually develops into a skyward atrium. This void is the heart and the lungs of the building, serving as a linking element between its various parts and a common space for communication.
One of the major features of the atrium is a sloping structure of the garden that forms inner recreational zones. This main garden is added with a terraced one outside. The volume and the layout scheme, alongside with engineering installations create favourable ecological situation inside the building, making it self-sufficient (zero-emitting) in terms of resources due to natural air circulation, effective sun shading, solar energy accumulation and its further conversion into electricity.
