The brief of this incredible project was to transform the interior of a house that was a concrete minimalist box into a warm but still contemporary home in Russia. Taking on this design task was Moscow-based Olga Freimann’s architectural bureau. Freimann used exposed timber and timber veneer as well as dark accents of color in the furniture and decoration to fill the space with a sense of warmth and comfort. The house is surrounded by forest and Freimann has made use of this natural source of color and texture by using large floor to ceiling spans of glass that provide amazing views out into the surrounding landscape, blurring the boundaries between indoors and out. The most impressive feature in this home is the incredible indoor pool that features a double height ceiling. With stunning light fixtures and floor to ceiling glass that looks out to the forested landscape beyond, one feels like they are one with nature when taking a dip in this heavenly pool.
