Underground building: House in Nicolas’ Hill

House 02 has been designed by Moscow-based architectural studio and is located on a steep hillside not far from Moscow, Russia. The inclinated terrain has been minimally transformed; in fact, it is a 2,906 square foot (270 square meters) building built-in to the hill. The upper level is a separate white cube, cantilevering over a big span. Here you find the main entrance to this cube, and also a spacious living room with fireplace, a cabinet and a large terrace. The lower level is designed for private zones; it is almost entirely going into the hill. Only one wall has a lot of glazing, looking to the meadows and the nearby river. The inevitable sunlight problem was solved with the help of an inclined clerestory.
