The front facade derives its expression from the interior interplay of openness and privacy. It screens the house from the street through several layers: the stairway, the bookshelves, the solid wall with punched windows providing glimpses of the street, and the exterior perforated aluminum rain screen. Two narrow vertical glass slots run the full height of the facade, capturing light from the street while further accentuating the length of the spaces with continuous views from the front to the back of the building.
Although designed for the interior, the exterior of the front façade also engages the street. During the day the aluminum rain screen, with its water-cut brick-shaped openings echoing the solid bricks of its neighbors, appears as a flat, patterned mass, marked off from the adjacent houses by the tall glass slots on either side.
The apartments are located in a new residential complex on the 16th floor in the center of the small town of Perm (Russia, the Urals). The total area is 120m2 (1,292sf2). Basic room – living room, kitchen, living room, sitting area, bedroom, bathroom teen bathroom.
To meet this challenge, the conventional plan and section has been radically redefined.The stair and elevator core are pushed up against the street façade, instead of running along one of the party walls. As a result, loft-like spaces run fluidly the entire length of the 38-foot-deep building, rather than being compartmentalized into small front and back rooms
