Gallery-garage for car collection
This project is a continuation of the main estate and guest house, which were designed and built by the bureau on a plot in the protected Serebryany Bor in the 2000s. The new gallery-garage develops important architectural principles from previous projects through modern technologies and materials.
Working in the reserve area required a delicate and sensitive approach not only to the choice of materials and form, but also to the impact on the environment. The gallery was placed on the plot to preserve all the trees, and the road surface not only allows for water to pass through but also does not disrupt the soil ecosystem. This ensures a maximum level of harmony with nature.
In addition to the garage, the project includes other functions such as an office on the ground floor, a table tennis and golf simulator on the lower level, and a fitness area on the roof - which offers picturesque views of the Moscow River from the terrace. At the same time, the exercise equipment is intentionally placed so that it is not visible from the road, thereby preserving privacy during workouts.
Together, these functions formed the basis for the non-linear form of the gallery, resembling a Mebius strip - it reflects the movement of the car and resembles the dynamic, streamlined parts of a car body. The Corian finish highlights and accentuates the silhouette of this form, and the contrasting white line sets the direction of the flow relative to the environment. The engineering board also maintains the dynamic feel - it smoothly flows from the ceiling of the office, through the wall and down to form the base of the terrace. The glazing with thin, almost invisible profiles adds a sense of airiness. This way, the gallery maximally opens up to the natural context outside.
