_ Lago Maggiore first look of the site and first ideas

The site situated far deep in mountains, far of Lago, 700 m. above sea-level, and 500 m. above the lake. But it has nice view directly to Lago Maggiore, in this moment it is cloudy. All area built on rural tradition houses, but out of the 300 m. area around the lake possible to build exactly what you whant. Any style and any design. So, becouse of our first impressions of this site, idea of water flows goes from top of the mountain, appear. Big rock on the site allow us create something with suspended parts. In consort with Anna Sokolova.

Parthenon rebuilding overlook

I was forty when I first time seen Parthenon in live. I was surprised, it is under reconctruction. Since 1975... Big kran still stands inside the temple, marble block das't has order and stored everywhere around... In ancient time it was build in ten years, without mashins, kran, computers and historikal investigations, of course. I guess it is to slow and endless. But Parthenon is allways perfect, in spite of condition, thanks to Iktinos and Kallikrates.

Small hotel building re-erecting - project Volga

It was 2 stored old white bricks hotel. The idea not only about re-erecting of original building, but change it's image fully, make it fashionable and attractive. First floor consist of suits, second - of two big luxury apartments. We used metal structure for upper floor, and moved arched line of windows forward in reason to add gross floor. Flat roof has structural addition for partes and so on.

Bicause it first, you see, when you walk in front of exponents. Sometimes it has realy fresh design. Perhaps, this stends idea very appropriate for smoll house project:) Anyways, it's never boring.
