At first glance, Wabi Sabi may show itself, but this architectural style is very similar to Gilan architecture. In terms of structures and materials everything is calm, dark and intimate.

A house for the special and insightful. Аs my client said: Not for everyone, but for me! Conceptual house for recreation near the ocean. The house is located almost in the heart of the rocks and reflects one of the cloudy days in a great place for an ideological stay.

A home is often used as a synonym for a place where we can feel at peace with ourselves, the world, and the universe. It’s the one place we can truly feel “at home”, so it makes sense that we’d do everything we can to create a space that oozes with tranquility and harmony.
