The three volumes of the complex are linked by a narrow glass gallery, which appears as a backdrop for the small inner courtyards. With its fa├žade of tinted glass and patinated copper, the house blends into the landscape of the riverbank while still retaining its modern, urban appearance. The peculiarity of the place is in the necessity to create a link between the adjacent large buildings, embankment and small public garden at the intersection of two narrow streets. Thus the broken line of new dwelling complex composed of three different sized buildings follows the green channel which starts at Zachatjevsky monastery and ends on the river bank. Any "standard" house would`ve become a dam across this channel, so the park-like character was given to the new composition quite intentionally. The system of three houses unified with continuous ground floor through passage makes its interior an inseparable part of the adjacent landscape.
