Designed by Shomali Design Studio, this modern and futuristic villa- named ‘Lako’ is surely an architectural wonder that sits in the scenic landscape of Russia.

The surrounding nature influenced the shape, aesthetic and material palette of the project.
An Extended Sloping Roof
The angular structure features a sloping roof that extends from the top to the ground and merges well. "We tried to use a solid and simple form to make a powerful and safe feeling.
On the other hand, making harmony with the surrounding by extending the sloping roof to the ground was our main goal. In the end, the futuristic and modern form was born during this process. Also, it is an inner space at the front door,” said the architect.

Fluid and Warm Interiors
The firm used warm and fluid interiors to have a cozy feeling.
The bold and warm colour palette with numerous floor materials gives the luxurious villa a much-required warmth.
Unlike numerous plush villas, this has a one-level floor layout. Further, the floor naturally curves in the mid to offer a raised platform for the bed which separates the sleeping area.
The project also contains beautiful windows that allow the dweller to enjoy the snowy vista.
