This incredible modern contemporary luxury residence is located in Zhukovka, an ultra-affluent village on Moscow’s western outskirts which is home to some of Russia’s richest and most powerful people. A striking and solemn contemporary departure from the traditional architecture and symbolism within a town made famous as the resort destination of Russian Communist government leaders, this home is centred around elegant minimalism and indoor/outdoor living.
Set within the natural confines of a country forest site, Moscow based architect Alenandra Fedorova created a residence with a timeless design that celebrates the connection of interior living environments with the serenity of its natural setting nestled among the forest’s picturesque trees. Inside, stunning double height living spaces create an atmosphere of exclusivity designed to create a sense of spaciousness and establish a dialogue with the forest with an open concept floor plan that delivers an elegant minimalist yet bright and airy peaceful environment.
Villa Zhukovka consists a main building and a separate pool house and garage unit which includes rooms for personal use and a music studio. Joined by a canopy, the two buildings allow for a comfortable and organic transit between spaces. Built on a monolithic reinforced concrete frame with walls constructed of decorative bricks, the structures facades are clad in a natural wood with porcelain tile accents. Large floor to ceiling picture frame windows and sliding glass doors that open out to the forest essentially make the exterior a striking visual focal point component of the interior living areas. This is truly a glimpse of elite luxury living in Russia.
