Villa Roho in Kenya

The name originated from Swahili, and “roho” means soul. Our unique approach in architecture makes it possible to create live, sensory architecture that is united with the natural landscape and provides their owners with comfortable living solutions for a long time.

Built on a steep relief, this unfolding architecture has become a combination of minimalism, expressed in the choice of finishing materials, and neo-organic functionalism

The unfolding architecture of the house is revealing itself from every side. The water and earth element, expressed in stunning landscape design and decorative waterfalls, are inscribed in the architecture, bringing the design to life and preserving the ecosystem. Pergolas with sliding glass roofs, designed specifically for the wet season, laconic and durable natural materials, synchronised layout – they all reflect the spirit of time.

Firstly, our main task was to design a house on a steep relief, due to the fact that the house is located in the Great Rift Valley, where baobabs and acacias are growing. Hence why, this three-story house is erected on piles. Secondly, it is owned by a big family, and it was necessary to adapt the functional part of the project to every person’s lifestyle and special needs.

Quality architecture is based on the balance between volumetric and planning solutions and functional zoning of the premises

The entrance lobby is one of the most unique places in the house. The large front door is made of a one-piece glass unit, 3.2 meters high and pivoting with offset axis. Special ramps were constructed for the older generation. At the request of the younger generation, we included a garage for 6 cars in the courtyard. One of the most innovative solutions is a sliding glass system for pergolas. Even taking into account the heaviness of the structure, this glass doors will move smoothly and silently.

Plenty of natural light, breaking of the boundaries between interiors and surrounding nature, flat roof, precise geometric shapes, panoramic glazing are the key features of this project. Landscape compositions have become a part of the architecture. The original and thoughtful landscape design emphasizes the dignity and monumentality of the house.

In our architecture we use noble materials, such as porcelain stoneware, clinker bricks and heat-resistant wood to achieve the laconic look and functional layout. High-tech and environmentally friendly materials allow the house to harmoniously fit into the natural landscape, and increase its value over time.

Our philosophy is based on the fact that your home environment primarily influences your social and personal life, therefore every project has to be personalised. We develop projects that can improve people's lives, taking into consideration environmental status as well. The symbiosis of natural elements and inorganic construction is the architecture of the future.

Outdoor terraces and SPA areas, hobby zones, guest rooms – it is the variety of spaces and functional zoning that make your house a favourite place for every family member with different lifestyles.

Bar

Each open area of this project has its own peculiarity. For example, for the bar area with a biofireplace, we chose a large island made of a solid slab of white-grey marble and light Abachi wood.
