After showcasing its masterful “Rose” house, another notable project from the portfolio of Ukranian studio firm Sergey Makhno Architects is this steel home and it’s essentially similar to the aforementioned design.

Situated deep in the Ukranian forest, the structure is defined by its steel and glass composition with rusted copper exterior evokes minimalist sensibilities through its clean rectangular profile in varying volumes. The three-story residence features ceiling-high windows and an incredibly large glass ceiling that opens up to the landscape.

Thanks to its rusted exterior, the home perfectly blends with its natural surroundings, which almost mimics the trees and also seems one with the earth. In addition, within the center of the house is a wild garden. As the temperatures rise, ivy and wild grape weave through the perforated mesh that make up the floors and walls to generate perfect shade.

To round out its overall contemporary aesthetic and add character to the project, the architect installed three asymmetrical sculptures throughout the residence, while the ground floor terrace includes a large pool.

In other designs becoming one with nature, this home made from stacked shipping containers is like a flower blooming in the desert.
