Penthouse on Tumanyan Str. in Yerevan, Armenia

http://ithaka.ru/eng/portfolio?pid=141&cid=20&id=83

The project is implemented in modern mixed style, with the elements typical for works of Frank Lloyd Wright, American architect of the beginning of the 1st half of the 20th century. However, if in his interiors and exteriors Wright have been using common motifs, forms and materials typical for the architecture of the American aborigines (Ennis house, Hollyhock house, Tracy House, etc.), in this case motifs, shapes and decorations typical for the Armenian architecture are applied. In particular, lining the main blind wall with the purely hewn red-orange tufa is an important focus, which is common for secular and civil interiors of the Armenian Renaissance constructions (9-14 century).

In fact, the wall, lined with tufa, is a characteristic feature of the penthouse. It covers the entire backward (from the entrance) surface from the main open planning zones, entrance vestibule, hall, living room, dining room and a staircase that rises up to the leisure area: a fireplace, bar, library and open a summer terrace with a beautiful view to the center of Yerevan. Thus, the "Orange-red Wall" becomes one of the characteristic components of an apartment, giving it a specific ethnic spirit and at the same time is a modern touch in interior design.

Motifs and elements of ethnic Armenian bas-reliefs, forging etc. are also used in the interior.
