proposed PS1 house by igor sirotov is embedded into an alpine rock face in russia


designboom has just received images from architect igor sirotov revealing his proposed ‘PS1’ house project.
the renderings reveal a private residence which has been built into the rocks in an unknown location in russia. the exterior details individual rooms which are joined through an interlinking staircase that starts at the bottom of the surrounding lake leading up to the highest point.

the overall aim of the design was to work with the existing environment, creating an interconnected construction that mimicked the landscape. this desire was implemented by igor sirotov architects, through the use of natural materials which blend effortlessly into the rock face. individual chambers are highlighted by a steel frame and stone flooring which match the texture and palette of the surrounding scenery. the rhythm of the interior follows a similar pattern to the exterior, using an interdependent layout which connects different areas through the addition of ladders and large vertical dividers.
