Located in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine, this 21,500 square feet family house is the dreaming house for most of people. Designed by Yakusha Design, this large house is made from concrete and glass outside, which might sound cold and something we want to get rid of. However, its nature embracing interior makes you feel fresh and freedom. Lots of plants, beautiful garden which can be seen clearly through the glass window, lots of river stone decoration and its shaped stool and mat. Most surprisingly, it has several live trees inside the house. Besides all the nature elements, children’s area and the corridor is a special honor, because there are an interesting mix of materials and colors, lawn grasses and colorful squares. In all, much of this interior is built on contrasts, cozy and warm wood and glass, living plants and ceramic tiles. I would love to live there.
