The landscape of the house in Volgograd

Smooth, strict lines of architecture softened by the dynamics of the brick and wooden volumes locations, forming open areas for landscaping, vitalizing the facade. The color range of plants is assigned a secondary passive role: all kinds of shades of green, bluish-blue, silver-gray. A similar choice of colors serves as a decoration and support an idea of architecture. Silhouette and form are more important than color. A complicated artificial landform frames the entire composition and creates a play of light and shadow, the dynamics of the compositional image of the garden. Plants are planted from the edge to the center in descending order, creating a deep natural funnel in which the house buried. The visual effect is not in the contradiction of the color palette, but the contrast of different forms of plant inflorescences. Planted multilevel plants form a dense volumetric composition in which each component differs from the neighboring one in texture, leaf shape, volume, etc. We preferred perennial grasses, flimsy cereals, conifers, and unpretentious flowers, the aesthetics of which lasts all year round. We divided the garden into several zones, each of which has its architectural form, made according to the house style: a lounge area in the orchard, a movie viewing area, a playground, entrance halls.
