S House, Ukraine by KO+KO Architects
The starting plan was to create a holiday home for a young couple and their two children, so S House was created. The main challenge for KO+KO architects was to make transformation to the house using the most advanced technology construction, without losing the warmth and inside comfort, that’s why they decided to create a wooden frame. Thus, there was a radical solution to create a concrete sarcophagus, on the facade resembling a Latin letter “S” hence the name of the house.
The house is located on a long, narrow area, 35 meters wide and 65 meters in length, on a hill, facing east, revealing a magnificent panorama of the river Dnieper.
