PS1 House / Igor Sirotov


Looking for some new headquarters for your Devious Machinations, Inc empire? What better setting could there be than a cold rock face in an undisclosed location somewhere in the wilds of Russia? The bare minimalism of all that pale grey stone against the black water is the perfect complement to a series of concrete and rusting steel structures that already look like remnants of Soviet bunkers, despite being constructed fairly recently. PS1 House was built into an alpine outcropping by Kiev-based architecture practice Igor Sirotov, a firm whose Scandinavian-influenced work is characteristically moody, minimalist, modern and a bit severe with all of its rectilinear concrete surfaces and monochromatic palettes — via Dornob
