Concrete structures of different shapes and sizes, often with geometric ornaments, become not the main variant of finishing facades, but an addition to the overall picture of the exterior design of the house (very often with almost entirely glass facade).

John Ryan, interior designer:

– The glass facade of a house is an excellent solution for exterior design even in Russia. Some people may be worried about privacy and heating, but in fact there is no problem here. Architect and designer in advance provide a good view from the window and choose only warm glazing. Three-chamber can easily withstand frost to -60 degrees.
