Kandinsky House is a new, mixed-use residential and office building located close to the Iset River in the historic heart of Ekaterinburg, east of the Ural Mountains in Russia. The project benefits from its proximity to the river embankment and its numerous pedestrian pathways that traverse the site. The upper residential volume is clad in white Swisspearl fiber-cement panels. The panels are punctuated with framed windows of varying sizes and projections. The front elevation of the volume is gently curved, with windows that protrude through the cladding, thus accentuating the curve. The smooth, matt, fiber cement panels were chosen as an effective cladding material that could easily form the curved geometry, which is aesthetic, durable, and low maintenance.
