Davit Jilavyan：Probably you all remember our sonora house project. For the new followers, we made a house concept in Mexico, It was frozen, but we gladly finished it and showed you. We didn’t expect so many people to like him and were very surprised. A lot of people have been writing to us about their feelings, saying they’re inspired by this project, and for us it was very important and enjoyable. Maybe that confession meant we were doing something right.
“We are young architects and visualizers from Moscow. Our friend from Mexico wanted us to create the concept of the house for one family. They wanted simple and bright house, but they didn’t want it to be like a simply coloured box with windows. We didn’t want to invent something new, we wanted to harmoniously combine the color and shape. In our project we used pitched roof with an internal gutter system. In order to get away from the standard use of windows, we decided to make them scatter, of different shapes and sizes. In addition to custom design, this solution allows light to come into all rooms of the house. So here we can see long ago invented bright coloured house with some modern minimalistic shape. Despite to these bright vision we made it fits in with the environment. Unfortunately, at some stage the project was suspended, but we were passionate about the idea of this concept, so we completed it.”
▼索诺拉住宅 Sonora house
It’s been almost a year. The world has changed a lot over this time, unfortunately not for the better. We’ve been working very hard this year. Sitting in self-isolation, surrounded by four walls, it occurred to us to create a whole village from houses like Sonora House. We wanted to create a place where people can come and feel for a while in a completely different place, far from the grey reality, to feel in some bright 3D space, or even a cartoon. It’s a place free from prejudice. There’s no place for racism, sexism, humiliation. We tried to create a completely different atmosphere that would exude joy, love,happiness.
Sonora Art Village is an explosion of our emotions, it’s what we lack in reality.
我们受到了大师里卡多·博菲尔(Ricardo Bofill)和路易斯·巴拉干(Luis Barragan)作品的启发。他们的建筑与此息息相关，人们常瞻仰他们的建筑，在其中拍照片、拍电影，模仿他们的设计，运用其中的某些元素，我们也不例外。毕竟，它们不仅仅是普通的建筑，而是艺术品。
We were inspired by the works of great masters Ricardo Bofill and Luis Barragan. Their buildings are still very relevant, people take photos of them, shoot in the movies, do something similar, using some elements, and we are among them. This is not just ordinary architecture, but a work of art.
We do not put ourselves in line with these masters in any way, but in the name of the project ‘Sonora Art Village’ we wanted to show that our project is not just guest houses, but an art. Every house is like a sculpture.
Our goal was to do something as simple as last time, but unusual.
Thanks to the way our house was warmly welcomed for the first time, we thought that maybe we should continue this idea, and came up with a whole village of similar houses, where people can relax.
In Sonora Art Village there is no clear system, the houses are located chaotically, each house has its own colorful path. Cardinally, the house has not changed,there are changed the overall dimensions, there were houses of medium size and very small. With regard to geometry, we began to use semicircular arches, passageways, small overhanging volumes. Some houses are higher, some are lower, so the village has a lot of small stairs, which makes it feel like you’re going up and down in a game like Super Mario.
The windows by the houses are as chaotic as they used to be so that more natural light penetrates. The houses which are located on the slope have their own swimming pools and also have one large pool for common use.
In the aisles between some houses there are flowerbeds with large vegetation. It’s kind of an oasis, but still with cacti. Big cactuses. We love cactuses.
The houses still have nighttime lights in their colors. At night, this place turns into a light installation and the sky is painted in different colors.
By the way, at home everything is not in the usual pink and yellow color, we have made a different combination of colors, but each uses two colors and our classic white window volumes.
So this is just a concept, non commercial, just a piece of art. But anyway we would be happy if one day our project became a reality to let people dive into a completely different atmosphere.
