Hi everyone, in today’s post I would like to describe to you the process of creating a new design, the design of new Pin-Up House.

All the time during my studies I used to hear from my professors and students that our target is clear: “to find design studio as fast as possible and start to design skyscrapers and huge office buildings“. It is the only way […]
Hi, after I have built a few large houses I decided to design minimalist architecture because I think it will be better way for me. I had a few reasons for this change. The main reason was the need to obtain a building permit. The planning authorities have all sorts of great power over my […]
Why I founded this project? What is my motivation and target? Pinup-houses don’t need building permit!
