It is this understanding put architects Vasiliy Butenko and Sergey Makhno in the name of his home, calling it "Black Sea alcove."Built opposite the sea in the Crimean mountains (Ukraine), an alcove is a haven for quiet friendly parties.Divided into several zones transparent and opaque screens, replace all interior walls, alcove allows guests to break into companies with different interests.

Note floors, created from materials of different textures.That is what allows you to feel the autonomy of each of the zones, if the screen is removed or pushed aside.Namely, the mobility of the screens enables constantly changing alcove plan to use it every time a new way.
