Shkrub is a thatched family house designed in the Ukrainian contemporary style and inspired by the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi that finds beauty and harmony in imperfections.

The way that Japanese culture pays tribute to the beauty of its ancestral heritage, was like finding a special lens that gave Serhii Makhno, the chief architect of the project, a different perception of the wealth of Ukrainian culture. The idea of paying homage, as a founding place, can be sensed throughout the home, like a delicate guiding thread.

Delicate concept of beauty manifests itself in all the spaces of this house as the outcome of a journey back to one’s roots: seen in the elements, the architecture, and the objects.
