The residence is located in very picturesque places, so the duty of the architects was to preserve the opportunity to enjoy it as much as possible. For this purpose, a lot of free open space was allocated for arrangement of rest in the courtyard, as well as huge windows to the whole wall, for enjoying the beautiful night views.
As for the gallery, it is a huge room 14 meters deep in the building and 6 meters in height, a total of 190 square meters, completely dedicated to the equipment of the gallery.
