This unique house has dynamic aluminum panels which can close windows, providing security and soundproofing  

Damir Ussenov and his architectural firm Lenz Architects designed a villa in the foothills of Almaty in Kazakhstan. The main aim of the architect was to create a separate, isolated and safe space, while making it possible to enjoy the wildlife. The unique metal framework allows natural light to enter the interior, bypassing the dense thickets and difficult terrain. 

The facade consists of dynamic aluminum panels which using an electronic mechanism can close windows and isolate the house from the environment, providing security and soundproofing. The panels are treated with white plaster EIFS (Exterior Insulation and Finishing Systems) which have thermal insulation properties and sanitizers. 

The house, which resembles a shell, includes a large studio with a kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and a relaxation room. In addition, a spiral staircase leads to an open and comfortable guest bedroom.
