October last year, a design & engineering company FK Engineering in association with DOMOY! TV channel and information site archi.ru announced an open competition dubbed Unique Home inviting architects from across Russia to test their creativity. Several SIGNY employees accepted the challenge.

The goal of the competition was to create a unique concept of an unorthodox residential building to be implemented later in Nizhny Novgorod. Over 60 contenders turned in their proposals, but the jury, headed by Nizhny Novgorod’s Chief Architect Victor Bykov, selected only 10 concepts for the final vote. The winner was announced on April 13,  2015. The title of the most colourful and original concept was awarded to the work of our BIM Manager, Igor Khisamiev!

Igor’s Final Concept


“I've come across this competition by accident, simply stumbled upon it while browsing the Internet and it got me interested. I’ve spent some time trying to come up with a good concept, the design had to be feasible and fit to build. At some point, my wife suggested using the Rubik’s Cube as the basis for my idea. And this is how my concept was conceived”, – Igor explained.

In addition to an Apple iPad Air, the winner of the competition will have the chance to become the chief project architect and implement his own concept.

We congratulate Igor with this achievement and wish him more creative challenges and new victories!
