HALF-TIMBERED HOUSE PROJECT "SCANDINAVIA - 150"

For this guest house the construction site location has been chosen on a bank of a lake situated next to the land plot. On the one hand, such location provided some visual privacy from the new building to the main house; on the other - let the guests enjoy the view.

At the same time, contrary to the main residence, it was decided to use timber as the principal building material for the one-story guest house - the projects authors opted for it due to its exceptional environmental friendliness, natural beauty of its color, and ideal correspondence to the purpose of the building. Indeed - which material can be more fitting for a guest house on a shore of a lake than wood?

Full timber construction - especially if built utilizing a traditional Russian technique (erected on beams) - could be accomplished by the authors in the "Russian Style". However the architects deliberately preferred to distance themselves from such predetermined course and bluntness: the living room is being dominated by the modern minimalist forms and shapes, and the bedroom interiors are decorated rather in the French countryside spirit.

интерьер гостиной - вид на главный витраж
This ambiance is being created by the wrought-iron headboards, large-flowered curtains pattern, delicate vanity tables and miniature bedside cabinets. The guest house features two bedrooms - "pink" and "green": needless to say that walls in one bedroom are painted delicate pink and the other - light green; the same color theme applies to the bathrooms located next to them.
