This small country house for a young family is located in a beautiful pine forest. Therefore, our main goal was to fit the building into the environment creating maximal harmony without placing an emphasis on the house, and leaving nature dominant. We tried to preserve the atmosphere of outdoor recreation in the interior.
The desired result was achieved through the use of such natural materials as wood (for wall panels and slats) and natural Ukrainian sandstone. We also implemented the technique of panoramic glazing allowing us to enter the yard from any room. A large terrace helps to efface the house’s boundaries letting it merge with nature.
