The cottage built for sale was purchased by a young modern family and reconstructed to suit their needs. The dimensions of the joint space were increased, the stairs were moved, and all rooms were replanned. A carport, a storage room and a barbecue area with a canopy were added to the house. The original landscaping of a small area in the yard has been completed.
Replacing the windows made it possible to improve the energy-saving characteristics of the house and connect the interior with the terrace and landscaping. The interior space combines the aesthetics of the brutal transformation of the building and elements of personalized home comfort in wood products and pink velvet fabrics in decorating upholstered furniture and curtains.
