A house on the edge of the forest is the dream of many people seeking peace and contact with nature. Have you noticed that we respond for the slogan ‘house in the forest’ by seeing a wooden hut with small windows? It doesn’t have to be this way.
Modern house design in beautiful nature ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8O0FPhbXRc&fbclid=IwAR1v7rBAtqp8vSD1iNDZHzy6eDAA6K-SmNRM-CGG7hrY5tRow6YydVKDrGo ) is actually the dream of most architects. This does not mean light work like a feather or lack of design problems. However, the awareness that thanks to this project the user will drink coffee every morning looking at the forest, immediately inspires the designer.
The existing space is a large, partially wooded plot in the immediate vicinity of the forest. The area where the house was to be erected and Investors’ guidelines determined the extension of the block in the east-west directions. For future residents, the most important were specific functional dependencies and the fact that there are no stairs and slants in the house.
The priority of the project was a clear division of parts: centrally located common space, grouped children’s rooms with good exposure to southwestern light, and some breathing with access to eastern light for adults. We also separated the technical space, which consists of: laundry, pantry, and wardrobe. Due to the location of technical rooms, we gain an additional thermal buffer for the building from midnight.
The building block is a simple result of the adopted functional divisions. It consists of several interpenetrating cuboids, visibly separated thanks to the contrasting colors of the facade. Stylish building additions, such as roofing part of the terrace supported on oblique poles were added
Of course, glazing plays a key role in this type of project. We did not want to generate large heat losses, but the interior contact with the beautiful surroundings was considered mandatory. Almost all glazing from the north has been eliminated, thanks to which most of the windows perform the function of natural heating of the space. To avoid excessive overheating and x-rays of the interior, the largest southern glazing has a small roof.
The project is being implemented. We can’t wait to see the results!
