Dmitry Pozarenko Russia : For Architect Dmitry Pozarenko to create architecture that would be in a harmony with the landscape, it was necessary to find the factures that suited the “simple village house” image. Solutions were found while travelling the Ural. The larch shingle of the roof had been used until the end of the 20 century. Old barns’ fragments had been used as an archetype for green schist walls. Old granite yards had become an archetype for the black granite floors. The porch is designed with the same granite, creates impression of the house based on a single granite slab.
Inspiring images: old barns made of stone; forest stream running through the bushes; summer kitchens for open-air cooking; apiaries and 100-foot high pines by the river. Childhood memories form the interaction between human-beings, home and nature.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES :
Traditional archetype of the house is brought to the asceticism of its forms. Cedar shingle of the roof and green schist walls conceal the building in the grass and bushes of the man-made landscape. The luxurious granite floors and the mahogany walls fulfil the ecological focus of the project. Behind the glass wall, the rocky riverside comes into view. The main image of the house is versatile natural landscape outside.
The spa area is separated, which provides the housing areas with complete privacy. The main house (at the design stage) is 20 meters away from the guest house porch. The spa area is located between the main house and guest house. This makes it equally available for owners and guests. The dimensional scheme makes it possible to avoid crossing of the owners’ and guest groups’ lives. For instance, if the owner decides to use the swimming pool at 6 a.m. it won’t bother any of the guests.
