This was a house for the young family with two kids who leads an active lifestyle. Actually, while they were choosing the design of their house they found out about one more baby coming soon. That’s why it was very important to create flexible space, comfortable, cozy and at the same time contemporary house.
The main idea of this design project located in the pine forest at the Kyiv region was to save the natural landscape.
By using an optical illusion this house looks much bigger inside than it is. The area of the plot is 700 sq. m. while floor space is 200 sq. m.
Several factors influenced the design solution – the necessity of the two-car garage inside the house and desire to save the beauty of the natural landscape. That’s why the architect decided to construct this family house using the cube concept.
On the ground floor, there are a big garage, spacious living room, dining room with a big table for all family members and a comfortable kitchen.
Kitchen, dining room and living room are combined in one open space.
To keep unity with Nature, one of the walls in the double-height living room is made of glass which enables to fill up the house with daylight and allows to enjoy the pine-trees outside the window.
On the second floor private zone, bedroom and two children’s rooms are located.
The bedroom design solution is in calm natural colors. Gray-graphite decorative cover on the walls is harmonizing with the oak-wooden floor. Wardrobe room is hidden behind the door that is invisible from the first view.
While working on the design for the teenage girl’s room, designer considered the fact that regardless of size, a teen’s bedroom should be versatile enough for them to spread out and get homework done, sleep, and hang with friends, all while reflecting their personality. So she created a stylish and multifunctional room with two beds, a work desk, and comfortable bright sofa. She went with a natural green, white and oak-wooden palette.
The second room is intended for a boy. As well as the first one this room can serve for two kids.
Two beds are hidden under the wooden podium. The work desk is placed over the podium near the window. This organization idea helps to clear more space for fun and study.
At this room, the designer decided on white walls decorated with blue and red drawings and oak-wooden floor and podium.
Wall art became a convenient way to dress up a child’s room, delivering simplicity with a punch of character in its application.
The main idea is whether for a toddler or a teen the room should be fun and functional.
The designer used natural materials to create a calming and cozy environment inside the house. Most of the details are made of eco-materials such as wood, wool, and linen.
