Textual content description supplied through the architects. The vacation space “Deer” sends a message concerning the harmonious interplay between recent structure and nature through breaking the bounds between indoor and outside house and making the encircling probably the most charming enjoy of the development.
With a steady solution to the undisturbed panorama, the vacation space “Deer” is positioned in Kurzeme’s herbal reduction this is surrounded through lake, meadows and century-old bushes. The presence of untamed reindeer which have a tendency to graze each close to the home or extra remotely within the woods creates a different context for the tough external – a atypical poetry of minimalist structure.
The duty used to be very transparent from the outset – the buyer sought after to look a harsh structure in the case of expression, which corresponds to the principle serve as of the development – a males’s accumulating position the place fishing, enjoying playing cards and unhurried conversations may just happen whilst taking part in a cigar or a pitcher of wine.
The video represents two major axis that outline total thought – a visible axis that is going alongside the brand new driveway, continues throughout the development and ends up in the lake, whilst the opposite shapes the development’s structure in line with the terrain.
The brand new development continues the lifetime of the home which used to face right here – the stairway resulting in the lake is positioned at precisely the similar position as prior to. It used to be vital to care for this hyperlink.
The sculptural symbol of the development with its other slopes within the facades and the glass constructions originates out of the other ranges of herbal terrain. The silhouette of the development adjustments from other perspectives revealing more than a few characters of the facades.
Concrete, because of its language, turns into the principle building part. It’s poured in two layers – first, for the bearing construction, and after insulation is positioned, the second one concrete layer is implemented at the out of doors. An advanced and time eating development procedure.
“I understand concrete as a fully residing, herbal subject matter. I didn’t search to reach a really perfect, clean texture. To the contrary, I stored the joins and the asymmetric color. What’s extra, like any herbal fabrics, concrete ‘ages’ gracefully: at the out of doors it’s lighter and in 4 to 5 years time, beneath the affect of the solar, it is going to turn out to be altogether white, whilst ultimate gray within the color.” Architect Sintija Vaivade.
While you input the hallway you’re going to discover a panoramic panorama with the lake. Expansive glazing occupies nearly the entire south facade going through the lake, developing interesting translucency and a way of nature’s presence.
Darkish oak doorways and eating desk, gentle oak veneered kitchen with panelling and poker desk – personalized in line with architect’s design, create a heat and comfortable setting throughout the concrete inner.
“That is my working out of the Latvian panorama, it’s my solution to how I see it. The presence of nature is crucial part skilled on this development.”Architect Sintija Vaivade
