Description:

Borzestova is a complex of two summer houses with a built-up area of 35 m². The project was evaluated several times while working on it. This resulted from changes in the needs of investors as well as changes taking place in the immediate vicinity of the plot. The guidelines changed, but the idea of the project remained the same to develop the plot in a way that connects people with nature. Investors wanted to share the charm of the place with others hence the decision to make houses available for rent. Despite the neighboring buildings, the project retains its intimacy. It allows you to enjoy silence and spend time away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The plot, apart from the outline of the buildings, is a biologically active area (permeable surfaces are grass or aggregate stabilized with a geogrid) supplemented with recreational facilities. The shape of the building draws from the values of traditional Kashubian architecture. A gable roof with a symmetrical angle of inclination was used, as well as uniform colors of the facade and roof covering. The contrast of window recesses and facades, as well as the form of roofing over the entrances to the building, bring to mind elements of classic Kashubian houses. And it is on these elements that you can notice the play of light and shadow, which, depending on the season, give the buildings new views. The dark color of the facade boards is achieved using the Japanese Shou Sugi Ban wood burning method. The glazing of the summer house is a screen filled with nature - the forest wall and the water surface of the lake, visible from between the trees. The whole thing was designed using frame technology.
