Get inspired by these three houses which are partly or entirely made of wood.
This tiny cabin is designed as a place to unplug from the virtual world and dive into the world of inspiration found in the literature. In the absence of the internet or phone connection guests can enjoy peace and tranquility, grab a book, and a cup of coffee, and sit beneath the leaves and branches of the surrounding wood. The cabin is located in the tiny village of Adelin, near Warsaw.
“Bookworm cabin is the creation of an entrepreneur and architect couple, who wanted to design a quiet spot to switch off and reconnect with nature. It’s a take on the classic A-frame cabin, albeit much reduced in size, and has all the traditional elements of a country hideaway, including a wood-burning stove”, as stated in the Space magazine.
In the close proximity of the popular tourist mountain resort Divčibare, on the slopes of the mountain Maljen in western Serbia, a young architectural duo Tijana and Andrej Mitrovic have built their own summer house, the design of which was inspired by the model of Serbian traditional chalets ( ‘ brvnara’ in Serbian).
The authors acknowledged the characteristics of vernacular architecture building blocks, adapted and put to good use some of them such as geometric structure, contact with the ground, materialization, the porch, etc. The proportion of the house is fully harmonized with the natural environment of pine vegetation and undergrowth, while its geometric shapes stem from their contextual aspects, such as mountain conditions and steep rocky terrain, as well as the transformation of traditional mountain chalets. Through the duality of the house, the architects have deftly combined traditional and modern aesthetic expression.
Applying white ceramic tile on the main volume of the house seems to have made an overwhelming impression of dematerialization, which emphasizes its shape and makes it somewhat abstract in relation to the rural environment. In the white half of the house near the living room, there is a kitchen with the dining room. This space with huge window panes, which provide splendid views of the surroundings, is intended for both socializing and contemplation.
One part of the chalet is in black color where there is an entrance with a porch overlooking the white part in such a way that it forms an open bedroom area on the first floor, where the roof slopes used as storage are. Architects draw inspiration in vernacular architecture using traditional timber and woodwork i.e. shingles for black facade layer on one half of the house, highlighting the duality and contextualization of this house.
A small chalet exemplifies the design approach of new generation architects in Serbia, which is research-informed forms in line with appropriate criteria and standards and bearing in mind the principles of traditional heritage through a variety of ways for a reinterpretation of traditional architectural motifs.
Family summer house
The family summer house is located in the area of the village Koraćica on the southern slopes of the mountain Kosmaj at an altitude of about 360 meters.
At the same location, there was an old house which served as inspiration to the architect Deajn Todorovic.
The building of 150 square meters consists of a ground floor with a living room, dining room, and kitchen, and the first floor with two bedrooms and a bathroom. The interior is dominated by wooden surfaces which are contrasted with black and anthracite gray elements such as beehives, stairs, lighting, kitchen, and an effective hanging fireplace.
