Unique Finish Wooden House
House on the hill
Project title: Private wooden house with a stunning view
Project stage: delivered to the client, January 2016
Location: Tekov region, West Slovakia
This chalet is located on generous land on a hill, neighbouring a forest. The steep terrain had required changing the original project. We had to build a base deck for the actual building. This way more room was created underground, making the building more spacious, interesting and attractive. The underground level now serves for multiple purposes, the main one being relaxation. It includes stainless steel swimming pool, infra and Finish saunas, bathroom and a small fitness.
The chalet, made of polar pine, meets all the terms of healthy living. It fits mainly into mountainous areas, with its design and the materials used, as well as its amazing thermal insulation, which you will come to admire in the winter.
The living space consists of 120m2 of interior and 80m2 of adjacent terrace protected from the weather by a roof and outdoor curtains. The terrace is accessible from the kitchen (where it can serve as an outdoor dining room, with its grill and outdoor dining table), living room and bedroom (this is the second part of the terrace – here you can sit in comfortable armchairs and enjoy the main view of hills and forests).
The kitchen and dining room are merged together to form a generous, open space. Thanks to the amazing acoustic of a chalet, we were able to place a grand black piano there. From two sides the room has giant windows instead of walls, directly leading onto a terrace.
The glass windows, high wooden ceiling, direct view of the terrace and surrounding forests, minimalistic railing – all this multiplies the size of the interior.
A wide corridor, which begins directly in the common room, leads to the private part, in which the bathroom and bedroom are placed. The bedroom, thanks to the high ceiling, has a large air capacity, resulting in an improved sleep quality. There is no need for a headboard on the bed, as the wooden wall plays the role perfectly well. Opposite of the bedroom is a bathroom, which, just as the rest of the house, has wood all over (floors, walls and ceiling alike), which gives it a sauna-like feeling.
