Text description provided by the architects. The interior space is comprised of an entrance hall, hallway, living room and a kitchen, plus a small separate bathroom.
The feeling of unity is achieved through the common decoration technique. This technique uses two basic materials, which are distributed along the planes in accordance with the concept of antigravity: ceiling and walls are finished with plywood; walls and floors are finished with tile.
Both materials are similar in color and the black metal frame is superimposed on top. The metal has both decorative and structural functions: it serves as the basis for kitchen furniture, fixtures and lamps, and glass partition.
The guest bathroom volume is made low in height, similar in the feeling to the Dutch-oven. It's tile trim further promotes this association. The guest bathroom helps with zoning, but does not divide the space completely, keeping the overall feeling of air.
The kitchen is raised on a podium, which creates a place for storage underneath. A box container is placed over the border of the podium – to be easily used from the kitchen – creating a feeling of comfort and privacy in the sitting area.
Plywood from coniferous trees was consciously chosen as a finishing material: unfinished, construction quality, rough texture; then it was covered with multiple layers of colored oil and rubbed in, so that its surface became picturesque.
Tile was selected on the same principle of picturesque painting. Light is organized with the variety of scenarios possible. All fixtures are designed by the architect and are made of black metal.
