Modern Dacha
Interior Design
A modern asylum, standing in contrast to the quick, everyday life of big cities.

“From my grandfather I inherited a modest forester’s lodge in the heart of Pszczewski landscape park. I wanted to enhance it and create contemporary dacha for friends and family.”

The idea of finishing the second house in the middle of the woods came from Investors’ love for nature and proactive way of spending spare time, as well as the need to create an asylum, standing in contrast to the quick, everyday life of big cities. Although the dacha steers away from traditional representation of a lodge, all design solutions and materials draw direct inspiration from the overpowering proximity of nature.
After analysing the project’s needs, world’s directions and sightings of nature, the surface of - initially - not that big catalogue home, covered with oblique roof, doubled in scale. The building’s entrance was placed in the link between old and new parts of the house and it encapsulates both a dressing room and a bathroom for guests. Interior corridors, along with the windows, were underlined with plywood frames, which stand out even in the floor’s finishing.
Newly built house’s wing includes a spacious dining room and englassed living room, which were separated from each other with a centrally placed, massive chimney made out of black steel. Big windows, framed with natural plywood allow for experiencing to the fullest the picturesque forest surrounding the house. The terrace encircling the house, after opening the doors, creates a natural extension to the house.
Original placement of the living room was swapped for the spacious kitchen with a big family table. The fronts of furniture installments, those made of natural plywood along with the vanished ones bear resemblance to traditional farm doors with oblique braces. The kitchen’s furniture installment encapsules surprising functional solutions: two high fronts are actually hidden doors leading to the pantry and a passage to the private bedrooms section of the house.
