The house by the sea is light, it is full of sun. This a light shade of natural was achieved with the help of high ceilings (3 metres) and the finishing - a light shade of natural gypsum plaster widen the space. Sunlight fills the room through the vertical sliding panoramic windows of the ground floor and the picture windows bonded to aluminium structure in all other rooms.
Hidden storage technique and overall functionality are parts of modern style. To achieve this cupboards and drawers were designed to be from floor to ceiling and their door panels masked.
Furniture develops the practicality and functionality further. The sofa room, the cabinet, the dining table, the kitchen, bar stools, the bar counter, the roof access panel, the build-in closet (Russian brand MAGOFCC) are all made from African teak - solid and moisture-proof. Item made from this wood are sophisticated and practical. Elegant and comfortable premium sun-loungers are by YACHTLINE DESIGN. The dining chairs by Bfarab are ideal in terms of their form and functionality.
The townhouse is located on the coast of the Black Sea of Sochi and is part of the mid range residential area with three-storeyed buildings. The apartment has a wonderful view on the sea.
The owners are a big hospitable family, so the living space needed sleeping area for both the hosts and the guests, a big dining room, a study and lounge areas, at the same time providing some privacy for the residents of the house.
The core design idea was a house by the sea. Naturally, the sea, the wind and the sun remain outside, but such trendy technique as “back to nature or let the nature in the house” reflects the main principles of this idea. Ethnicity was mostly avoided, the focus was made on the mediterranean motifs with a great share of modern style. With its functional simplicity, geometrically clean lines and overall delicacy it makes the interior neater and ethnic elements look more natural.
Designer textile by the Russian atelier KS studia (cushions, table cloths, throws, etc.) puts the finishing touches to the image of the cozy goodhearted house. According to the owners and the guests, the house is very welcoming and hospitable. The design does not steal the show but invites the residents to enjoy the harmony of the form and content.
The third floor houses a terrace, which is practically a whole lounge area with deck chairs for sunbathing, a bar counter and other facilities for a n elite sea holiday. The space is almost completely open and a bioclimatic pergola by DECOLIFE with a swing-sliding mechanism, with added glazing, was installed as a roof. The terrace is made of African teak - solid and moisture-proof, with special terrace flooring made from garapa. Such tactile finishing made this space warm and cozy.
