Feel the Scandinavian style of this summer house near the Belarusian village of Raubichi, which is clad entirely in larch and cedar.
Zrobym Architects, which is based in the nearby city of Minsk, designed the summer house that is located on a residential estate on the shore of the Dubraŭskaje Reservoir.
The house is raised above the ground on an insulated slab and features a gabled roof with large, overhanging eaves that is covered in aluminum sheets joined with standing seams.
“Trying to execute all the wishes of the customer, we have embodied a small, cozy space in the project of a cottage, which will be comfortable enough for living in old age,” the architects explained.
“A return to traditional forms of housing construction and reflection of classical Belarusian housing in a modern style became the main conception when designing the house,” the studio added.
“The Scandinavian asceticism and the Belarusian identity were reflected in the house project, creating together a unique image.”
Inside the building, the look and feel of a classic cottage is invoked through the use of extensive wooden cladding, exposed ceiling beams and details such as a wood-burning stove.
