Exclusive elegance in harmony with nature
This house was built by Honka in the suburbs of Saint-Petersburg for a family of three – a married couple and their daughter. The house is located in one of Honka residential areas and its’ façade is looking over a lake.
The panoramic windows overlook a spectacular water view and the surrounding nature becomes a harmonious part of the interior. Moreover, most of the rooms of the ground floor have exits out of the house, which makes the connection with the nature even more intensive.
The complex structure of the house is mirrored by its’ architecture: multileveled independent gable roofs crown the building and its’ gradually growing height dominates the façade, having inside the main room of the house, its’ double-height living room.
The ground floor is taken by an open area, uniting a kitchen, a dining room and a sitting area. The kitchen zone leads to a garden house with barbecue, where you can relax comfortably around the year. When it’s warm, the glass room of the summer house can be opened, converting it to an open terrace. In winter and autumn, the seamless glazing allows the residents to enjoy the lake view, while the underfloor heating keeps the area at a comfortable temperature.
Curved stairs, decorated with oak planks and curved glass railings, twists around a two-sided fireplace and leads to the first floor. On the first floor, there are master bedrooms and a lobby with a library.
All interior decoration materials have been carefully chosen. Natural wood combines beautifully with shades of beige, white, grey and dark brown. This house truly is an epitome of peace-of-mind and relaxation.
