Nikola-Lenivets village, Kaluga region
program: summer house complex
architects: Anton Kochurkin, Lidia Gufranova, Gleb Goncharenko
The complex of summer houses in Nikola-Lenivets displays the theme of the 2020 Archstoyanie Lazy festival: small wooden structures with lazily beveled facades resemble the development of an old Russian village, in which there are no right corners due to houses that have mowed over time.
Behind the dark facades of the houses a bright space opens with a large window, due to which the effect of relaxation in close proximity to nature is created. A large panoramic window becomes a kind of natural cinema for contemplating nature.
The house is made of natural materials, mainly wood. The exterior and interior are made on the principle of contrast: dark relief boards on the outside are opposed to light smooth plywood on the inside.
The interior of the summer house is minimalist and is represented in three materials: light wood, brass and white cotton. Inside the house is equipped with a multifunctional platform, which simultaneously serves as a double bed and a sunbed, on which you can lie, sit, drink tea, play.
In the architecture of «Lazy Village» the image of the traditional Russian village is played not only through architecture, but also through color. We like the color of the aging wood, the motif of the aged wood will be reflected in the gradations of gray shades of the exterior trim.
