The house is located near the Black Sea town of Sozopol and is situated on a plot with a panoramic sea view.
The project involves the partial reconstruction and complete visual transformation of an existing house. The old house was built around 15 years ago in a style imitating the Sozopol vernacular, in its architectural features and materials: A multitude of inclined roofs with tiles, facade planking and tile cladding, bay-windows and arches.
The wish of the client wsa to achieve the exact opposite effect: A contrasting, memorable, minimalistic, and contemporary architecture. The biggest challenge of the project has been to reduce as much as possible the cluster of geometries and to emphasize the constructive principle of the building by making some spatial and organizational improvements of the interior.
The guiding idea of this project has been to create a light, elegant and ethereal atmosphere, dominated by the sea view and the constantly changing colors of the surrounding nature. Both the interior and the exterior have been designed in nuances of white, with the only colorful touch being the works of art present in the house.
The three-story house has one big common area, which includes a living room, a kitchen, and a dining room. There are also four bedrooms, four bathrooms, two wc as well as storage and service rooms. The furniture, with plastic, abstract, and non-standard forms has been carefully selected to create the overall feeling of being inside an art gallery. The courtyard has various relaxation areas, each with its unique qualities, facilitating diverse experiences of the outdoor space.
