Private house in Kavarna
The project is located in a Black Sea village, not far from “Rusalka” resort. The property is on the border between the urbanized area of the village and the agricultural fields around it. Due to the flat nature of the place, it provides a spacious panoramic view: the landscape is composed mainly of cereal plantations. To the north one can see many wind turbines while the eastern side of the property is bordered by dense foresteal vegetation.
The main idea of the project is to create visual hierarchy and depth of the spaces depending on their function, while allowing residents to enjoy the landscape and ensuring their security and privacy. For this reason, the house fits into a square, separating three courtyards: entrance, daytime yard and nighttime one.
Each of them opens to the environment through an automated portal. Thus, the architecture has the ability to blur the boundaries between interior and exterior or to emphasize them, depending on the preferences of the residents.
The house is decided as a one-story building, with the day spaces volume being independent but connected to the night spaces volume. The ceilings and all interior and exterior walls are covered with hand-applied plaster, which has a rough texture and a color close to the one of the earth surrounding the house.
