Is Summer house completely white built on the outskirts of Moscow by the architect Peter Kostelov It has sunbeds and a rocker but does not have windows or doors. You have to look closely at the photos, at first glance we seem to be looking at a model built on paper. The house was designed for a Russian television program in which clients and architects meet to exchange ideas before the architect carries out the development of the project.
The architect was given absolute freedom to develop his imagination, with the only caveat that there should be no basketball court. Kostelov designed a house completely open to the outside, with roller shutters for the occasions when more shelter is required.
Sun loungers integrated into the space of the terrace and a bathtub, the dacha is a Russian summer residence and this has been planned as a place for leisure and recreation. Rest and activities related to free time, such as bars installed on the wall, facing the seesaw, as a small gym.
A rustic shower of bucket to cool off when leaving the sauna that has been built in the house.
The interior of the house, also white, runs between the enormous openings that face the exterior. Under cover of the large solarium that is the roof of the house.
The whole house is oriented to the enjoyment of the heat, a necessity for the Russians. They, after the icy winters they endure, like to spend the summer sunbathing and doing outdoor activities. This dacha reflects the tastes of the Russians in that regard. Sun, water and the sauna are always ubiquitous in their culture.
It is a curious construction to enjoy the summer, and since the warm Russian summer can also be oppressive, the upper terrace of the house has been equipped with a cooling system by water mist.
