The land for the construction of the low-rise cottage complex is located in one of the most picturesque parts of Moscow region - Istrinsky district. The main objective was to find a new, memorable image of a cottage complex among the similar completed projects. We analyzed the competitive situation in this real estate field, taking into account both the architecture and the target segment and offered a definitely outstanding architectural concept. We presented our vision of one of the most popular architectural style, characteristic of the Northern Europe – timber framing, in the new interpretation and design.


Fresh approach and design of one of the most popular architectural style, characteristic of the Northern Europe timber framing
The constructive basis of the timber framing - posts and beams, made of wood are autonomous and distinctive elements of the building that do not hide behind the cladding, but vice versa are the main ornaments in the architectural framing of the façades. Therefore, we have preserved this approach as a basis for our interpretation of timber framing as a token of the linkage between the past and present architecture.
Long roofing extensions, increased window glazing area, natural wood – all of this forms an unforgettable architectural image and creates a cozy and warm space for living in a suburban house.
However, keeping in mind the modern suburban real estate market environment, we couldn't but introduce fresh and contemporary elements, that complemented the new image of an old style. Long roofing extensions, increased window glazing area, natural wood – all of this forms an unforgettable architectural image and creates a cozy and warm space for living in a suburban house, that we lack in a daily megapolis life. In the colour design we stuck to the classic timber framing option – beams of dark wood and light walls that let us keep the unique character and authenticity of this medieval style.
