Text from Corvin Cristian:
The house is inspired by the old wood boat sheds on the neighboring Snagov lake. The lot is narrow and thus generated the shape and position. For intimacy and view reasons, the street facade is totally opaque while the openings abound towards the courtyard. Sun protection is provided by exterior electric aluminum blinds that slide underneath the wood facade when not in use.
In the austere geometry of the house we introduced some “romantic” elements as the curved balcony or the 1900 colored concrete tiles. The Thonet chairs, the ottoman inspired sofa from Autobahn, the reclaimed wood coffee table or the Matthew Hilton “Oscar” armchairs are a counterpoint to the white minimal space. The walls are to be filled with a collection of paintings.
