Country house with male and female bedrooms (Petersburg)

A spacious house in the Vsevolozhsk district of the Leningrad region began to be built virtually in an open field - this was one of the first buildings in the new cottage village. Initially, its owners, a married couple, chose a typical project made of aerated concrete with facades in the classical style, and after the construction was completed, when it was time to do internal equipment and repairs, they decided to change the appearance of the building.

For this purpose, they invited the architect Natalya Khlypavka, who completely transformed the structure, retaining only the basic planning scheme. For the exterior design of the house, a restrained Scandinavian style was chosen: the facades were lined with white Finnish brick in combination with an artificial board, and the fencing of the balconies and terraces was made of natural wood.

The interior of the house was decided in a modern minimalist manner. All public areas (kitchen, dining room, living room and staircase hall, forming a single space, as well as a guest room) were placed on the ground floor. It was decided to arrange utility rooms at the entrance so as not to create additional corridors. The dressing area is separated from the entrance hall by a heavy curtain that gives the space coziness.

The main desire of the owners was restraint in the color scheme of the interior - so the first floor was made almost monochrome, but not boring, due to the use of a variety of textures and shades: here are several options for painting walls, a concrete ceiling, and stone panels. Pastel gray-brown tones are emphasized by interspersing several bright accents - emerald curtains and sofa cushions. The furnishings and furnishings are extremely functional and subordinate to the logic of design and expediency. The heart of the living room was a modern fireplace, which was not originally provided for by the project of the house. Another outstanding architectural solution is a metal staircase, specially painted in the color of the wall, so that it does not visually hide the space and looks elegant and does not take up much space.

The entire second floor is given under the private zone of the owners. In addition to two bedrooms (separately for husband and wife), there is a common room for relaxation after a sauna and leisurely conversations. The bedrooms themselves are built in contrast to each other. The men's room is decorated in a strict brutal style: with a mosaic wall made of tinted wood, simple and functional furniture and spotlights. The female one is much more elegant: a white metal bed with a headboard in the Provence style, a flower panel and spectacular giant vases-lamps make it the most cheerful room in the house.
