Europe`s architecture cannot be defined easily, the styles and currents have been influenced by history here more then anywhere, materializing layers and layers of different architecture, the economy, social and political status of the respective country being bound to the architecture developed.Unlike Singapore and Cape Town where modern mansions are found at every step, exuding and breathing luxury at the highest level, in the East European countries like Moldova, Romania or Bulgaria, such dreams, such modern mansions are rare events sadly, contemporary architecture being subdued to the socialist architecture of the last century and the economical status.
The small beautiful object ahead has been designed by Dmitry Petrov, a declared minimalist, engaged in the search of the purest and most simple volumes. The small minimalist home can be found after driving 15 minutes from Chisinau, capital of Moldova. The home is developed on one storey that hosts three volumes meant to accommodate a young family and create a functional mix between clear defined lines and the advanced technology used.
The first volume hosts the house itself, including the living room, kitchen and dinning and two bedrooms; the second volume placed on the north sides is forged to serve a covered terrace and a storage room, whilst the third accommodates the mobility, serving as a carport. In such a design the backyard landscaping is very important, the Line Architects managing to emphasize the plot with a breathtaking garden and a swimming pool tied to the the second volume, these features offering the inhabitants the opportunity to relax and admire the surroundings at its best. Stark white has been used to reduce the scale of the space while accents here and there are creating borders and boundaries between different spaces. While the mansion is breathtaking we find it sad that it is only used during the holidays.
What do you think about this modern minimalist holiday house?
