|VACATION & SMALL HOUSE
Besides base of permanent living, additional complementary second dwelling
unit has been topic for many. An escape from everyday reality to dreams
of romantic space and romantic time. Vacation, leisure, week-ends, summer
or winter holidays, is to be spent in an environment with strong presence
of nature. Feeling for natural phenomenon, for sun, for wind, stars and
moonlight, for water, grass, flowers, garden and trees are more presented.
That is more hedonistic time for meals, food, drink, sex. Relaxation
might come with easy garden work. Inside fireplace and outside grill
are welcomed contents. Some enjoy with some construction work, and with
their ideas in design. Romantized image of vacation time is often connected
with some romantic styles, an image of Mediterranean or alpine story.
Some stone or wood will add some romance. Looking for the genuine beauty,
construction regulation is very often extremely conservative.
Under those circumstances, feelings of clients and regulation demands,
I have designed some small houses, initially for vacation, but some latter
have become houses for permanent living (they are located on the acceptable
distance to city).
My last clients are very pro-modern, regulations gives space for maneuver,
and I expect nice small house.
