A place for a vacation for 1-2 people.
The main idea of the project was to create a small house, laconic architectural form, which can be easily transported and assembled on site. At the same time, it had to have the most comfortable conditions for living and recreation of 1-2 people for a long period of time.
It was also necessary to consider the possibility of preserving the natural landscape of the forest, when installing the house, without disturbing a single tree around. And to bring the spirit of pristine nature into the interior of the house.
This is such a youthful peculiar mini "buzz-house", where you can just relax in comfort and enjoy nature, as well as reconnect with it and your inner spirit through meditation, sitting on a flat roof.
The small size of the cabin makes it cozy and unpretentious in maintenance.

When thinking about this project, we were guided by three key components: for what, for whom, and with what message.
Blackwood House is not just a house, it is a place of rest and unity with nature for people who appreciate comfort and spiritual values.

Thinking about the construction of the house, we gave it a minimalist image, designing it a small rectangular shape with a terrace on one side of the facade and a flat roof with a staircase attached to it, which gives the building a youthful spirit.
We made the roof flat so that, in addition to its direct purpose, it also serves as an open-air terrace where you can meditate in the first morning rays, do yoga at sunset or daydream lying on soft cushions under the stars.
Large panoramic windows occupy almost the entire front façade, opening onto the outdoor terrace. Together with the black finish of all the facades of the house made of burnt wood, at night, when light shines from these windows, it creates a mysterious effect of a light energy portal in the forest, inviting us into its world.

The house structure is prefabricated and transportable, installed on piles on site. If you want to install 1 or 2 houses for yourself, small in size, but with a premium-class equipment inside, or create a whole park-hotel consisting of these "buzz houses", it is easy to realize. Two houses can fit quietly into 3 trucks and travel without special escort to their destinations.

When installing the house in the woods, we kept the wood mass intact by carrying the assembled elements of the house sideways between the trees to the place of installation also among the trees.

Natural materials were used in the finishing of the house: planked wood in the exterior cladding of the house, stone flooring inside the house, light-colored wooden panels on the walls, metal elements in the interior. Thus we wanted to show that the house is an integral part of the natural bosom into which it falls. And when installing it, it is important to preserve the natural landscape that surrounds it.

Creating a small space, we took care to make it as comfortable as possible for each of its inhabitants for a long period of stay.

The house consists of one room and is divided into functional areas such as sleeping and resting area, cooking area, and sanitary area of shower and restroom, each of which is equipped with everything necessary for a full-fledged rest and stay.

The sleeping area has a comfortable bed for one or two people, the cooking area is equipped with all the necessary appliances, and an optimal working area with a full sink. The house has a shower room and a bathroom, and there is also a washing machine.

If the window is cool in the fall, you can walk barefoot in the house, because the house is equipped with a warm floor and there is a wood stove to heat the room, if you need to create a light heat, there is a radiator under a small window and the stove can not ignite.
So, having slept sweetly on a comfortable bed, waking up in the morning, taking an invigorating shower, you can prepare yourself a delicious breakfast, brew a cup of aromatic coffee and go out on the terrace and enjoy the moment. And in the evening, reclining on cozy cushions on the roof, dream under the stars.
