Why do we need a bathroom? What does it have and what can it do? An unusual look at the functions of an ordinary room led to the creation of a completely unexpected space. And we have a unique opportunity to evaluate it to the viewers of the "Dacha Response", within which the project Meditation, Reading or the Chess Party is being prepared - what do you prefer? Bathroom as a full recreation area, able to turn into a spa, and in the dance floor. A non-standard approach requires fresh solutions. And in this interior they are enough. If you think about it, we do not know the situationBy hearsay. What Soviet intellectual did not happen to sit in the bathroom for Dovlatov? In the old days, the negatives showed up in the bathrooms, photographs were printed, important speeches and cheat sheets were prepared for the session, books and theses were written ... Sanitary facilities were then called "thought rooms" - in "Khrushchev" and "Brezhnevka" there was nowhere to retire from noisy household members. The roots of the current need forFriend. In an overloaded information dynamic environment, it is more the desire to improve the ecology of life, the search for comfort with a minimum of costs. There is a free minute here and now - why not use it for yourself and your family? There would be an opportunity. Architectural Studio Ruetemple: - The main idea of the project is an attempt to view the bathroom not only as a room for everyday routine routines, but also as a full-fledged multifunctional space for rest, socializing, seclusion, relaxation, spending time with children, etc. Ruetemple.ru Alexander Kudimov and Darya Bukhtueva, architectural studio Ruetemple Graduates of the MARHI (2007), during and after studies worked in several architectural workshops of the capital, until 2008 they founded their own. The list of implemented projects Ruetemple was still very small, when this name was first loudly sounded all over the country in the literal sense of the word - from the blue screen. Alexander and Darya created the original cube-transformer for the program "Dachny Response" on NTV. The designer, who is able to turn if necessary and at will of its owners into a bedroom, living room, study or recreation area, has collected many Russian and foreign awards. Unexpected and innovative approaches, searching for the most ergonomic solutions and attention to the needs of the customer were distinguished by all subsequent studio projects. The field of interest is the space that surrounds a person, whether it be an interior or a city environment. "We strive for organic and simplicity and, solving this or that problem, we try to avoid stereotypes and we are looking for fresh transparent solutions." Ruetemple.ru The unconventionality of the situation lies in the very essenceProject. "Dachniy Response", like most of these programs, builds its work on the relative ignorance of the customer. He goes on stage at the very end of the story to thankfully admire or ... on the contrary. All costs are borne by the channel, all responsibility is the architect. Plus: the customer does not affect the work of the architect and, giving him the keys, he leaves to live in another place. Minus: the final is removed without duplicates, and the emotions captured by the camera are genuine. Architectural Studio Ruetemple: - The bathroom is in the penthouse of a house made of wood, on the second floor. The hosts are a young couple with children. They had one wish - to fit everything they needed, so that it was convenient: two washbasins, a bath with hydromassage, a shower room, a washing machine with a dryer. The rest is at our discretion. Ruetemple.ru Bathroom flooring was originally prettyThe problem of placing elements was not acute. But the architects had little to just put everything they needed - I wanted to find each place my place. Recovering from the bedroom niche, they "grew" to the bathroom a meter and a half and received a total area of 13 square meters. And then experiments began. Architectural Studio Ruetemple: - We thought of raising the floor in the whole room by 50 cm and covering the bath. Thus we have achieved that the room has become spacious and free, accommodating everything necessary. Multifunctionality is achieved due to the flexible operation of the podium and the open grilles-lids of the bathroom. Different ways of folding them, you can get different combinations for relaxation, recreation or leisure. Ruetemple.ru A tree reigned around. Architects admit that they do not see in it any drawbacks - some virtues. And the truth is, the tree in wet zones is a surprisingly pleasant and comfortable material, but very cranky. Unlike traditional tiles and stones, it undergoes corrosion, requires painstaking work and special protection. But you can not think of anything better for relaxation and rest. Geometrical drawing of a floor, walls and a ceiling sets a rhythm. Architectural Studio Ruetemple: - Striped lattice structure is a removable system of pallets on the floor above the bathroom and slats on the ceiling and on the wall. Initially, we drew them only on the wall: they were required technologically, they closed the washing machines. Deaf doors could not be used - the technique needed airing. The effect was interesting, and we moved it to the ceiling. This solved the problem of lighting - between the racks, the LED strip was well inserted, and we could not use large lamps - the height of the ceiling after raising the floor did not allow it. They support the topic of raki on the floor. Ruetemple.ru Light - Led, tape in the profile - underlinesGraphic interior and well illuminates the room. Rack systems, removable pallets above the bathroom, built-in closet - all elements were designed specifically for this room. Of the purchased things - in fact only plumbing. Ruetemple works this way almost always. Architects, obsessed with the idea of multifunctionality without loss of comfort, rarely use ready-made furniture and do without most traditional decor items. And yet this project was the most difficult. Architectural Studio Ruetemple: - We never met the bathrooms, hidden in the podium. Yes, so that you can walk on top of the opening doors. The idea was brand new, it had to develop from scratch, and therefore took a lot of effort. By and large, complex, it was almost every element of this room invented separately and individually. Ruetemple.ru Photos in some places are reminiscent of the functionalJapanese minimalism: closed furniture, a minimum of objects, clear clear lines and forms, natural materials and rhythmic wooden graphics as an inexhaustible object for meditation. In practice, such a space can be filled with anything - stylistics of the room, whatever it is conceived, in the end always becomes a reflection of the owners' personality. Will they appreciate the efforts of architects, we do not know. But one thing is clear now: the owners of the penthouse will get one of the most unusual bathrooms, designed recently.
