How to make a country house more beautiful: the real story of turning a chalet into a chalet -

Owners of the villa, which we will tell today,Decided that the ideal for them would be a house if not completely in the style of the chalet, then at least its renovated terrace. The owners of this purchased a plot of land 15 years ago. We built a house with a terrace. From early spring until late autumn, the dacha is their second home. Over the years the house has remained intact and unharmed, but the terrace has suffered considerably. And so much so that in the heat it stopped saving from the sun, but it was leaking in the rain. With this problem, the owners turned to the program"Fazenda", and the architect Alena Timofeeva suggested that they not only rebuild the terrace, but make it in. Alena Timofeeva, architect-designer Graduate of the Faculty of Design MGHPU named after S.G. Stroganov. Since 2006, he is engaged in the design of private and public spaces. During this time, worked dozens of interiors: private apartments, cottages and townhouses, offices, offices, exhibition space. Currently he is the leading architect of FD-studio. She believes that the interior design in her studio is the solution of the tasks set, and not the realization of her "individual" creative nature and her "taste preferences" at the customer's site and at his expense. The gable roof of the house is just what you need for a chalet. Therefore, the option in this style begged itself. And the architect began by completely clearing the area under the terrace, removing from her the balustrade and the old tile on the floor. Cement mortar leveled not only the floor, but also the socle, which was then lined with impregnated with special composition racks. They also covered part of the facade. Such a preparatory work can be done in autumn, so that in the spring the socle and part of the facade are immediately covered with a board. Alyona Timofeeva, architect: - The board in our project is not painted, as it may seem. This color was acquired after heat treatment. But it's not just about color. The board, processed at very high temperatures, does not rot, is not affected by any wood parasites, absolutely resistant to changes in temperature and humidity. Therefore, if desired, the lining can be made from autumn. It was interesting to have a floor covering. The middle is laid out with a Metlakh tile in the form of a carpet. From the same tile made space under the steps. And the rest of the piece is covered with pieces of marble, previously priklennymi on the grid. Thus, marble is very easy to fit, but looks like a long-laid mosaic of stones. In addition, this floor is very durable and fully complies with the style of the chalet. There is one more advantage. The Metlakh tile is painted in mass. Therefore, if as a result of prolonged operation, cracks appear on it, they will be almost invisible. A new balustrade is installed along the perimeter. It is based on vertical racks, connected by handrails, with crosses under them. To protect the terrace from the weather, the roof visor was supplemented by another ramp covered with monolithic polycarbonate. The ramp is connected with a balustrade by vertical slats, covering the terrace in the form of a wall. To a small terraceThere were problems with the internal arrangement, the architect immediately provided a metal rack. It rests on a tree-lined wall, covered with a grid-rabitsa. Shelves are made from the already familiar heat-treated wood. The terrace is illuminated with the help of a ceiling that gives a muted light, and wall sconces made in the form of street lamps. The two sides of the terrace are covered with translucent polyester curtains. Usually the terrace uses garden furniture from theRattan. It is light, dynamic. Here, furniture with exactly the same properties is chosen, but it looks like a natural tree. It is cast aluminum, expertly painted under a tree. Very light and at the same time quite strong. It can be left on the street in any weather. True, you can not use armchairs made of aluminum without pillows. Of course, on the alpine terrace can not do withoutPlants. Alena Timofeeva has provided not only the original pots, but also the original plants. For example, willows with woven trunks. These are grown especially, interweaving among themselves thin willow rods, which then grow together and a braided trunk is obtained. Small trees look original, but even more unusual looks adult tree. Attention will also be drawn to the polyurethane pots,Made in the form of natural hemp. They are also not afraid of the effects of precipitation and temperature changes. For a terrace in the form of a chalet, they are a great addition. The cost of general construction works and rough materials amounted to 70 000 rubles. When arranging the terrace used:

Terrace options

  • Install a stove on the terrace, or take out the necessary household appliances. Get two in one: a terrace and a summer kitchen.
  • It will look good on the terrace oriental style. Put a low table (it is possible with a hookah), overlay it with a large number of pillows - the place for rest is ready.
  • If space allows, hang a hammock.
  • Select a green area on the terrace. Put all the plants there, put an armchair between them. Better places for relaxation can not be imagined.
  • Sun loungers and sun loungers on the terrace are a great way to get sunburn and sun bathing without leaving the house.
