The single-storey, minimalist shape of the single-family building, located in the forrest scenery, hidden behind the concrete curtain, is the proposal of Hidden House in forest scenery of suburban landscape – the latest project of JabraArchitects.
The building structure, completely invisible from the front side, includes the interior spaces in a simple functional harmony of minimalism. The main goal of decomposition of rooms was the idea to create three, separate residential zones, which ensure comfort for home users. The central – daily zone consists of living room, kitchen and dining room and opens a large panoramic glass panels to the terrace and patio of entrance space. The west wing is clearly separated from the living space. There is a master bedroom with a bathroom, wardrobe room and an office, while the east wing is a children’s bedrooms with a shared bathroom. Wings of the building, in which were designed bedrooms do not interfere with each other, and their daily zone is a clear link. This solution ensures the privacy and comfort for all residents of the house. Garage with technical rooms is planned in the extension of the east wing. The main wall in the front part of the building hides garage gate. It is not only the barrier of privacy, but also a showcase of professional brand of home owners.
Architecture is minimalist simple form based on first floor plan, which is revealed only after crossing the 40 meter long wall separating the private area. Behind the wall of concrete prefab, which is a sign of professional brand of home owners, an interior patio opens the entrance area to the building. White and bright concrete surfaces in a pure form and planes of the facades contrast with the dark green of the surrounding trees and the forest-park landscape. The interior is infiltrated by natural light through large panoramic glazing, which give a natural lightness and blur the boundary between inside and outside.
