The vacation season is on, and many of us are dreaming of a holiday somewhere – on a beach, in a big city or in the woodlands or highlands. Here’s a cool vacation house to spend a holiday there. This camouflaged among the trees house is called Marysville, and it surprises with its exterior at once: the dwelling is covered with timber completely and there are a lot of windows chaotically placed here and there. The design was influenced by mountain lodges there for it appears to effortlessly blends into its forest context.
The house completed by Steffen Welsch Architects and designed in conjunction with Terminus Studio sees the home as an enlarged studio. The open plan space composed of a single communal room, utilities and a mezzanine, which serves as a sleeping platform. Square openings punctuate the façade at random to provide light and views, while a large glass façade leads seamless onto a deck made from the same material as the exterior envelope.
The interior décor features white walls, wooden ceilings and floors, and there are gorgeous wooden pendant lamps that highlight the high ceilings. The furniture is wooden and simple, nothing distracts attention from the views and its small amount makes the space look larger; you can also see a cool black hearth that adds coziness and brings warmth to the space.
This house is just a vacation one, so the structure itself isn’t very large but energy-efficient and comfortable for relaxation and merging with nature. Much natural light, gorgeous views and of course much different wood in decor help the owners feel really close to nature.
