Two adults and three kids spend almost every weekend at their summer house. They have a bedroom at the mansard floor. Every morning the kids join their parents in the mansard and they spend the morning together.
The family comes to their summer house for a weekend and like all working people, they dream of having a good sleep on Saturday and Sunday after a hard week in town. But all the children are early birds. They wake their parents up early in the morning and the latter have to forget about quiet sleep:). Of course, greeting the morning in the company of one’s kids is very nice, but they have decided to suggest an unusual option when everybody will be together without disturbing each other and everybody will be happy.
The parents are sleeping, the children run in, but instead of jumping over their mom and dad’s heads or watching cartoons, their attention and cheerful morning energy is turned to other opportunities: they are lured by a staircase leading up to two top levels and a small playhouse, where they can enjoy playing while giving their parents extra 30 minutes of nap!
The interior has two basic colours: white and wood colour. We didn’t use any other bright colours. They are going to emerge naturally while the family will be interiorizing the space. The white colour and wood colour will be a calm background for that. The entire structure (a podium with a bed and mats, as well as two upper levels and a staircase) is presented as builder’s work – timber frame and pine furniture board.
As it always happens during the execution of a plan, there were different surprises and complications. For example, due to design features, we did not manage to install a big window, which was originally conceived in the project. Instead, we set many mansard windows, which filled the space with a big amount of light, helped to produce the feeling of lightness and transparency of wooden construction.
