Play of light | LK&PROJEKT | Architect of the Year Awards 2021

LK&PROJEKT: Winner of Architect of the Year Awards 2021. Project «PLAY OF LIGHT» has been devised for people who value comfort of use, modernity and originality in construction. The building’s light form rises to the height of two floors. It perfectly fits into the landscape in areas sheltered by forest, open-air plots, and in single-family housing estates alike. Large-area glazing on both floors ensures proper daylight and perfect view of the surroundings. The spacious garage, extended to the front of the building, minimizes the plot’s area taken for access road, thus leaving more space for its real development. Therefore, there is room in the close vicinity of the house for a swimming pool, a playground for children, or a decorative garden.

The building’s modern structure is highlighted with bright plasters and wooden and metal finishing elements that enhance visual experience of the building’s lightness. On the ground floor the hall leads to the naturally lit living room and the spacious kitchen with dining room. From here, we can get also to the study and utility rooms in the building. The first floor accommodates 3 bedrooms with bathrooms, an additional room and cloak rooms. The relaxing comfort zone of wide, sheltered terraces is also accessible from there.

This modern house of unique architecture, with 278 square meters usable floor area, is perfectly suited for a large, multi-generational family, who value unconventionality, functionality and aesthetics. The design also leaves many land development opportunities, which makes it not only visually attractive, but also universal in meeting the investor’s needs.
