House on the shores of the Baltic Sea – Latvia
Wind and sunset. Kitesurfers and boats. Dune and meadow – full of tall grass and small flowers with ever-changing colors.
Layers of relative distances, experiences and dimensions are what define life by the sea.
The house is located in the dunes of the Baltic Sea.
Area: 175 m², Year: 2015
The sharp linear thatch structure elegantly intersects with the curved lines of the environment.
Material of the main facade – straw
– was inspired by the traditional construction method in the area.
The challenge was to design a holiday home for a family of kitesurfers where they could relax in the most comfortable way.
All rooms overlook the endless horizon towards the sea. Living room, kitchen, dining room and living room are grouped into one.
The spaces at different levels create a great experience in which social interactions occur.
Light falling from above gives the house a fresh character.
The interior is full of wood and warmth. A little raw and soft at the same time.
Invites and brings a festive mood.
