“We have reviewed all design inside, leaving only the roof and exterior walls. The approach of our company is that we do a turnkey home. We work closely with other architects, for example, Paul Ross, or draw themselves. Then apply to obtain a permit for the construction, planning, plumbing, electricity and construction work. If we build new buildings, we prefer to work with stone and concrete, but we also build a wooden house.”— says anouche.

Side facades are lined with sheet metal Plannja. On the short sides of the house facades covered with boards oiled cedar. This wood does not require maintenance for 30 years. In the house made a further insulating layer, as a result of steel walls about 1m in thickness. Also performed the gutters and flow.

The garden around the house was abandoned: the elderly woman who lived there could not him a full grooming. “We have removed damaged trees, removed a lot of bushes. The plot is scheduled while the lawn”. — said the architect.

“If you have a house and you are thinking about whether to demolish the building, carefully consider the circumstances. Old wooden house is easy to disassemble and dispose of its remains. And in the old stone house can be materials that are difficult to recycle. For example, asbestos, which according to Swedish law you want to send for disposal in special centers recycling” continues anouche.

“The landscape and how it is used in the design of the house, is very important. It’s not just grass, gravel and a house in the middle of their neighborhood should be harmonious,” — said Anush.

Not so long ago, Sweden changed the standards on the layout of the kitchen (analogue of the Russian SNiP — approx.ed). “Now allowed to put the sink and stove next to each other, so owners need not look far from hot pots”.

All rooms have floors made of oak in white oil, with the exception of the lobby. There used tile with imitation wood.

On the second floor there are three bedrooms. Skylights give nice lighting: “We made the beams visible, painted them in a dark color. They give a good contrast,” says anouche.

In the bathroom on the second floor there is a large window, but architects do not mind: “With sloping attic Windows, nobody will see the hosts, but they can see the sky, clouds, and stars. Imagine how wonderful it is to stand in the shower and look at the sky and trees outside, but it’s just amazing,” says anouche.
