SYAA House

Dumbrava Vlăsiei is a special place in the middle of nature, hidden in its secret forest clearing, surrounded by a wheat field.

We decided to build with wood because it is a natural, renewable, archetypal and friendly material. This material has reached remarkable technological performances, so we used the Cross Laminated Timber system. Then, we chose to design a slant roof house, in accordance with the context and local tradition.

There have been several design decisions inspired by the local architecture and the location: a large, covered, south-facing terrace; a shape of the house adapted to the shape of the parcel; a care for the relationship of the house with the neighborhoods: the central park or the other houses.
