Fabulous Remodeling of a House for a Family that Loves their Neighborhood

By • Mar 14, 2018

This extension was made for an old house belonging to a family that grew in size and who preferred to expand their current home instead of moving out. It was carried out by the architectural firm replus design bureau led by its professional architects Khrystyna Badzyan and Dmytro Sorokevych.

Located in Lviv, Ukraine, the construction has an area of 360 square meters distributed in its 4 levels. By adding the extension in the interior courtyard, the architects divided the house into two separate sections.

The house that was previously built, following the principles of traditional architecture, should be open to space and nature. For this main purpose, huge built-in containers for plants and large trees, were placed on the first floor and on the second floor terrace, near the glass to be fully connected to the interior.
When choosing materials for decoration, the architects preferred only raw and natural materials.

Since the clients had to leave the house during the reconstruction period, the architects faced the main task of carrying out the project in a few months. So they decided to use a thin and lightweight prefabricated frame for the main construction. This could be mounted quickly and allowed them to work during the cold season, which was just the time of year in which the project was carried out.
