Lubiatowo is located about 2.5 km from the Baltic coastline in the Pomeranian Voivodeship, in Poland. It is a very peaceful and picturesque place, surrounded by beautiful forests. A walking path to the beaches in Lubiatowo leads through a forest, which – depending on the season – is full of berries, blueberries and mushrooms. The beach in Lubiatowo was created from white quartz sand and is considered one of the most beautiful beaches on the coast.

This wonderful, natural surroundings make the settlement an attractive holiday destination. Here, our clients decided to open a complex of six small summer houses.

They came to us for help in designing houses from the outside and inside. We decided that the houses should harmonize with the surroundings and be as natural as possible. The houses were created in the technology of wooden skeleton, filled with 15cm mineral wool. The external cladding is boards of Polish larch 8 cm wide connected with tongue and groove, divided in half of the facade. To give modernity, the window recesses and all the planks were finished with black painted steel sheet. The roof was made of steel sheet from Plannja Emka panels also in black. The entrance to the house leads through a wide terrace that allows for larger social gatherings in contact with nature.

The terrace door can be opened wide to increase the living room area. Above the terrace, the roof is made of shading sail, which protects the house from heating and allows you to enjoy the terrace in the light of rain. The sail in front of the house refers to the sea, gives the building a lightness, and together with illuminated garlands creates a charming atmosphere.

The interior of the houses has also been created from natural materials and is maintained in the Scandinavian style. The ground floor of the house is a living room with kitchen anex and a large bathroom. The main element of the living room is a small fireplace standing by the chimney wall finished with small tiles in natural green color. The walls were covered with plasterboard up to incomplete height, so that the boards of larch and the ceiling made of beams were visible. The living room has a sofa bed. The compact kitchen includes all amenities such as a dishwasher or oven with a microwave. The lower cabinets are made of birch plywood and the upper cabinets are made of white lacquer board.

Next to the kitchen is a bathroom that has been finished with the same tiles as the chimney wall, and tiles imitating Terazzo. On the left there is space for a spacious shower with a seat, on the right there is a large steel frame cabinet with a marble top and round mirrors. On the first floor there are two bedrooms: a large with a double bed and a smaller with two single beds. The furniture in the rooms were made of varnished birch plywood in combination with black steel frames. Here a natural green color appears too: in the form of paint on the wall and the color of bedding.
