House # 2

House #2 is part of Mumdjidan project - to preserve and revitalize abandoned village high in the mountains of Southern Bulgaria.
The design is influenced by the austere minimalism of the life in the mountains  200 years ago, both as aesthetic and as a simplicity of daily interactions.
The house is a "tool" to dissect the everyday activities into well defined, "basic", simplified to the "bare bones" building blocks - food, sleep, work, meditation, hygiene.
Every designated area creates specific to its' activity atmosphere without being clearly separated from the rest of the house.
House # 2 is a temporary, "retreat" dwelling, intended for a single occupant.
