One of three finalists in the “Best Project of Private Residence” category is house within the wild landscapes of Karelia.

The project of a private house in Karelia, Russia, is developed by BALKA.STUDIO architectural bureau. Architectural solutions for this house are conditioned by its geographic location. The architect had to solve the task of opening as much views over the vast of Karelia from the house. Lots of glazing seem to neglect the borders between the nature and the house, abandon the humdrum of urbanism and fill the interiors with ever changing colors of wildlife.
