Yakusha Studio has named one of its recent residential projects HMARA. The fact that this term is the Ukrainian translation of 'cloud' already hints at the style of the residence. Indeed, the images show a beautiful home that fits in perfectly with what the studio likes to call 'live minimalism'.
Two pillars underpin the inspiration for this project: a sense of lightness and a connection with nature. In line with the serene nature of a cloud, the spaces have a quiet atmosphere that the chaos of the outside world cannot possibly disturb. This is the essence of live minimalism, namely, eliminating unnecessary noise and returning to the essence. Victoria Yakusha, the founder of Yakusha Studio, wants to provide people with a home in which they can focus on their connection with nature. Similarly, the studio's minimalist designs always focus on honouring our senses.
The clay, rough stone, solid wood and natural fabrics create a sensuous and lively concept.
In the HMARA project, nature comes to us through floor-to-ceiling windows. In this way, the interior is flooded with natural light and, at the same time, the surrounding nature is drawn into the building. This connection with nature is also incorporated in the raw textures and earthy tones that characterise the interior spaces. In the background, for example, clay was chosen, which is a special material in Ukraine. Initially, it was used to complete the walls of a traditional house. Here at Yakusha Studio, the clay combined with rough stone, solid wood and natural fabrics creates a sensuous and lively concept. The end result is a serene whole that makes earthy materials fit into a contemporary living space in the best way possible.
Calmness, nature, and connection are the key roles in this design and guarantee an environment that takes living to a higher level. One thing is certain, in this residence you never lose touch with the essence. Whereas the materials used – such as wood and clay – carry a heaviness with them, the overall experience in the HMARA project is feather-light. Or should we say cloud-light in this case?
