South House is a beautiful, minimalist realisation by the architectural firm Tyurin + Partners. Founders Alexander and Maria Tyurin created a project for a client whose construction company promotes the idea of eco-houses. This is how South House was born.
The architectural studio Tyurin + Partners was founded in 2018 by Alexander and Maria Tyurin. The studio now employs three passionate architects. For them, architecture and interiors are more than a set of rules, drawings and numbers. Thanks to the variety of projects, the architects learn a lot and can constantly enrich their knowledge in the field of architecture. This enables them to surprise their (future) clients with innovations and they never repeat themselves. The family consisting of a married couple with two children approached Tyurin + Partners for the South House project situated in the outskirts of the city of Samara, Russia. The main task was to renovate the old house and create an ecologically responsible interior for modern people who care about the planet. In this ecological house, everything had to be both environmentally friendly and functional, which proved to be an interesting challenge for the team of architects. It also quickly became clear that the family had major differences of opinion regarding their future accommodation. Tyurin + Partners were faced with a difficult task, as they had to take into account the wishes of each family member and, above all, not forget to consider environmental friendliness as a main pillar.
Sober interior with lots of natural light that radiates peace and tranquillity.
The light and airy atmosphere of the eco-house emphasises the main ideology of the project: conscious consumption and the use of renewable resources. The ideology of economy and modernity was the solution for meeting the ecological needs of the customers. Only natural renewable materials were used for the construction, along with recycled materials such as the plastic chairs in the dining room. Furthermore, the sober interior, with plenty of natural light, radiates peace and tranquillity thanks to the subtle interplay of different rooms. Wood accents give the minimalist rooms a warm, elegant look. Textures such as marble and light colours in the furniture complement the palette beautifully. All this helps to create a summery atmosphere, which is even maintained in the harsh Russian winter. Architectural firm Tyurin + Partners managed to combine all the family's wishes and find a fine line of aesthetics that pleased everyone. The project has become a perfect example of stylish minimalism with its purity, integrity and natural textures.
