Peter Kostelov envisioned Volga House, a modern residence with intriguing wooden features, located in Konakovsky District, Tverskaya region, Russia.

The design of the house is derived from the characteristics of other traditional dwellings in the area and showcases an interesting "patchwork" look.

Wooden planks overlap to create a very original facade. The architects explain that the project was inspired by Soviet-era style of residential construction.

The interiors of Volga House were especially imagined for two adult couples—parents and their grown-up children. On the first floor, the residence accommodates a kitchen and dining room, a guests room, the boiler room, bath and shower plus a summer veranda.

Two bedrooms, two wardrobe rooms, washing room, and two toilet and shower rooms are located on the second floor, while the workshop, sauna, and summer veranda take up the upper floor.

For a more detailed insight of the project’s structure, have a look at the house plans at the end of the post.
