Here are the pictures of a minimalist forest house located at Tellada, Spain. This house is located in thick woods of North Western Spain. The Spanish architectural firm Rosales & Crecente Architect designed the house with a theme of natural harmony. The wooden house design won the award of Juana de Vega. Foundation of Juana de Vega was found in 1872 by the Countess of Espoz y Mina. One of their activities includes the implementation of Master of Landscape Architecture in collaboration with the University of Santiago, Spain.
Tellada house is a small house built for a single family. This single family home is used as a holiday retreat. It is surrounded by the oak, birch and chestnut trees. Same wood is used to build the exteriors of the house. There is a large open space in front of the house. The house consists of an internal courtyard and several decks. Open deck has wooden chairs to relax and enjoy the nature. Outdoor nature merges with the indoor decor.
Main materials used are wood and glass. The color of the exteriors is similar to that of forest during autumn. Exteriors of the house blend perfectly with the surrounding woods. From outside the house looks like a cottage house, but it is built using modern architectural design. Forest house is a superb example of pragmatic and functional house design that blends very well with the natural environment.
The interiors of the house are done using lighter color wood. As a result forest house looks bright and cheerful. Living area has large glass windows that allow natural light and view. Warm colors of natural light illuminate the interiors. There are no walls separating living room, dining room, library and kitchen. Functional cabinets define the space and separate them from each other. The residents have a huge collection of books.
Dining area is adjacent to kitchen. It has a small four seater dining table and chairs. There is a white ceiling lampshade over the dining table. Kitchen is a narrow passage defined by the cabinets. One end of this narrow passage leads outdoors. Another end has open glass shelves for the storage.
There is an internal courtyard in the middle of the house. It has an interior garden. Neon green color is used in shower and bath area. Interiors of this rustic looking forest house are quite hip and modern.
