When choosing a house, each buyer wants the future housing to reflect his aesthetics and philosophy, standing out from the rest.
Today, Russian manufacturers offer houses of the most unusual and unexpected architectural forms.
We talk about the key features of residential buildings that have a cubic, round and triangular shape.
Triangular structures have existed since the time of the Egyptian pyramids and dugouts. “We will never know who first came up with the use of a triangular shape in the construction of houses, but the founder of modern A-frames is considered to be the “architect of happiness” – Andrew Geller. It was he who consolidated this architectural style in modern suburban construction by building a triangular house in 1955 in the USA. His project was published in the New York Times and made a splash in the suburban real estate market,” comments Anton Kuvshinov, founder and project manager of Shalash.
In the USSR, this form was at one time widely used in the construction of pioneer camps and country houses, but then it was forgotten for decades, Kuvshinov emphasized. However, according to him, the fashion for the A-frame has recently returned. Perhaps people are just tired of the “boxes” and want to give their inspiration more variety, the expert noted.
The main feature and main advantage of A-frame houses is an unusual architectural form, the founder of the Shalash project believes. Thanks to her, they always look and feel very cozy, fit perfectly into the landscape, do not dominate nature.
In terms of cost and assembly speed, the A-frame does not differ from other houses in this, Kuvshinov explained. He stressed that a model of such a house would cost from 65 thousand rubles. per square meter.
