House in Antsla

This house is located by a small lake in Southeast of Estonia in a little town called Antsla. It’s a typical small Estonian town with a population of around 1600. It’s geographical location and history is reflected in the dialect as well as in culture. The building was designed by three young professionals from Salto Architects. In small communities everybody knows everybody so your house becomes your hideaway fortress.Client had two certain wishes- brick as the building material and spacious rooms. Facing the lake the house took a form of an arch, accommodating the entrance and a covered terrace beneath.

Size: 250 m2     Design team: Karli Luik, Ralfo Lõoke, Kristiina Arusoo    Completed: 2011

Antsla asub Eesti väikelinnale tüüpilise u 1600 elanikuga Kagu-Eestis. Eriliseks teeb selle koha geograafiline paiknemine ja ajalugu, mis peegelduvad võru keeles ja kultuuris. Sealset künklikku maastikku iseloomustavad rohked järved ja pisisood. Nagu ühele õigele väikesele kogukonnale omane tunnevad kõik kõiki ja isiklikuks pelgupaikaks saab kodu, mida tuntakse ka vahel kindluse mõiste all. Seda see kolme noore arhitekti loodud järve kaldal silda viskav maja kindlasti ka on. Klient tuli Salto Arhitektide juurde kahe kindla sooviga- tellis kui ehitusmaterjal ja ruumikad toad. Avatud võlvi all asuvad sissepääs ja terrass.
