Volga House was designed by architect Peter Kostelov in the Konakovsky District of Tverskaya region, Russia. This modest yet modern rustic style house plan proves that modern, functional living doesn’t have to be all glitz and glam. Quite the opposite, this countryside home is very down to earth both in its look and feel. Starting with the exterior, the home’s wood-clad facade is a collage of assorted wood types and colors, dotted with variously shaped windows and timber-shuttered openings. The simple shape of the house translates to a straightforward layout inside, arranging living spaces across its three storeys. The main floor welcomes you into a large, open concept-space with a kitchen, living/dining area, and a sunny veranda that offers indoor-outdoor living. Up the open staircase, the second floor features bedrooms, bathrooms and dressing rooms. Up on the third level you’ll find a studio, sauna, another bathroom and a summer veranda overlooking the countryside and the Volga River.
