Pine House / Line Design Studio

Right where Russia brushes up against Finland, Estonia, and Latvia, there lies a quiet, woodsy stretch of land not too far from the former capital, St Petersburg. Abutting the Baltic Sea, this green patch is where Line Design Studio imagines building its conceptual “Pine House,” a boxy domicile that sits neatly within its environment without sacrificing creature comforts.

A vertical structure informs the build, with two concise floors broken into living, dining, and resting spaces. A wooden interior reinforces the organic conceit, with cushy furniture that encourages the owners to lounge and stares out the enormous windows in the front and rear end of the building. Beneath the back window, the geometric shape of the house allows for a built-in wooden deck, lit by the interior and lifted above hills by metal stilts, further blending an indoor/outdoor lifestyle.
