Close-to-Nature Holiday Residence in Sunny Bulgaria

An apartment including just a bedroom, a kitchen and a huge bathroom and complemented with an outdoor living room and dining area sounds original per se. And when coupled with the beauty of Bulgarian national motifs, such unhackneyed residence becomes a dream holiday destination.

The project of this unusual southern interior for Mojito Club Holiday Residence was worked out by a team of qualified architects. The place is located in a stunning place – on the Black Sea shore of Bulgaria and in the heart of the national park. This fact had a crucial impact on the concept of the interior – contemporary eco-style with elements of Bulgarian national building traditions. The owner of the place wanted the authors to create a comfortable interior with bright injections of local colors and authentic atmosphere.

The most special feature of this interior was its layout. The raw data was a typical hotel room with a tiny bathroom, a small studio room with a dining table that hardly fit in the place, and a long useless corridor. To crown it all, this very apartment was facing the non-sea side. In a word, this could hardly be called a premium-level holiday residence. Still, there was a huge positive thing too – a pretty big courtyard. Traditionally Bulgarian people spend most of their summer time in the garden – here they have rest, cook, eat and receive guests. And the authors of the project decided to interpret this tradition into a new layout concept – with a living room, dining room and kitchen re-located outdoors! Thus the courtyard was equipped with an outdoor fireplace with a cooking option, a grand dining table and a daybed for afternoon relaxation. All these functional zones are located under an airy rope pergola entwined with wine grapes – one of the national symbols of Bulgaria.

Such a solution allowed for re-using the ex-bedroom as a…spacious bathroom. A floor-to-ceiling window facing the garden and a gorgeous oval Italian bathtub by Boffi with a ceiling-mounted shower head create perfectly relaxing atmosphere with a stunning close-to-nature feeling.

The ex-bathroom space was turned into a compact cooking area with a small bar. Located next to the bedroom, it allows the guests of the hotel to have a light breakfast and morning coffee without leaving the room.

The bedroom is beautiful with its ascetics: here you’ll find just a bed by Restoration Hardware (USA) and a couple of nightstands. The centerpiece of the room is a wall finished with ceramic tiling, which matches similar décor on the bathroom wall. Tiling is one of the most wide-spread construction materials in Bulgaria, which perfectly fit into the interior concept of the apartment.

The corridor is also pretty minimalistic, furnished with just a wardrobe and a small ottoman, both handmade and purchased in an antique store (just like the nightstands and bar stools, by the way).

Interior finishes of the apartment are very laconic and give tribute to the centuries-old traditions of traditional Bulgarian housing: the walls are just plastered and painted pure white, the ceiling is decorated with wooden panels, and the floor is self-leveling by Weber-Vetonit (France).

This project is a great example of departure from stereotyped free-standing architecture, which allowed for creating an unusual residential space, close to the nature, filled with comfort and spiced with local colors.
