There is nothing better than being able to enjoy nature in a beautiful country house.Tranquility, the sound of wind passing through the leaves, and of course very green, this is what people are looking for when they take refuge inside to get away from the hustle and bustle, the noise, the pollution and madness of urban.
Therefore, when choosing or designing a home field some important things must be taken into consideration.
Projects of country Houses
The first, obviously, is the strategic location that allows a good visibility of the nature, so that you can position the windows, balconies and terraces with view to the mountains, fields, forests, rivers, lakes, woods, etc.
And all of this is of course ensuring the maximum of privacy, with the looks of the neighbors as well far, because as it says in the music of Tim Maia, “what I want is peace” – even more in a country house.
The nice thing about the villas is that generally there is more freedom for design, because in most cases, there is no legislation that requires the standardization of the houses, there are no parameters for zoning, even because the land in the interior are large. But, it is worth to consult the local government before building.
Materials for the cottage
A feature very present in the houses field is the use of natural materials, after all if the goal is to connect with nature, nothing better than bringing nature inside the home also. Stones and wood can (if the law permits and you have the availability) to be taken off the land itself and used in the work.
Materials that mimic wood and stone are also used, the concrete, the cement burned in the floors, the porcelain tile that resembles wood, or even the deck of pvc, it can replace natural wood and is less impactful from an ecological point of view.
Large glass surfaces are also welcome to take full advantage of the views and make the integration between the internal and external environment. It is very common to use port the-counter or door-window in the environments ground floor of the house in the field.
Even better if these doors are retractable to integrate even more the environments and allow for a full ventilation of the interior.
House of Field Ecological
To save financial resources and energy the houses of the field should take maximum advantage of ventilation and natural lighting, avoiding the use of air-conditioners for cooling or heating.
Sustainable strategies to acclimatise the environments are important, and villas using some of these techniques can result in a charming house, ecologically correct, with the use of thick walls of stone or concrete, for example, which retains the heat during the day keeping the internal environment cool and the night dissipates the heat to the interior heating the rooms.
This is a technique ideal for homes in climates sub-tropical, the interior of São Paulo, Paraná, Santa Catarina, Rio Grande do Sul, Minas.
The green roofs are also welcome in houses of field, since it avoids the direct action of the sun on the tiles and contribute to the formation of a microclimate more pleasant, especially in dry regions.
And since we are talking about in country houses, ecological, it is worth remembering that it is possible to make the design of the villa while respecting the slope of the natural ground, that is, there is no need to level the ground to build, on the contrary the gaps are great for generating new views.
In this way it is possible to reduce the number of trees cut down, removed stones and on top of the buildings on pilotis allows for a greater natural ventilation and protects the home from moisture from the ground.
Other sustainable resources may be employed in the houses of the field, especially when there are no connections of sewer, water and electric. For this, the house can rely on septic tanks, rain water harvesting for irrigation, cleaning and purified up to the consumer, solar heating for the showers, plates of solar energy.
If there is no supply of water you need to check if there are any supply network that is possible to make a connection or even if there are sources of drinking water that may collect water for the house.
Decorating – country Home
In the home decor field, or in the design of interior architecture, some people prefer to adopt the style rustic, with cement floors burned, tile, hydraulic, large kitchen with wood stove, oven for pizzas, barbecue and a huge table to gather friends and family in the late afternoon to prozar and eat, of course!
The style home of grandmother, with floors of wood marked by time, made of demolition wood, lamps to decorate, harvested flowers in the garden, the curtains rendadas, a sofa hot in front of the fireplace and is ready with the perfect setting of a traditional country house.
However, there are those who prefer a modern country house, with less rusticity, and parts of the sophisticated design that by no means need to be less comfortable than the rustic houses.
Including can have the same elements: fireplace, large kitchen to entertain, even the cement floor is burnt, and the wood, only that it planned another way, to give another mood to the home field.
In interior design, in the details of decoration, everything must be thought of in accordance with the usability and profile of those who will attend the house of field, can be a couple with no children seeking a refuge to view and enjoy nature. You can still be a large family with brothers, sons, cousins, grandparents. The architecture and its interior should reflect the “soul” of its residents.
The garden of the villa
Even if the home field is inserted in the middle of a forest or a field, the outdoor area maintains its importance, I would say that the work of the landscape acquires an even greater importance since the contemplation of the external area is the greatest desire in a country home.
However, the work of the landscape architect in a country house does not need to be inserting new species of plants, bring in vegetation that do not belong to the place, this can develop your project used regional varieties in your landscaping, or in other cases work with the “landscaping” dry, without vegetation, at least in the immediate surroundings of the residence.
Among the elements of the external area of a home field brazilian the pool is a constant element in function of the weather, the positioning of the swimming pool and living area external should take into consideration the views of the landscape and also the solar orientation. Therefore, no one remains in an outdoor swimming pool that is in the shade.
The integration between the kitchen, dining table and the garden are a great strategy to gather family and friends, gardens and orchards next to the kitchen also are ideal.
