House in the style of constructivism
Constructivism, born at the beginning of the last century, has not lost its relevance today. Modern industrial design, urban architecture, private western architecture — everywhere you can see the influence of constructivism, born in Russia. In Russia in private architecture constructivist motives are not clearly visible, but in the West, this style has become firmly established in the arsenal of modern architects and designers who design homes and interiors.
The main difference of constructivism in architecture and interior — clean lines, minimalism in details and a strongly marked performance of houses and interiors. Interiors in the style of constructivism, first of all, is naked unadorned functionality and additional details that do not bear the functional load.
Curiously enough, buildings, performed in the style of constructivism, perfectly fit into the environment. This is when it comes to country houses. With urban architecture it is more complex. Often constructivist «masterpieces» tear the existing architectural landscape of the city and look to put it mildly, strange.
Building with a touch of constructivism fit well in the natural landscapes. And it is not only the merit of the architects. If we recall the basic trend of style — minimalism and functionality, it becomes clear why such purely functional buildings look good in natural landscapes. Nature is a supporter of minimalism.
