It’s not often that you see architecture and design projects that have eluded their Romanian roots and been exposed to the world, but every once in a while, a gorgeous reminder of the country’s mesmerizing locale slips through the cracks. Enter the Carpat House — an impeccably realized project from Dumitru Martiniuc (and a number of other notable artists) depicting life in Romania’s lush forests.

The Carpat House immerses itself within the wilds of Romania’s Carpathian Mountains — a timber and stone dwelling that stands in magnificent contrast to the surrounding wooded area. Situated atop a rocky, lakefront outcrop, the wood-clad home utilizes a dark black exterior treatment that references traditional timber-burning styles such as Sugi Ban to create a shadowy escape. At the forefront of Carpat lies a single rectangular swimming area, outfitted with three lounge chairs that look to have been crafted from solid stone. Inside, a dramatically lit living area gives way to wood, metal, and marble furniture, while vertically oriented full-length windows provide panoramic views of the mist-hued hills. Generous skylights and oriented glass provide ample light within the bedroom and bathroom areas, alongside an interestingly crafted fence-like structure that houses an immensely unique tree, piercing the center of the structure.
