Each section of the project varies in size, shape, and color, creating the unusual aesthetic of a patchwork blanket. Dachas are traditionally constructed using any materials which happened to be available [9], so they tend to be unique structures that are highly personalized.

Designed with the aim of providing a comfortable space for a family, Volga House includes a variety of verandas and a plot for a future summer cottage. The project is nestled alongside the Volga River in Tverskaya, Russia where the weather tends to be cool, so the designers have integrated insulation panels made from squared timber.
