When the owners of this matchbox house had the original structure built in 1999, they only thought of the name as a description of the size and shape of the house. They hadn’t realized at that point that by 2010, their home would, in fact, resemble a matchbox.
The house, located in Suurupi, Estonia, started out as a small rectangular home, but as the size and needs of the family grew, it was apparent that the house needed to follow suit.
Expansion began with a patio extending the living space to the immediate outdoors. Then came the addition of a storage room, swimming pool, and eventually a second floor with a bonus room and sauna.
Arhitektid Muru&Pere designed an addition that would give the owners even more room for growth. It extends out over the terrace.
Not only was additional space annexed onto the house, but the structure exploded outward from the home, giving the family a second floor that is ultimately roomier and more distinctive than the first.
