Shaping the buildings fit into the existing sculpture of the area. Locating the block of a residential building, the fault of the terrain was used. Due to this fact, the effect of hanging the building over the meadow was achieved, as well as providing privacy for future users. The horizontal solid of the residential building with wide glass on the south side, show a view of the mountain panorama, practically from every room.
On a spacious landscaped plot overlooking the Karkonosze Mountains, surrounded by a forest, a residential and outbuilding was designed. The residential building is situated in the central part of the plot. This results in a natural division of the land into an “organized” zone with an orchard, vegetable garden and outbuilding in the northern part of the plot and a “natural flower meadow” zone in the south. The outbuilding is designed on a flat area, at the northern border of the plot, sheltered by forest and near a vegetable garden and orchard.
The contemporary form of the designed buildings finds a reference in regional architecture. The rectangular view and symmetrical gable roof refer to the urban layout of rural area. The use of natural materials and motifs, e.g. formwork of peak facades, concrete underpinning, or tile roofing, ensure that the buildings are adapted to local buildings.
The structure of the residential building was created based on a collage of three material elements: architectural concrete underpinning, a solid ground floor wall, between which glass fillings and masonry division walls were used. The whole is completed by the supplied top facades, covered with formwork from wood fired by the method of Shou Sugi Ban. Together with the roof, they form a consistent color element.
