The shape of the house, its dark color and used materials refer to the traditional local pastoral houses. One hundred meters from the house is a museum with buildings constructed in the nineteenth century which have been moved from the bottom of a lake when it was created. The house refers to the tradition but has a modern form, and technical solutions. Characteristic roof and front wall were covered with aspen chips (traditional technology popular in the north of Poland). It smoothly passes from the roof to the wall.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This small cottage is located on the shore of an artificial Czorsztyn lake in southern Poland. The plot is situated on a slope overlooking the lake and two medieval castles. The interior of the house and its location on the site were matched to the view. Wall of the house from the lake is fully glazed. Two sliding windows allow for the opening half of the wall and links the interior to the terrace.
