Original Family Home in Poland “Modernizing” Traditional Architecture

This unusual looking single family home comes from Wizja Architects and is located in Burów, a nice village close to Krakow, Poland. From afar, the residence looks like a giant wooden monolith which makes an intriguing contrast with its landscape. Here is some interesting information from the architects: “The main idea behind the project, was to create a contemporary interpretation of a traditional single family house of the Małopolska region. In an attempt to achieve this, we have simplified the local building form, through a search for clear building edges. The façade materials were restricted to Siberian larch accompanied by glass. The retaining wall in the southern part of the site, was made from raw reinforced concrete. One of the most noticeable building’s features is a 3,2 x 4,5 m window, that came from a clients desire to have a panoramic view from the living room on a distant airport, which enables watching airplanes start or land.” We wish the architects had made more photos of the interior design public, as the one room showcased below looks absolutely charming. Interesting approach for a modern country home, wouldn’t you agree ? (Photos by © Wojciech Kryński )- via Arch Daily

    for me it is a little too much wood … with a bit concrete it works like a charm

    I agree.. But maybe with a hint off colour and some white furniture it also would ”light up”! amazing view tho!
