The contemporary Lake Side Duplex House was envisioned by Tóth Project Architecture Office on a beautiful waterside plot, on the southern shore of Lake Balaton, Hungary. Its function is a summer cottage in which there are two separated flats implementing for the separated, undisturbed rest of several generations. The location and mass of the building reflect the significance of the view originating from the conditions of the plot so the most rooms are orientated to the lake.
The structural and functional system of the house is determined by the connection of the two outside volumes, the circulating areas between them and the large terraces. he interior design of the house follows the modern exterior appearance. The natural materials used by the interior designer match well to the acrylic floor-covering, the large glass surfaces and the stainless and high-gloss materials. This cottage has parameters close to passive houses so despite to its large basic area it can be economically operated. [Photos and information provided via e-mail by Tóth Project Architecture Office]
