A Modern House In The Polish Village

Scroll
Words

Based in a small Polish village Krotoszowice, the house built by RS+ Architecture separates from the surrounding mundane buildings while opening to the most exciting views of the village’s natural landscape.

Consisting mainly of the houses from 60s and 70s, the surrounding architecture is very diverse and chaotic. Interested in the landscape of the area rather than its buildings, the architects from Polish practice RS+ designed a house that fits to existing topography and becomes an interesting architectural landmark of the village. Hilly area and forest in the background became the main points of reference in the project. A single-storey building with garage and glass foyer between, it owes its characteristic body to the local law that requires sloping roofs. Covered with black brick and surrounded by a concrete fence, the house’s interior shows a slightly more delicate image. There, white surfaces of walls and slanted ceiling are complemented by glass, polished concrete and natural wood floors, wooden stairs and dark accessories.
