Lodz-based firm Tamizo Architects has completed the visualization of ‘Warsaw House’, an impressive and contemporary piece of residential architecture that will be located at the edge of a forest outside of Warsaw, Poland.

The firm explains that when the client approached them with the desire to build a home on the forested plot of land, they “knew that an extremely minimalist design” was required. “We are minimalists who strongly believe in simple, but not necessarily easy solutions,” they say. The open-plan interior is designed to be positioned between two elongated horizontal slabs, which make up both the foundation of the house underneath, and the ceiling overhead. The roof cantilevers out over both ends of the house—providing protection for the carport on one side, and shade for an outdoor living space on the other. The liberal use of glass allows an abundance of natural light into the home, and highlights the striking white volumes within. The uncluttered conception of the interior is defined by a neutral color palette: everything from the furniture and wooden floors, to the light fixtures and sporadic interior pieces, are finished in taupes and beiges. “Their functionality harmoniously combines with the style and form of the project,” say the architects. “Their unique character defines the whole space, that defies stereotypes.”
