The building is located in dense forest in the suburbs of Warsaw. The shape and geographical situation of the land is so specific that no scheme based on straight angles yielded satisfactory results. The designed layout is thus based on 60° angle, which allows to open the house to light from the south, minimalise northern facades, while matching the context of the neighbouring buildings.

On the ground floor, next to a large window that stretches along the whole building, the part of the house used during the day is located: the kitchen, the dining room, the living room and the library. The window provides direct access to the garden. The three-car garage and sport equipment storage complement the ground floor. Sleeping rooms, wardrobes and bathrooms for all inhabitants as well as a study are located on the first floor.

The underground part of the building (under the garage) houses a flexible party and fitness space. Depending on the need it can become a fitness room, a home cinema, space to play pool or whatever the inhabitants feel like doing there. The facades of the ground floor are designed using ventilated panels: Aquapanel and glass. The first floor is finished with larch facade boards.Source by STOPROCENT Architekci.
