The greatest advantage of the plot is the wonderful view. The idea was for the house to be a framework that crops this view. Consequently, the building that emerged as the most appropriate is fully open to the mountain landscape, opening up the same view to all the interior spaces.
As the plot is located in an absolute wilderness, there was the problem of security. The solution was to “invert” the building, so that only one corner touches the ground and the rest hangs over the edge of the hill. This solution meant that part of the ground floor where the bedrooms are located was raised to the level of the first floor.
The problem of safety was also due to the situation of the house on a steep slope, with a high risk of landslides, increasingly frequent in the Polish mountains. In order to limit the impact on the ground, the house was conceived as a bridge, with rain water flowing underneath it naturally.
The realities of the mountain landscape, as well as of local law, did not allow a gable roof. The house took the form of a typical barn, supported by three thin walls.
In order to strengthen the building, the walls were reinforced by the slopes of the ”inverted” roof, increasing the sense of security and giving lightness to the building. Because of its shape and the water flowing beneath it, the house began to resemble an ark.
