A house in Poland with an expressive triangle attic block

This house by doomo is built near Krakow, on the southern slope of the building plot with extensive panoramic views on the ranges of Karpaty and Beskidy mountains. The architects wanted to reinterpret the “Zakopianski Styl” (an old architectural style found around the Polish mountains regions). Thus, they’ve created an expressive triangle attic block, which goes beyond the outline of the walls. Together with the plinth and openwork railings it creates a space functionally comparable to the traditional veranda. Complementary to this concept are the Canadian Cedar shingles and boards. These natural materials, ageing every year, will change the building’s visual impact by blending it more and more into the landscape.
