House in the mountains

kropka studio as Architects

House in the mountains is the modest, rural home for a 5-person family. It is situated next to Bielsko-Biała, on a longish, sloping site, in Beskid Śląski mountains. It is set in green, hilly scenery with great view over mountainous landscape and the nearby valley.


The two-storey building was integrated into the slope so that only the upper black volume was visible from the driveway. It is crowned with traditional pitched roof coverd with standing seam metal cladding. The same material covers also the facade of this part of the building.

 

This volume is additionally cut with a glass connector separating the main day zone from the bedroom. Windows of this level are designed in a way to provide southwestern lighting and scenic views of the surrounding mountain landscape.

 

The lower floor, partially sunken in to the hill, has been finished with architectural concrete slabs.

 

Lower level of the house includes an entrance area, garage with technical room and three bedrooms for children. This storey on three sides is located below the existing ground level, and the fourth external wall opens to the garden with a view of the picturesque landscape of the Silesian Beskids. The upper level consist of living area with a master bedroom - which has its own bathroom and wardrobe. The day zone is centered around a wide kitchen island and a recreation area with a fireplace.

 

Simple floor plans , high ceilings and huge fixed windows framing mountainous view tries to enhance the sense of space of this house.
