Casa Fly

Visiting the island repeatedly in the process of looking for the right plot of land we were impressed by traditional stone houses in cities and the countryside of Mallorca. 'Pedra en sec' is a very simple and inexpensive local dry stone construction technique and it has been used here since prehistoric times. In 2018, it was declared Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. Learning from local architecture, the house re-uses its traditional elements in contemporary typology and incorporates them along with a simple energy efficiency concept based on natural ventilation and heat accumulating properties of its massive walls.

Two Lakes Residence

We had a pleasure to work on the project of a private residence in a pristine birch forest in the south of Poland. Designed and executed with the utmost care, the residence became a private sanctuary, distant from the haste of the client’s everyday life. We took part in every stage of the project, touring the site before even the foundations were laid, advising the architect and the client from the conception, through the execution and until the final styling.  The client had trusted us fully, giving us almost unrestrained freedom to pursue our vision. A small number of very specific functional requirements, as well as a study of the client's other residences, served as a foundation of a truly bespoke design. The client asked f... More
