home in Valtournenche

Valtournenche, at 1500 meters above sea level, is famous for its skiing facilities that connect to Cervinia. The typical local house is very low, extremely small in size, completely covered in wood and with warm and feeble lightings. Externally it is possible to find the typical combination of gray stone and wood, of which the local vernacular architecture "rascard" is an exemplary case. The project, instead of enclosing itself in a wooden cocoon, brings into the interior this strong relationship of splitted stone and honey wood. Light colors on the walls, new windows with reduced frames and the open-space kitchen, favor the entry of the snowy landscapes and their lights.  The grey color, applied to some walls and fabric elements, is...

Black Hills Homestead

This project is envisioned as a full-time residence, guest house, and fully functional barn. The essence of the architecture takes cues from the rural agricultural aesthetic on one end of the spectrum and contemporary living on the other end. The conceptual goal of the project is to use the structures to illustrate the evolution of how we use materials, harness natural light, and, most importantly, create and design useful spaces, all while portraying the evolution and modernization of architectural design.The heart of the arrival sequence is the ‘Gateway to the Meadow’. The meadow is framed by a breezeway calling out entry into the Main House and Barn while simultaneously allowing passage through to an outdoor gathering space o... More

Project • By SKOS - Szybejko ArchitekciPrivate Houses


The site is located on the southern side of the Izerskie Mountains, just above the Wojcieszyce village in the Jeleniogórska valley. The sloping and south facing site offers excellent exposure to the natural lighting of the sun as well as magnificent views, what makes it a perfect location for the owner’s dream holiday house. It was very important for us to realise the full potential of this location.The simple, geometric form of the building is characteristic of our practice. However, for this project, we have decided to break it up in order to angle views from all the living spaces towards the most beautiful, interesting points of the Izerskie Mountains skyline. The architectural appearance of the building was also strongly influenced by t... More

Park City Residence

The Park City Residence is a small mountain cabin located adjacent to the historic downtown area of Park City Utah. Working within the restrictive zoning ordinance provided by the city, the Park City Residence resembles a traditional mountain cabin. The design utilizes a sloped roof and traditional exterior form, while black wood siding and a metal roof reference the aging barns seen in the landscape of Utah.The interior however, is a contemporary intervention in contrast with the exterior. Each space within this form is conceptualized as a volume, which create large openings on the sides of the home. Clerestory windows at the basement level, not only provide light, allowing for a functional basement, but give the appearance...
