The main part of the building is finished with gabion baskets used as an outer skin – kind of camouflage to blend the house in with the landscape.

Inside, the most striking part is a living zone, which is double-height open space.

Inspiration from architect:

Old stone church, towering ruins of Morsko and Ogrodzieniec castles, Monadnocks scattered around – rising several meters above the surrounding terrain… In this picturesque scenery, using simply shaped volumes and local materials House in the…. is trying to become an integral part of its surrounding and to fit well into the landscape.
