From the architect. The building is situated in an industrial area of Poland. It's been designed for an indigent family, which appreciates its functionality, as well as low maintenance and construction cost.

The plan of this bungalow is based on a square, where internal and external spaces are combined. The capsule containing all technological elements - bathroom, kitchen, pantry and an alternative source of heating in the form of a fireplace, is situated in the central part of the house. By each entrance there is a net used as wood storage. It acts like a screen changing its appearance depending on amount of wood inside.
