It is the first house whose elevation has been made entirely of a plastic insulating material -Thermopian. Usually, this material has been used only for roofing. Thermopian has good thermal, acoustic and insulating properties and it can have any required colour.

l-house-1

We were intent on the house form to relate to the proportions of a Polish house but at the same time we wanted it to be simple and redefined. One distinctive leaning wall is a result of a compromise between a simple shape and the local law, which requires building in line with plot borders.

    Why don’t some Architects like eaves? Does it not rain in Poland?
    I do love the use of the Thermopian and the colour choice is also a great decision.
    To have a bathroom above the main entry seems a little odd, I imagine pressing the doorbell and the sound of the toilet flushing coincides (just kidding), but the rest of the plan works well, actually internal rooms are a no no especially if it’s not an apartment, you have four walls you should use them.
    Every one knows awkward angles in a building are nasty things to deal with in real life. I wonder what it’s purpose is?

    Over all it has great form and a stylish use of materials, it’s short comings are in it’s plan and it’s actual livability.

      why does it need an eave… look at image 2, is that a concealed gutter?

      the color looks great. Clean diagram, clean design. bravo!

        Eaves were invented to help weather proof a building from rain getting in to window and door jams. They also stop high summer sun from getting in to the house to prevent over heating.

    Why do we have to look at architectural renderings?

    Aren’t there enough buildings out there that PROVE what the architect has intended? Curious for reality!

  • sullka

    mmm……these guys changed their name, they use to be something like “momo” or something similar.

    WHile I do like all their work, I first found them on a rendering site, evermotion or something, all their projects are renderings.

    I hope they get to build their stuff.

    Hey look At my window, It’s facing a WALL ! how Nice !…
    Well exterior is really seducing with these smooth looking walls but maybe they messed up on that really really useless wall…

  • martin

    think about the atmosphere in the night in the little space! it can be amazing to sit, read a book near that window if you use some exterior lighting near the wall. or maybe they want to put some greenery on that wall? i don’t know..

    So innovative, the bar looks like the house likes the club likes house I’m afraid this is why so many clients are afraid of “contemporary architecture”; giving some character to each project is not a bad thing……….contemporary architecture should be warm and pleasant too!

  • josep

    forgot to mention: but killer renders!

  • ap

    Thermopian or Thermoplan?

  • finan

    this thing is bad!!!

  • imagine

    anyway, it’s expressive…!

    Here I was, about to compliment it’s otherworldly sleakness, only to realize upon closer inspection that it hasn’t even been built in this world, yet. As least it has potential I guess!

    Wow… this is what Darth Vader’s vacation home probably looks like.
