From the architect. Krostoszowice is a village in a southern part of Silesia (region in Poland). The Investor owns large parcel with a significant slope in the east. The building should to stand on the highest point of the parcel, close to the road, in the north- west corner.

The surrounding buildings are very diverse and chaotic. There are mainly houses of the 60's and  70's of the twentieth century.

The surrounding landscape  interested us more than unexciting development context. Hilly area and forest in the background has become a main point of reference. The building fits to existing topography, coincides with the landscape. House is open towards the most interesting views and separate from the nearest buildings.

Product Description. We covered all main solids by natural slate (Rathscheck Schiefer). We wanted to create dark homogeneous solids and choosing a slate was perfect solution for covering roofs and walls by one lasting material, composing  really good with concrete and natural wood.
