Houses in Rybnik are the attempt to respond the question ó what the contemporary house means nowadays? An effort focused on searching formal originality is an absolute nonsense therefore, the project of the houses is based on certain data concerning sun orientation, access to the road, vicinity of the forest, as well as view from the road slope.

Piling up of floors in the southern part of the houses allows opening more rooms towards the forest. The roofs are covered by greenery so that they blend in with the surrounding landscape.

    nice objekts, i like the topography! some questions left for me: how is the site plan and the urban situation or surrounding? who uses the houses? how much were the building costs?
