Polish architects Le 2 Workshop shared with us their project Doublesingle Storey House, located in Grabowa, Poland. The house is to be completed in 2011. More images and architect’s description after the break.

Doublesingle Storey House is located in Grabowa in a beautiful area on the slope above the stream.

The goal was to design a building that meets the expectations of clients while preserving the unique naturalness of the surrounding. The idea of creating the doublesingle storey layout came of our willing to enable the residents freely enter and exit the building no matter where they are. It was also a very natural way of slope dedicated floor plan development.

Shape and form of the house follow the sun path and site’s panorama in order to deliver clear interior view openings on the forest, meadow and the stream. We proposed aged and fawn wooden planks for the façades – the most often seen type of façade in rural architecture typical for this region. These would be obtained from disassembled local sheds. The simplicity of form resulting from smooth slope-house-slope transition, use of the raw building envelope and minimized environment interference are the major features of the Doublesingle Storey House.
