Text description provided by the architects. The complex of recreational buildings is located in the buffer zone of the Tatra National Park, near the entrance to the Kościelisko Valley. The plot, inclined towards the south, offers a panoramic view of the Tatra Mountains with the Giewont Mountain dominating in the foreground. The location of the investment has become an inspiration for architecture as well as for functional and spatial solutions.

Eight recreational buildings are designed in a dispersed layout, characteristic of rural buildings. The whole complex is connected by a network of soft-shaped paths, which character and surfaces refer to mountain trails. Individually designed elements of small architecture along with places for recreation and rest, no fences, and naturally shaped greenery create a space conducive to spending time surrounded by nature.

The form of the buildings refers to the traditional architecture of Podhale, giving it a modern dimension through a simple form, using high-quality local materials and workmanship with great attention to detail.

Buildings’ structures have been simplified by closing the eaves in gable walls and thanks to that solution roofs give the impression of a separate form floating above the ground floors of these buildings. Wooden terraces protruding to the depth of eaves and the roof volume create one form.

Walls covered with warm white plaster correspond to wooden elements of the facade, such as balustrades, gable frames, windows, and door joinery or eaves soffits. Decorative, stylized forms of larch boards appear on the facades of houses, referring to those found on walls of barns and wooden houses.

Roofs covered with black metal tiles imitating shingles, stone foundations made of broken sandstone cut off the ground floors. Buildings fit into the context of the surroundings, and large glazing frames the most beautiful views.
