Construction has begun on KWK Promes’ lakeside hotel in Poland. Inspired by traditional mountain homes that found refuge from flooding on a neighboring hilltop, the building’s low profile burrows into the ground at its entrance while opening up to the Czorsztyn waters as topography descends. Similar to the regions typical layout, two massive gable roofs, which appear as two separate structures, are designed to house the elevated sleeping quarters.
