Hideout house is a mixture of Richard Alan Meier’s white architecture, Robert Konieczny’s autofamilly house and kaufman’s house widely known as fallingwater by Frank Loyd Wright.
Dobrzyca is a middle-sized lake found near Resko. On the one side of the lake, we can find a small village where tourists come visit during summer, and on the other side there is a forest near which a national park is placed, which has a perfect ecosystem for sundew flowers.
I designed this house especially for me, but it would also be a perfect place for everyone who sometimes want to escape from big city and feel the nature. Ground floor is made of completely transparent walls, and you can walk in to the living room by a platform hovering over water. Car is not only a symbol of transport, but it is also a vision of tomorrow and can be used as a good sculpture, that is why car is in the center of the house. First floor is a bit of a more private place, windows can only be found in bedroom, where other rooms use day light from skylight on the roof. Juxtaposition of transparent ground floor and negative first floor, create a distant view of white box hovering in the air.
