House on the Horizon near Poznan is a typical family house that has \”something more\” than a typical project. In a small surface of the building with double garage, designed T-shaped, there is comfortable space for a family of three or four. Living area (135 m2) consists of kitchen, dining room, living room, two bedrooms, a guest room (optional third bedroom), toilet, bathroom . A small area is organized very comfortably – day and night zones do not interfere with each other, and individual rooms with large glass panels give a sense of space and contact with garden.
Designed building is set in a rural landscape where a lot of buildings are the houses with flat roofs. Therefore its architecture is not pretentious against rural buildings, but has decidedly modern character. Simple horizontal architecture maintained in an economical form, with clearly underlined the entrance zone is the answer of architects from Wroclaw to the expectations of the investor.
Lightness of the building gives the white color of the plaster on the facade, broken warmth of wood joinery and façade cladding from the front and from the side of the terrace. Typical building with modern light form, that has something simple, traditional, but also a touch of elegance and good style.
