Pieniny House – Small Cottage by HOLA Project Group

\Pieniny House - Small Cottage

Pieniny House is a vacation home designed by Polish studio HOLA Project Group. This small cottage is located on the shore of an artificial Czorsztyn lake in southern Poland.

The plot is situated on a slope overlooking the lake and two medieval castles. The interior of the house and its location on the site were matched to the view. Wall of the house from the lake is fully glazed. Two sliding windows allow for the opening half of the wall and links the interior to the terrace. The shape of the house, its dark color and used materials refer to the traditional local pastoral houses. One hundred meters from the house is a museum with buildings from the nineteenth century which have been moved from the bottom of a lake when it was created. The house refers to the tradition but has a modern form, and technical solutions.

Striking Desert House in Tucson, Arizona / Kevin B. Howard Architects

We were very fortunate to work with a couple who, devoted to the ideals of minimalism’s stark allure, asked us to design a house in the foothills of Tucson, Arizona, located in the profoundly diverse Sonoran Desert. The owners’ refined sense of contrast required a “modern, minimal home: a pristine box that seemed to have landed in the desert.”
