Single-Storey Bungalow for a Family of Five - The Lake House (1)

During the design process of the lake house I focused on finding the essence of a holiday home—a complement to family life. The house serves as a refuge for a family of five living in the capital—an opportunity to spend free time with family and friends in the countryside.

Single-storey bungalow is organized around a central living area with a fireplace. Secondary functions are shifted sideways, their volume wraps around the living room. Thanks to folding doors living room opens to the south terrace.

There is an asymmetrically positioned hipped roof. Over the south terrace it creates a valuable space protected against sun and rain. Inside the roof serves as an additional space to accommodate additional guests or a hideout for kids.

Outside the cabin is almost monochrome, just natural wood and white painted clading. No details. All attention is paid to the essential part of the house, which is inside. There we find the beauty, colors and textures.
