Completion: 2016

Location: Vojka nad Dunajom, Slovakia

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.
