Nature loves it: modern glass house near Krakow, Poland

modern glass home krakow architecture

PCKO Architects in co-operation with MOFO Architects show us how to build beautiful homes with  a minimum footprint and a maximum enjoyment on nature. The Jodlowa House near Krakow shines with its fully glazed facade, floating above the ground thanks to its steel frame. The modern glass house tempts with an indoor swimming pool, 2 bedrooms and 140 sq.m. living area. However, the most tempting part is the five-storey tower, consisting of guest rooms on the lower levels and a study on the top that offers extensive views on the surrounding nature. And talking about nature – a mature tree on the plot is preserved by integrating it into the house thanks to openings in the ceiling and the floor. Wonderful idea, isn’t it?

    I would feel really uncomfortable in a house like this. I like walls and windows. They provide a better balance between light and shadow and they make me feel safer too.

    On a side note, that piano under the sunlight will last not long.

    [...] People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones — they should throw parties. The Jodlowa House near Krakow was a joint project by teams at PCKO Architects and MOFO Architects. Together the firms built a fully glazed glass house with a footprint so minimal, it floats above its green lot. The steel-framed house has two bedrooms, an indoor swimming pool and a five-story guest tower, complete with a top-floor study with sweeping views of the Polish countryside. Ceiling and floor openings help the house hug and preserve a mature tree, which helps honor the home’s main houseguest: Mother Nature. [via homedesignfind] [...]

    Is there a betting pool on how many birds fly into it per year?
