Single Houses in Bory Tucholskie
MAKA.STUDIO has completed the Single Houses in Bory Tucholskie project. It is a modern complex of two single-family residence in Poland located on a lakeshore plot. Both of these homes feature a modern design focused on natural light, minimalism and views of the landscapes around them.
Complex of two single-family houses situated on the shoreline of the lake. A plot of land with a south entrance and steep slope was a design challenge.
The concept is to reverse the night and day zones. The night zone is on floor -1, while the day zone is available on floor 0. The building uses the natural terrain – it flows down with the surroundings. Thanks to this, the living area is higher and we get a greater panorama of the lake, and the two-storey blocks of buildings, partially hidden in the slope, do not disturb the scale of the town and fit into the existing area.
A steep slope of the plot separates the private part of the gardens from the street, creating a calm green zone overlooking the lake. By using natural, noble materials such as wood, stone or brick, the buildings blend in with the surroundings and complement it.
