A young Budapest-based architect couple Polla Bauer and András Ónodi have recently completed their first joint architectural project, this modern detached house located in a rural Hungarian town. Intercepted into the slope, the single family development boasts a two-storey elevation towards the street, which becomes one-storey at the back due to the steep topography of the site.

More about the project:

 

‘The generous geometrical design is combined with a similarly elegant way of choosing the materials. The dark sheet metal cover on the roof and the large format panels cladding the facade provide for a homogeneous impression. These appear as a frame along the roof line and running downwards along the shorter facade. This strong highlighting is in stark contrast to the white plaster surfaces. The rigorous tectonics is tamed by the wooden padding.’

‘The arrangement of the ground plan is bipolar. The hall and corridor at the entrance provide for a line of demarcation between the living space of parents and the two teenage children. The kitchen, dining room and living room are neutral, common area serving for the core of the family home as one contiguous space. Interiors are moderate and rational, that correspond obviously to the compact design of the exterior.’

‘The interior design reflects also the alternation of grey and white surfaces, causing the perception of a sort of sterile atmosphere. However monochromacy is sometimes broken by the warmth of citron yellow furniture, cladding or paintings. Consistent and deliberate use of colours, extreme details and carefully selected materials result in a coherent and minimalistic composite whole that gives the house uniqueness.’
