Following clients’ request, two Polish architects Przemek Kaczkowski and Ola Targonska have recently realised this striking single family house which is devoid of any stairs. Located in a residential area of Poland’s fourth largest city, Wroclaw, the 253-square-meters detached development consists of two distinctive space concepts: a street-facing, wood-clad ‘public’ part and a ‘private’ area which overlooks the garden and where all of house’s three bedrooms are located.

More about the project:

 

‘The “T”-shaped plan clearly reflects the distribution of uses within the house. The long wing visible from the street accommodates the common, “public” spaces of the house. The “public” wing features a slanted ceiling, adding to the feeling of openness and spaciousness. Behind the side wall of the living room, connected by a two-sided fireplace, is a “home cinema”, a space for watching films and listening to music, with acoustically clad walls and an incorporated screen. The kitchen is at the heart of the plan and is also a transition space between the living room and the wing of the house where bedrooms are located.’

‘The three bedrooms also open to the terrace and the garden with full-height sliding windows, though sneaking into the rooms from outside requires jumping above a narrow strip of water – a gesture towards granting more privacy to these spaces. The row of bedrooms features a bathroom at each end, and the corridor along this wing is lit from above by square skylights.’

‘The only part of the house without natural daylight, a strip between the garage and the private wing, houses a technical room and another toilet for guests.’
