Defined by a powerful contrast and geometry, this bold minimalist design was conceived by polish architectural practice of 81.waw.pl and represents yet another reinterpretation of the traditional sloped roof.
Normally we are inclined to believe that the design that fit best in a natural landscape are traditional ones that use organic materials and blend in without damaging the image. And it is true for most cases but there are some modern, contemporary designs like the Crown House that take advantage of the natural landscape, understand it and enhance its beauty not by resembling it but through a bold and powerful image. And even if this sounds rather intrusive, in this case at least, it’s not. This bold minimalist design takes after surrounding mountain peaks in terms of form but stands out because of the contrast created through colours and overall simple and clear design. The artist behind the renderings is Michal Nowak. But perhaps this dream house’s most amazing feature is the still, mirror like lake upon which it is sitting. In the renders it provides a very beautiful reflection but in reality it would be an irreplaceable touch to any home. A simple terrace, comfortable chairs, perfect landscape and a cup of coffee-the perfect recipe for a wonderful home. But it’s not just the terrace that takes advantage of the landscape; generous openings were placed all around the house to take advantage of the enclosing environment. The Crown House is linked to the shore by an elegant white platform that provides access to the garage, decorated with two sculptural tree trunks. Although this a just a concept and the real thing is hard to grasp at the moment, there is no reason why it might not become real. The scenery is real and so is the bold minimalist design. Thoughts?
