Edge House, Contemporary Interpretation of Traditional Architecture Codes

Edge House is located in the center of Krakow in Poland. On slope where 8-meter limestone rock is cut dead-smooth, the parcels of the house, which has a view of the mountains surrounding the city, consist of 3 different levels: level of green terraces formed with the project, the floor level in which there is house floor and the level of the rest of the garden.
The villa has a 37 degree roof pitch and fringes in accordance with the design rules of the region. Despite the fact that the 3-floor house is 860 sqm, it still maintains the traditional forms. The design, which emphasizes the dramatic nature of topography, is a form of "overturned box". Thus the inclined walls are turning into the pitched roofs that the laws require.
The living space is on the ground floor for an impressive image. Two wings were designed to accommodate auxiliary functions to separate the building from the neighboring buildings on the top elevation, and the garage and swimming pool are in this area. In both wings, the walls are covered with wood and the green roof is considered to be harmonious with the nature.

Black claystone, copper plate and green architecture form a whole with white terraces. Every room opens to the garden.
