This villa located in Warsaw’s Żoliborz district was a creative challenge for our studio. We had to combine our client’s out-of-the-box vision with the difficult task of designing a house located on a small plot considerably higher than street level.

Inside the representative, two-wing building a glazed atrium with a large tree provides plenty of daylight and connects the inside to the outside. This central point of the house has access to the living room as well as the light, floating stairs to the first floor.

The living room boasts a nine-meter glazing, which opens onto the large terrace and the west side of the garden.

To fit in with the sensibility of Żoliborz and Warsaw’s modernist architecture the façade was kept monochromatic and finished with black, hand-made Belgian brick and black titanium zinc sheet metal in an angled standing seam.
