Sited on a steep slope, the Beskid Mountain House brings a modern family retreat to Poland's rural landscape. The two-story dwelling features a simple gabled form with a lower floor partially submerged into the hillside. Clad in black standing seam metal, the upper level has a minimalist appearance while the lower level is made from concrete block. The main structure is divided between gathering spaces and the private quarters by a glazed walkway. Contrasting the exterior, the living spaces showcase a bright, airy atmosphere with high ceilings, a clean palette, and generous amounts of natural light. To keep a connection with the outdoors, large windows frame in views of the surrounding mountains and the valley below.
