The site is a plot of land adjacent to a road in the North, and gently descending towards the banks of Warta in the South. It is situated in a small village full of fences, small barns and sheds, most of them made of vertically arranged boards that turned grey a long time ago. The inspiration for the house originated precisely from those buildings and structures, the light that penetrates through them, their material and colour. It is an assembly of walls and fences providing protection from the nearby road which is necessary and yet troublesome. The house itself comprises three parts aligned parallel to the road. The first one is low, featuring elements of technical structure (boiler houses, garage, washing rooms), and a less frequently used guestroom. The second, high zone comprises circulation spaces. Due to its height it serves as a natural buffer protecting the interiors against road noise, also ensuring convenient access to all rooms of the building. The third zone is a living area, with day rooms downstairs and bedrooms upstairs, all arranged in such a way so as to ensure that each room has a view south over the Warta river meandering below. Sizeable outside shutters resembling gates protect the house against strong sunlight. The house will be complemented by an orchard.
