The Little Eaves House
“This small house with an area of 170 square meters is inspired by a wooden hut I accidentally encountered during a bicycle trip, which somehow particularly captivated me and stayed in my memory, just like the characteristic arcaded houses of Lanckorona. The Little Eaves House breaks all conventions, rules and principles.”

Opole house
“An obvious conflict develops between the driveway and the garden. The idea arose to lower the driveway in order to separate it from the garden. This prompted another idea – of a driveway leading inside to the ground floor level, from underneath the building, which became possible thanks to the creation of an inner atrium with the driveway in it.”
