Simple family house

The homely abode designed by architects from JRKVC, is situated near Bratislava, Slovakia, and is functional, compact and not ostentatious.

The house was built on a wooden structure, and the outer walls are made of thermoinsulating panels.

Since the entire northern wall is made of 3-layered glass windows, the interior bathes in the sunlight. The architect Peter Jurkovic says that the glass wall was designed on the northern part of the house, because in that specific part of their country there are more sunny days. A greenhouse effect was thus avoided. To abide the principles of efficiency and functionality that served as basis for this project, the structure of the glass wall was divided into smaller panes, so that the windows didn't require special assembling techniques.

Abundant light and the whiteness of the walls visually enlarge the interior.
