KUCZIA: Runner-Up of Architect of the Year Awards 2020. This minimalistic single family home literally breathes.
The flexible bioclimatic outer skin of the compact building reacts to current climatic conditions making the structure healthy and highly efficient.
The bi-folding glass doors merge inside and outside. That way, the residents can live in close touch with nature.
