Other People’s Homes: Jodlowa Glass House

20 Apr

(Via Pursuitist)

I am in love with everything about this house.  The floating dining room.  The orange and gray palette in the bedroom and living room.  The pool.  The bathtub (incidentally the same one in our room at Hotel Valley Ho).  What material do you think they used for the floors?  Enjoy the post and wipe up your drool, people.

Architects PCKO from London completed the original looking Jodlowa House in Krakow, developed in collaboration with MOFO Architects from Poland.

This magnificent glass house occupies a site of outstanding natural beauty on the outskirts of the city. The architecture approach was determined by the wish to protect and conserve the natural site, which is why the residence was built on pillars, giving the impression of a hovering home. Steel frames and floor to ceiling glass windows define the facade of the residence, allowing a large amount of natural light inside.

The interiors are spacious and display a lovely mix of materials, from steel to wood and stone. A covered pool is just one of the highlights of this Krakow home, characterized by elegance and originality. We welcome you to a virtual tour of this residence- housing a covered swimming pool, two bedrooms, 140sqm of living area and a five-story viewing tower- and we hope it will be a pleasant and inspiring one.

    I’d feel like I’d died and gone to heaven if I came home to that house every night. It’s gorgeous!

      For me, there is something about a home with clean surfaces that calms me. I think that’s why this process has me so unglued a lot of the time. I see no peace in my house. I just have to keep telling myself that I will!

    I’m thinking that floor is linoleum or painted cork. Where do you think they store their Christmas lights?

      I was thinking it might be terazzo, which I really love but is SO expensive!
