It’s a lovely home and it’s located in a lovely area, in a calm district, surrounded by beautiful houses. It also benefits from beautiful views of Wawel and the mountains. The views actually played an important role in the design of the house. The client requested that the houses should be as high as possible in order to benefit as much as possible from the views of the mountains and the surrounding landscape. Another request was that the spatial relation between the floors would be preserved with openings as large as possible of the space.
