MEEKO's house in zlotniki is an expression between the modernity and archetype of poland

the traditional architecture of single-family houses as well as meadows and arable fields famous for fertile soils have become a natural background for MEEKO’s ‘house in zlotniki’ project in poland. the functional and spatial layout of the rooms in the house is the result of design decisions relating to the advantages and drawbacks of the plot and joint arrangements with future residents.

the set layout of polish based practice MEEKO architects‘ residential project was accentuated by the diversity of the building’s solids. the rectangular shape on the ground floor is dedicated to daytime, recreational and technical functions. the second element is a block with a truncated gable roof placed on a rectangular prism like a separate element — a small house, intended for the bedrooms of the inhabitants.

the contrast between the solids is emphasized by the finishing materials. the ground floor is composed mainly in white plaster, from the south-western side a strip of large glazing is complemented with warm accents of cedar wood boards. the house on the first floor is covered with an elegant anthracite sheet joined to the seam standing on the roofs and walls, which creates a uniform structure of the body. the common denominator for the two solids is the window wood in anthracite, which is combined in horizontal strips to complement the form of the house.

a characteristic place of the house is a large, covered terrace on the ground floor. the terrace is located in a corner niche with an ideal exposure. it is an external extension of the dining room and living room, which can function regardless of weather conditions.
