munkacsoport.net: summer house on pillars

nestled within a grove of fir trees, the ‘summer house on pillars’ by munkacsoport.net is elevated on pilotis for panoramic views overlooking lake balaton in balatonakarattya, hungary. supported with columns proportioned after the trunks of the encompassing trees, a lifted volume of interior spaces for meditation passes through the canopies. the structural elements form an outdoor terrace at ground level, while their placement was determined by the existing vegetation. affected by the inherent building regulations for pitched roofs along the northern half of the lake, the site’s position on the border of the southern area enabled the approval of its flat roof plane.

communal rooms are positioned on the first floor along with the private bedrooms which are partially embedded into the hill for added privacy. at the heart, a chimney is positioned to act as an outdoor grill and indoor fireplace.
