Cottage Near a Pond / Atelier 111 Architekti

Text description provided by the architects. Inspired by traditional fisherman?s cabins, we designed a small cabin on a bank of a pond, which is surrounded by a picturesque scenery. Its size is limited by the legislation. The maximum built-up area 50 m2 and the maximum height of 5 m  require a special ground-plan solution for a family holiday house.

The object consists of four small masses, three of which are connected and one separated, standing nearby. The central space is accessed by a minimal entrance through the kitchen, which also has a built-in component of a rather small attic space intended to be a sleeping space for children.

Floor Plan and Section

The kitchen offers a beautiful view of the water surface, as well as the bedroom, while the living space also opens up in the other direction, to the sunlit scenery of mature oaks. The individual separated object serves as a storage space with a covered porch suitable for drying fisherman?s nets or just silent contemplation surrounded by natural beauty.
