In today’s special post, I present a house that I designed a couple of years ago for my parents. The building won the Special Prize of the 2018 House of the Year Awards Hungary. 

The small family residence is located in the hilly woodlands of Western Hungary. The gable roofed house features a simple, rectangular floor plan. The kitchen, living and main bedroom are on the first floor, while the smaller guest rooms and a common work / play area are located on the second floor under the roof.

The harsh weather takes a toll on the buildings at this otherwise scenic location, so the building needed strong materials that can withstand the elements. The walls are built of thick, insulating clay blocks, the roofing is made of zinc sheet, and the deck floor and wall are covered with larch wood planks.

Casa Cinco Patios is a refurbishment project in Buenos Aires by Argentine architect Ana Rascovsky. During reconstruction, only the main structure of the old house had been kept, and a new Scandinavian style home was built at the site. Despite the very narrow plot, the house is surrounded by small terraces from three sides and also has a roof terrace, thus every room of the house have connection to a deck or garden. Wood floors and wall cladding, and Scandinavian furniture add to the Nordic feel of this home.
