Unusual Looking Residence in Slovakia : Dom Zlomu

September 9, 2010 2


This unusual looking residence comes from Paulíny Hovorka Architekti and is situated in the small village of Kynceľová, close to the town  of Banská Bystrica, Slovakia. The house has a beautiful natural surrounding landscape and overlooks the Tatra mountains. You probably wonder how come this home has such a strange shape. At first this is what got our attention also and we checked into it. We found out that the client wanted a single storey construction and a maximum amount of natural daylight. But due to the unfriendly circumstances (“the unusual shape and eastward sloping of the site”), the architects came up with a unique plan: an “L”-shaped building with a large and impressive residential floor sustained by a smaller ground level. The first floor hosts all the living spaces- split into day and night, while the ground level houses the garage and the ancillary rooms. We particularly like the way the upper level is cantilevered towards the street and we believe this is one of the strong features of this home’s architecture.
