Designed by UK-based architects PCKO in co-operation with MOFO Architects of Krakow, Poland, Jodlowa House is a modern glass home located on a picturesque plot just outside of Krakow’s city limits. The single-storey home’s fully glazed facade sits in a contemporary steel frame, which floats above the ground (so not only does this modern home showcase nature, but it’s also designed to minimize its environmental footprint). Built right into the design, a mature tree adds yet another level of nature to the design. The windows too help to bring the outdoors in, flooding interiors with natural light. Behind these wide expanses of glass, an indoor swimming pool, two main bedrooms and a sprawling 140m2 living area provide unobstructed views of nature. But the best seat in the house for enjoying these vistas is from the five-storey tower. The tower’s lower levels house guest accommodations, and are topped by a study that frames views of the Tatra Mountains on the distant horizon. PCKO Architects and MOFO Architects.
