Description by Philippitzis & Associates:
Claims of functionalism, geometrical clarity and simplicity advise the final form, while the organisation of spaces predisposes for a way of life “simple and necessary”, that longs for the contact with the natural environment.
The load bearing concrete structure, of which the construction from pillars on a level with the ground and above, took place by building the stonemasonry, like a “kernel”. This presupposes an in detail design and particular supervision on the electromechanical networks in the stage of manufacture.
Demolition stones, “Syki’s” Pelion stones with river shingles weave the web of stonemasonry which are joint-filled with a special plaster (kourasanit) with the addition of 5 mm tessera.
In the main volume of the building that is totally stone, is organised the space of entry with the living room and the kitchen with the space of food in the depth, as well as a guesthouse. Exempted from internal partitions, in the space of the living room dominates a sense of uplifting under the obvious roof with stone triple gripida. The internal wooden staircase manufactured from trainwood placed in the exterior stone wall leads to the open attic, where is found the bedroom with the bath.
In the smaller volume the little house there is a guesthouse and a laboratory, bath and the essential auxiliary spaces. The roofs were manufactured by local and “Agioritiki” chestnut tree with double insulation and covering with Pelion plates.

Descriprion by Mood Works:
This home is located in the old part of Konstancin-Jeziorna – health resort, filled with residences. The owners of this house were lookig for the place near the capital of Warsaw, that will be silent and peacful, connected with nature and full of harmony.
The most important part, when speaking of the project, is designing this residency in the way, that reminds of the french, holistic approach to designing. The interior and the garden are as much important, there is no boundaries between the architecture and directly connected environment. The interior is coherent, designed in a classical approach, with the modern twist.
