Konieczny’s Ark, a rather unusual house in Brenna, Poland.
Polish architect Robert Konieczny has designed this unique family home. The house is situated on a hillside overlooking the idyllic landscape of Brenna in southern Poland. The similarity to Noah’s Ark from the Genesis flood narrative is not to be overlooked. After extensive planning and countless analyzes, Robert Konieczny wanted to design a house that perfectly adapts to the sloping terrain. The architect opted for a concept based on a monovolume structure. A poured concrete shell creates a dexterous protection for the whole family. Just as in Noah’s Ark, a drawbridge was installed as entrance. The house is mainly divided into 2 large areas, the protected private area with concrete walls and a more open space with large windows from floor to ceiling.
The interior is characterized by a skillful combination of concrete, wood, glass and mirrors. A minimum of objects create a modern living experience. The images below were taken by Jokub Certowicz and Oslo Studio. You can get further information on this project on Robert Konieczny’s website.
