This family house — designed by Slovakian architecture studio Compass Architekti — is intended to maximize space on its small plot. Located on a small plot in Bratislava, the L-shaped house is centered around a courtyard garden and pool, intended to create an outdoor atrium for the house to open up to. One half of the house is almost entirely covered in glass to open into the garden, while the second half is enclosed behind a wooden wall.
The boundary between indoor and outdoor is blurred by a cantilevered concrete roof that extends into the garden. The concrete links the outdoor space to the house, with the same material running across the whole house. The building is designed with a minimalist aesthetic, with white walls and exposed wood complimenting the use of concrete. Take a look through the house in Slovakia in the gallery above.
