Monolithic stone scrap: family house

The parts of the building which are above surface are divided by triangular prism similar to Rubik's snake, similarly with the original game the blocks have been "rotated". These irregular mass of blocks gives playfulness to the exterior and interior of the buildings space composition. The family house was designed by FBIS Architects.

The building was constructed as a terrace house after the Budapest city zoning plan. The building was designed with a green roof to be able to hide part of the building mass, so is not emphasized in relation to its size, which we considered to be city-specific. The parts of the building which are above surface are divided by triangular prism similar to Rubik's snake, similarly with the original game the blocks have been "rotated". These irregular mass of blocks gives playfulness to the exterior and interior of the buildings space composition.

Community functions of the building like the living room or a dining room are hidden in spaces reaching tall heights given by the buildings form. Because of the extreme shape of the building mass, we avoid to use any further architectural gesture, so beside of the openings, doors and windows other architectural elements do not appear on the facades. In contrast, the limestone covering homogeneously rounds the building, turning from the facades wall over the roof, with the same material. This gives the appearance that the blocks that makes the buildings mass seeims like shreds from huge monolithic blocks.
