This project presents a contemporary architectural approach to the theme of family weekend houses. Located at the bank of Danube river, this summer house is designed for contemporary young family with a full emphasis on the family gathering, relaxation and pleasant stay in the natural environment of the Danube. All architectural elements of the house are designed of all natural materials thus having no impact on the environment. By the use of materials, this house is complementary to surrounding nature. On the other hand, design of cubical form with flat wooden surfaces and “sharp” edges is contrasted to the soft natural surroundings.
Large window openings on the front façade enable constant view to the Danube River and introduce a light and nature into the object. Besides fixed wooden façade panels, the rest of the facade is a consisted of sliding wooden panels, that are enclosing dwelling while not in use.
