Mobius Architecture’s modern Edge House is ringed by a green-roofed terrace


Mobius Architecture’s Edge House is a spacious residence that puts a modern twist on traditional architecture in the mountains of Poland. The house has a traditional pitched roof required by local building code and is framed by a huge green-roofed terrace set on an 8-meter arm that protrudes beyond the hillside.

Mobius Architecture‘s Edge House by is carved 8 meters into a lime rock in the mountains near Krakow, Poland. The building features a pitched roof which, combined with the tilted orthogonal layout of the house, creates a quadric-prism form. This volume contains the living area and offers impressive views of the surrounding landscape.

The upper part of the plot is separated from the neighboring one using artificial banks instead of fences. Two additional wings house the garage and swimming pool. The home’s stone and timber composition, balconies, terraces and footbridges give it an organic aesthetic that makes it fit in with the landscape.
