For many people, the concept of owning a “large home” means owning one that sprawls across a large plot of land and takes up a wide square footage. Some architects and designers, however, prefer to harness the unique opportunities that lie in building upwards instead! Houses that grow taller rather than spread wider are a unique chance to give a family more space in a different way and they’re also practically unparalleled when it comes to creating your own view of the surrounding area.
If you’re not quite sure what we mean, then you simply must check out these gorgeous photos of House with a View, a private home located in Mogilany, Poland. Completed in 2015, this tall, stunning home was designed by the innovative design and architectural group doomo. The home might look small because its base and the ground it covers aren’t extensive, but each room placed on top of another provides residents with yet another gorgeous space and a view that only improves as you climb.
Looking at the house from the street, you’ll undoubtedly notice two things immediately- lovely wooden shingles and windowed walls. The windows keep the whole place well lit at any level, while the shingles make the exterior both durable and beautiful.
Inside the home, the windows continue to act as a key feature, keeping each room lit, bright, and cheerful. In contrast, beautiful dark wood surfaces give the interior a gorgeous modern style that complements the slightly old fashioned way that structure looks on the outside. As if that wasn’t pleasing enough to look at, winding staircases lead you from level to level and room to room like you’re walking up the tower of a castle to get the best view of your kingdom!
