Agricultural Cabin


Gödöllő, Hungary




Permission Phase

The plot of this design is on a beautiful hill in Gödöllő from where you have a grand panorama of the city. To also respect the views on the hill from below, the majority of the building is sunken with a mere timber cabin sticking out. By doing this a very low energy building is conceived that makes most of the static temperature of the earth. By opening up the south facing front completely and having a window next to the staircase through which light seeps through, the inside will receive ample daylight. A fixed sunshading device, that takes into account the high position of the sun will protect against the summer sun, while allowing the late autumn and winter sun to shine through. The relationship with the garden is of particular importance, as the vegetables and fruits grown there will be processed in the building.
