Built spaces work best when they are in conversation with their surroundings. Those conversations can either look like arguments, a-la-brutalist architecture, or more like a heart-to-heart. The Dom Corona, or ‘Crown House’ by Polish architectural firm 81.WAW.PL, falls into the later category.

Boasting a dramatic roofline and sharply cut windows, this concept, which won the first place prize in the World Architecture Community’s international competition in 2015 and placed as a finalist in Architizer’s A+ awards, reflects the jagged silhouettes of the not so distant mountaintops much in the same way the lake provides a mirror image of the home. Visitors drive up to the house across the edge of the lake, and pull right up to an almost hidden garage. Once inside the two story home, visitors can walk through the living room and out onto the Crown House’s main feature – the deck. A sharp triangle, this area juts out from the home and into the lake, making for a great place for entertaining guests or just taking time to enjoy the surroundings. From the lake, the home’s warm light looks as inviting as it’s lines are sharp.
