Mobius’ ‘Green Line’ Is A Modern Home Built Into The Land’s Natural Topography

From the time mankind first transitioned from a nomadic hunter-gatherer way of living to a permeant structure-dwelling agrarian existence, humans have been building shelters into local landscapes, from the massive underground network of Turkey’s Derinkuyu thousands of years ago, to the more-recently inhabited dug-out homes of Tunisia’s Djebel Dahar region. And continuing this age-old tradition is architect, Przemek Olczyk of Mobius Architekci with his “Green Line” residence.

Built into the natural rolling landscape of Northeast Poland’s Warmia region, the roughly 5,380 square-foot modern abode brilliantly incorporates the existing hillside into its design. The L-shaped glass and concrete-laden structure features a main living area that wraps around a central courtyard, shielded from the strong wind of a nearby lake by the hill and building. Jetting up from the grass-covered typography is a gabled roof complemented by wood lamella hanging down on the building’s rear-facing side — a nod to Poland’s traditional Warmian-Masurian cottages. The (sub)ground level features the living room, kitchen, and other living areas, while a grand stone staircase leads up to the sleeping quarters on the above floor.
