Edge House by Mobius Architects: cutting edge contemporary architecture
Poland-based Mobius Architects have created something modern, beautifully unusual and definitely stunning. The Edge House near Cracow is supposed to be built on an excavated niche on a limestone hillside – a terrain that certainly poses many challenges, but also gives birth to some truly exceptional ideas.
Pressed by local building codes which disallow roofs with slopes less that 30 degrees, Mobius had no choice but to find a way to obey these regulations. That’s how the concept for the roof came alive. Looking at the sheer plane pierced by windows and the protruding white terrace, we have no doubt this is the best solution for this peculiar plot.
