Residential Architecture: Summer House at Lake Balaton by munkacsoport.net: “..the essence of peace was created through its U-shaped footprint, effectively opening the public spaces to an exterior atrium in the back garden facing southwest; the other side closes itself off from neighboring houses. the private living spaces look towards the front of the residence, opening to a large outdoor terrace. the site influenced much of the building’s characteristics, lending to its varied pitched roofs in compliance with local building codes, and suggesting a height difference from one end of the house to the other, adjusting itself to the adjacent dwellings. due to the irregularities in plan and elevation, the architects homogenized the project through the use of white plaster on the facades and white metal sheets for the roof elements, creating a unified vernacular..”  Interesting  form and interior volumes, nice wood detailing, extensive glazing with some interesting fenestration, abundant natural light, terrace, privacy..
