Family Home, Kisdörgicse

Dörgicse on the Balaton Highlands boasts the ruins of a medieval church from the 12th century, and an arched baroque stone bridge from the 18th century a few hundred metres to the southwest that the locals call “the Roman bridge.”

The construction site has special characteristics, its top and bottom sides have direct links to the street. At the beginning of construction, some of the foundation walls of the farm building were still visible.

In accordance with regulations and following the settlement’s architectural style, the new building was placed at the site’s boundary. The linear layout faces west with an open/covered porch toward the courtyard. An important function of the porch is the shading of the western facade adjustable to the time of day and the seasons. The movable panels allow the facade to be open or closed.

On the northern, frontispiece side, there is a spacious open/covered terrace adjoining the interior with the living room, dining room and kitchen.

The linear layout ends with the bedrooms that also open directly to the porch with glass doors.
