About Family House in Farkasrét

An Architectural Masterpiece with Cityscape Vistas

A couple and their two children call this house home. Exceptionally located, the plot reveals a hidden gem. Behind its modest street frontage, trees frame the property, which cascades downward, unveiling a breathtaking city panorama.

Design Motivated by Serene Views

The view, paired with a serene interior, became the design’s cornerstone. The layout is both intuitive and strategic: a 2-car garage, distinct zones for parents and children, a contemplative study, and a living room that celebrates the view. Additionally, the kitchen, boasting a terrace and barbecue, stands as the home’s heart.

Harmonizing With the Terrain

Given the land’s gradient, the garage nestles into the near-horizontal street frontage. Meanwhile, the living block strategically resides deeper within the plot, always facing the view. This design choice creates a duality—two separate yet seamlessly interconnected masses. The front wing houses a two-storey cube with storage and garage. In contrast, a three-storey living block, slightly recessed from the street, stands tall. Together, these structures cradle a protected atrium. Nestled behind these edifices, you’ll find a meticulously landscaped garden.

Navigating the Home’s Unique Layout

Beyond the garage and atrium, an enclosed corridor welcomes visitors at ground level. The living block might seem reserved when viewed from the street. However, once inside, it unfurls generously towards the view, spilling out onto the terrace and into the garden. Additionally, the barbecue—anchored by the kitchen’s dual-purpose counter—claims its spot here. Upstairs, basking in the morning sun, lies the parents’ sanctuary. Conversely, the lower level houses the children’s domain, which gracefully opens to a verdant garden and a private terrace.
