Hideg House by Béres Architects

View all 12 Photos

The Hideg House was built for the hot summers and cold winters of K?szeg, Hungary. Designed by Béres Architects, the private home is built into the roadside bluff, previously used as a quarry. Having the rock wall on one side of the structure helps to insulate the house. The division of the property into two cabins attached by a porch also regulates temperature, as the smaller areas are easier to heat and cool. On the exterior, the house has black and tan larch cladding, which contrasts with the white and beige interior. The varying neutral tones of the wood accent one another and echo the surrounding terrain, where highlights and shadows sharpen the rocks.
