Just outside the Polish capital of Warsaw, Marcin Tomaszewski of local architecture practice Reform has created a dwelling that appears to float amid its woodland setting. Planted between the trees, the ‘Izabelin House’ exterior design heavily features a mirrored facade which clads most of the lower level, giving the illusion that the upper half of the home is floating in mid air above the forest bed.

Formed of two horizontally configured volumes, the home’s lower storey is clad with reflective paneling. Consequently, these mirrored surfaces appear as an extension of the forest floor, with opaque areas stacked above. Large apertures present sweeping views of the property’s surroundings, while the design also comprises an area of sheltered decking at ground level.

The architect’s biggest challenge will be to preserve the existing trees which are currently located on the planned construction site. Furthermore, they will need to figure out a way to prevent birds from flying into the home’s highly reflective exterior surface.
