A Large Green Roof Covers This Riverside Home

This modern home has been designed to subtly integrate into the natural shape of the land, and allows for a usable green roof.

Architect Pawel Naduk of 77STUDIO in Warsaw, Poland, has designed a modern house with a green roof that’s located on the bank of the Vistula River.

From certain vantage points, the home only looks like it has one level.

However, the opposite side of the house is nestled into the landscape, with a lower floor having direct access to the yard.

Inside, floor-to-ceiling windows like in the living room, provide an unobstructed view of the river.

Opposite the floor-to-ceiling windows are sliding glass doors that open to a partially covered patio, where a table and chairs make for an outdoor dining experience. At night string lights help to create an inviting atmosphere, while stairs lead to the roof.

The primary bedroom, which is also located on this level of the home, is accessed via a door in the living room, with the wall of windows continuing through to the bedroom. In the bedroom, there’s a freestanding bathtub positioned to take advantage of the views.
