Measured as the crow flies, just four kilometres separates the centre of Krakow from a former quarry that has now become an exclusive residential area. A highlight of this area is the Edge House, which boasts 850 square metres of living space and unique architecture tailored to the location. The extraordinary plot, which is cut through by an eight-metre quarry edge, was a challenging starting point for the architects working on the building. When building so close to an edge, building regulations stipulate that the roof must be of gabled design, which went against the wishes of the clients. By positioning the building on the rocky edge of the quarry and with the help of a steep façade, the building was adapted to suit the contours of the rock; with this design, the gabled roof was the perfect finishing touch for the architectural vision.
