Robert o projekcie

The beautiful site in Lower Silesia where the house is designed has one drawback: south-west access.

To avoid the obvious functional collision of the driveway and the garden, the driveway was ‘pushed’ into the ground. This prompted the idea of a driveway leading inside to the ground floor level, from underneath the building.

This became possible thanks to the creation of an inner atrium with the driveway in it.

As a result, the building opens up onto all sides with its terraces in an unrestricted manner, and the only way to get into the garden is through the atrium and the house.

This in turn has made it possible to obtain a new spatial model of the house – a reverse of an atrial building. Its structure results from various transformations of a cube.

The structure of the building it’s the effect of transformation of a “cube”, what gave all the walls, floors and ceilings including the internal aatrium and terraces.

This way of forming the structure of the building defined from the beginning the emerging architecture with the materials assigned to it. Concrete has been assigned to the transformed cube and timber to the additional elements.
