MIESZKANIE PLUS as a HOME
The concept of the competition is an attempt to create an atmosphere of a homely space, understood as unique, strengthening family ties and favouring neighbourly relations. A space associated with a bond and a sense of identification. A friendly and functional space, responding to the evolving needs of the family and the needs of different generations.
In the design, the family house idea has been developed in three dimensions:
a private space of the APARTMENT,
the neighbour space of the BUILDING,
and the shared space of the NEIGHBOURHOOD.
The leitmotif of design of the basic unit – the apartment - was to create the atmosphere of homeliness, space, a fulfilment of the dream about one's own home. Hence the proposed model, in which each apartment is a separate house:
on the ground floor - a house with a garden,
on the first floor - a two-storey house with a terrace.
The adopted model provides an attractive and unique space for each user while maintaining the rationality of the surface and the means used.
The starting point when designing the structure of the building was a universal model which could be used with different plots and with different apartment structures; a model which develops the notion of an apartment as a house and is at the same time economically rational.
The result is a system of residential units strung in series on communication routes, which have been shaped as meandering internal streets - attractive neighbourhood spaces - sometimes two levels, sometimes widened, illuminated through the roof and open to greenery.
The apartment modules can be freely configured in order to obtain an optimal solution, both in terms of geometry of the plot, and the desired structure of flats in a given area. The proposed layout minimizes vertical communication in the building.
In the design of outer structures of buildings, the subject of the intimacy of scale has been developed, which seems necessary to tame the space, build a sense of identification and uniqueness.
Possible sculpting of outer structures of buildings and varied configurations of repetitive elements, introduces unique compartments in the urban complex while maintaining a simple, repetitive structure.
In the design, the neighbourhood has been interpreted as a multifaceted integration neighbouring space. A comprehensive urban complex which is a buffer between the outside world and one’s home, as well as a spatial and intended extension of homely atmosphere.
The central place of the neighbourhood is a shared multifunctional space, satisfying a number of functions, addressed to different groups of residents, supplemented by a common room accessible to all residents.
The key motto while shaping shared spaces was gradation of the space - a gradual, user-friendly transition from public to private space.
