Urbanistic chaos and eclectic buildings of the quarter between Grzybowska and Twarda Streets and Jan Paweł II Alley conceal an unrealized potential – splendidly placed and heavily tree-covered space remains sheltered and inaccessible at the moment. However, the building of ‘Twórcza Twarda’ Cultural Centre along with the current surroundings and greenery are about to create a cozy, yet welcoming public space. The object is bound to be of significant importance for the local community, as it will define the future vibe of public space and the direction of further development in the context of the entire quarter.

The parcel is situated in a dense cluster of the single-family houses in the very center of Lubliniec city. The Charming grounds of an adjacent backwater (Droniowicki Dam) lie in direct neighborhood. The attractive localization with a beautiful view over the green valley of Lublinica river (a bit unkempt and neglected at the moment, but scheduled to be a big part of the revitalized boulevards) makes an ideal place to live. Such a pronounced localization provokes one to ponder on the architectonical character of the designed house. We have decided to search for an answer in the existing urban context. While determining an identity of the building, we have taken into an account both the size and character of the adjacent villas and the history of their architecture. Such a context and the historical connotations have inspired us, the authors, to create the Villa Urbana* – a house that will continue the historic typology of the urban residence.

The project of a small office is located in the formation of three conjoined steel halls. Their localization and architectural style are typical for the time of polish transformation. All three of them are parts of a much larger building complex, which is being constantly altered due to the development of local companies and rapidly changing market demands. The gentrification of the area continues. It is a characteristic process for small industrial areas functioning on the outskirts of Polish cities. Continue reading Dyrda Fikus

The refurbished apartment is located in the four-storey early 90’s residential building, in one of the Silesian purpose built pre-fabricated housing estates in Poland. The apartment appeared to be difficult matter to work with bearing in mind the existing constrains such as: prefabricated reinforced concrete elements (walls & slabs) limiting the possibility of spatial re-arrangement, low and overwhelming ceiling height, a large number of shafts, dark corridors and built-in storage units enclosed with timber cladding, all of which posed as a serious design challenge for an architect.

House . Lubliniec

The building is situated on a small 510m sq. plot, among a densely built-up residential area of detached houses, located in a close vicinity of the city center. The residential street where the proposed house is located is of eclectic character. However, the neighborhood reflects the local ‘tradition’, where a house together with a surrounding plot becomes a manifesto of the owner’s aesthetic tastes. Fortunately, the formal and stylistic chaos of individual buildings is in opposition to the spatial order of the street. This divergence influenced the design concept, which favored the spatial context over the formal one.
