Single family house in Biały Bór, Poland by KWK PROMES
March 10th, 2011 by Sumit Singhal
Architect: KWK Promes arch. Robert Konieczny
The object was to be a gathering place for 8 related families. The key concept was to use a round plan, as a circle had been a symbol of gathering for ages. The initial layout was modified, as a semicircle enabled a better look-out towards the nearby lake. The common zone was hidden in a natural slope of the plot. The night zone was located on the upper level and devided into eight units in order to keep each family’s privacy. The form of the units was to correspond with those of the houses in the neighbourhood.
