‘House in Warsaw’ in TUKANA STREET, WARSAW, Poland by DAMIAN CYRYL KOTWICKI
April 22nd, 2011 by Sumit Singhal
The main idea of the project was to design an optimal land use compatible with the investor’s programme and the conditions of land building scheme. The plot is very small ca.600m2 with the entrance from the south,so with common parts we are opening to the south and west. Additionally from the South I withdraw elevation on the ground floor, creating a terrace with arcades thus it fell back farther from the street. I wanted to make this house very simple in plan and form, referring to the classic house. By using precious linings of brick with concrete, wood for warming the perception,titanium-zinc sheet as well as large glazed five-meter I created the impression of modern structure in a classic shape. For a breakdown of the length of the roof I used a one bay on each side what additionally ameliorate the block and create a more usable space in the attic.
Customers are a young couple with own business. The house was designed in accordance with the functional program of the investor. On the ground floor there is a large garage for two cars and an open living area to spend time during the day as well as kitchen, dinning room, a lounge and a lobby with a beautiful circular staircase located in the central part of the house. On the upper floor of localized extra lounge and two bedrooms with bathrooms for inhabitants and guests.
