Recently completed ‘Miedzyborska 11’ housing estate, designed by Grupa 5 Architekci is located in Warsaw’s Praga district and comprises of 154 dwellings of medium and high standard. The main goal set by the designers was to maintain a green character of the place. It was accomplished by splitting development into singular buildings and by raising garage slab above the street level to hide all car circulation areas. „Green podium” hid traffic under the ground and provided an additional open recreation space on top.
Architecture was shaped by opening chosen views to the surrounding and maintaining all buildings sunlight access requirements, which created characteristic dynamic slant geometry.
Additional advantages of the development are: centrally located green area with a playground, fully equipped fitness and spa centre for residents, pram and bicycle storage, which will help residents in storing safely sport equipment and pushchairs.
