“Stolarnia” is the sixth design in the collection called “XII”, entirely designed by Karina Wiciak. “Stolarnia” (in Polish – Carpenter’s Shop) was inspired by the landscapes of the Bory Tucholskie National Park, near which the author lives and works.

Brunnenstrasse 9 in Berlin, Germany by Brandlhuber+ Emde, ERA, Schneider

Friday, May 31st, 2013

Article source: Brandlhuber+ Emde, ERA, Schneider

The house on Brunnenstrasse 9 is an extension of the foundations of a building “ruin” that was the result of a bad investment in the ’90s. The existing consisted of the cellar walls towards the neighboring house, the street and the courtyard, and a cellar ceiling, with exception of the parts of the lift and the drive-through; the steel reinforcement of the incomplete building protruded from the street level. The found structure was not only included but was even further developed in the new building. The angles of sun rays determine the volume of the attic floor, maximizing the light exposure of the building in the back.

Antivilla in Potsdam (Krampnitz), Germany by Brandlhuber

Friday, May 31st, 2013

Article source: Brandlhuber

While at the former – first prussian, then nazi and finally soviet – barracks in Krampnitz nearby Potsdam war films such as „Enemy At The Gates“ or „Inglourious Basterds“ were shoot, they also were the setting of another drama that newspapers simply called „Krampnitz Affair“. The State of Brandenburg tried to cancel the sale of the Krampnitz Barracks when discussions about the too low sale’s amount started. A noisy public arguement between politicians and the investors who intended a large scale housing project followed and is without a decision so far.

Estonian Methodist Church in Tallinn, Estonia by AB Künnapu & Padrik

Friday, May 31st, 2013

Article source: AB Künnapu & Padrik

The two-storey building is sculptural, slightly resembling a ship, with a subtle scale. There is a small piazza and an awning in front of the entrance. The crystal-shaped church hall seats 720, and a slender wedge-like spire emerges from it. The curved “tail” contains a common room, theological seminary classes, library, students´ sleeping quarters, offices etc. It is a powerful solution to the rear part of the building.

Private Residence in Bialystok, Poland by Cubic Projekt

Friday, May 31st, 2013

Article source: Cubic Projekt

Could you please introduce yourself briefly?

I’ve been an architect for twelve years, specializing in the matter of interiors, architecture and partly design.

What inspires your work? What are the main assumptions of your projects, what makes them stand out?

The inspiration comes from international projects and my own travels. Also, the publications of the best architects, let’s say, strongly motivate to deeper, more difficult actions and hard work on each project. They stimulate very well to gain an even better effect from the subject. The only difficulty that occurs, a professional difficulty, is the investor’s outlook on the quality of the project and the future realization. This means his expectations are much too low compared to what the architect can present or suggest. My philosophy is to put as many of my ideas as possible into practice.

  • Architects: TomaszTubisz – Cubic Projekt 
  • Project: development and modernization of a detached house in Bialystok
  • Location: Bialystok, Poland
  • Photography: Cubic Projekt
  • Architect In Charge: Tomasz Tubisz
  • Year: 2006
  • Fireplace: Fire Line Automatic, Planika

So do your projects have any characteristic features, a certain dominating style?

I think my projects do not have any visible strong individual features of an architect that you’re asking about. However, I am constantly developing and I try to lead that development in the direction that would make those characteristic features easily noticeable. I am also keen on modernism and avant-garde, which I try to put into practice.

It is partly a joined system, because you do not easily find such investors, who know what they want and who like certain style. That is why every work is preceded by a conversation, an interview regarding the needs and feelings of the investor. For me the most important thing is to implement the project without any changes and corrections made by the investor. Unfortunately, in Poland it often happens that the investor corrects it either for financial reasons, or because of bad advice. And this is the worst evil, which destroys the project.

Image courtesy Cubic Projekt

How would you briefly describe the project held in Bialystok?

The project in Bialystok…it is a timeless house, the one I like. And the space we have succeeded in obtaining, it’s a superb project for everyone. The house extracts the whole greenness from the surroundings, the parcel,even from the deeper surrounding, which is the forest around it, the park. The investors are content, because their needs were met, all the expected functions were complied, for me the house isat 100% executed.

Have there been any serious technical problems during the project? How long did it take? Did you manage to finish it on time or have the works extended?

Every project takes longer than you presume. That precise project lasted almost exactly 2 years. Generally there were no problems, for me it was a perfect project. The largest difficulties have occurred during the demolition and the implementation of construction changes, because the building was expanded from 300m to 600m, from a simple block to a much bigger and difficult space. But the effect was really satisfying so thatsuccess pleased everyone. But there were no problems.

In an interview for one of the interior magazines you have mentioned that a good cooperation is half of the success in a project. Was it hard to convince the client to the implementation of a bio fireplace? Did the clienthave a different view and wanted to use a different product?

As I have mentioned before, such ideas of the investor ruin the project the most. However, in that case the investor gave me his full trust and generally I presented him the idea of a 3m long fireplace in the living room, as such product fitted into the whole space, which was created there. At that time it was hard to find such product. Fortunately, fate caused me to come across your company, and my bosses have accepted my idea and your ability of creating such product. And there it was, a three metres long, linear fireplace, so it was another success in that matter.

Image courtesy Cubic Projekt

That was my next question, about the key element while choosing the product. You could say that it was not design, but the technical capabilities have preponderated?

Well…At first there was the design and your company has coped with it. What I can say is that the casing was made by another company, you have made the inside, so basically the technology and the trough with fire, it was all joined together successfully. So for that time, as far as I remember, it was a huge challenge for me and for you. And we achieved. Today it is much easier.

Image courtesy Cubic Projekt

So in your opinion the whole project ended up as a success and the client was fully satisfied as well?

Yes, it was a 100% success, the investors underline it all the time, whenever we meet. So I hope there will be more projects and investors of that kind.

Image courtesy Cubic Projekt

As an experienced architect, would you recommend that that particular bio fireplace, the Fire Line Automatic, to other professionals, architects, designers?

Yes, this product is prepared perfectly for architects and designers. The technology doesn’t create much barriers or limitations. I recommend it.

Do you have a favourite project in your career, your own or perhaps of some other author, which you particularly admire?

I really like the projects of Robert Konieczny, and his atrium house is exactly what I call a 100% project, except the interiors, which I would, let’s say, bring up for discussion, correction. As for the interiors themselves, of course I do like other projects of several architects, but if we are referring to fireplaces and interiors in particular, there are a lot of such projects and such list could be endless.However, I always try to judge each project in terms of its quality and divide the projects considering whether I could live in that certain space, or only be there, exist just to admire it.

Image courtesy Cubic Projekt

In fact, the time itself will judge if the interior, the house, the architecture will last, whether it will be timeless or not. So it is with the classics. In my projects I try to state that something,which has lasted about 20-30 years since the day of its design, is timeless. I suppose that your products will also be corrected one day, but I have the impression that most of them are ideally designed and manufactured by your company.

I expect that Planika will be developing its ideas, its products, because I reckon that now is the time when, in case of fire, many things can be changed. For example, verticalfire. But that’sanothersubject.
