Located in a context of urban expansion of a residential area of Mirandela, this lot had a set of well-defined rules, regarding deployment, volumetric and clearances. Given this, the design quickly developed into a compact and linear volume, organized on a square base plant, 11×11, where are drawn two floors.

House in Lubliniec 2, Poland by Dyrda Fikus Architekci

 
June 2nd, 2015 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Dyrda Fikus Architekci

The building is situated on a small 510m sq. plot, among a densely built-up residential area of  detached houses.

The residential street where the proposed house is located is of eclectic character. 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, ie. it was more important to match to the order of the street (compact shape, emphasized building line, proportions of the edifice) than the form of the building itself. Regardless of it, the new house will always be just the next component of the existing stylistic chaos.
