Article source: BudCud 

“We are home at last. Don’t stop, don’t wait. What can you do? Help!” Those words, proclaimed by famous actors and other participants of public life, could be heard from TV sets in the time of the Tadeusz Mazowiecki government. This phrase served as the motto for the 8th edition of the annual Warsaw Under Construction festival organized by the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw and the Museum of Warsaw with guest curators from Architecture Institute from Cracow.

Article source: Ingarden & Ewý Architects

Besides the three main halls with 1915, 600, and 300 seats, the shell holds a multifunctional conference space of 550m2.

Hiding a multi-story foyer open to a panorama of Kraków, the Vistula embankment façade is spectacularly transparent. The outer shell combines glass, ceramics, and aluminium, with colours ceramic tiles reflecting those of the interior: red of the Auditorium Hall, graphite of Theatre Hall, white of the foyer, and the silvery aluminum used for the roof.

The concrete cube house in Koziegłowy, Poland by TEŻ ARCHITEKCI

Wednesday, January 25th, 2017

Article source: TEŻ ARCHITEKCI

The house was built in the seventies of the XX century in Koziegłowy (Poland) as a typical representation of the so called “modernistic cube”. The main characteristic of this kind of buildings was the almost square basis and 2 floors (one being high ground floor with basement underneath). The owners wanted to remodel the building with the emphasis on raw materials, natural light and harmony between the inside and the outside of the house. The aim was to create more functional space yet with less storage room.

Article source: KWK Promes

The highest value of the plot is a wonderful view stretching out. The idea was for the house to become its framework that crops it. The most appropriate building turned out to be a fully open on mountain landscape one-storey building, which gives the same view to all of the interiors.

House With a View in Mogilany, Poland by doomo

Saturday, November 26th, 2016

Article source: doomo 

Timber elevation and roof (boards and shingle) are perfectly common to a local Polish nearmountain building tradition, which is exacly where the house is built. These natural materials will change during the time, they’ll “live” together with the seasons and wheather. Because of it with every passing month and year the building will blend more and more into the landscape.

House W in Warsaw, Poland by STOPROCENT Architekci s.c

Thursday, November 17th, 2016

Article source: STOPROCENT Architekci s.c

The building was designed on a large and picturesque plot in the suburb of Warsaw. It is surrounded by a pine wood and a couple of summer houses sprinkled in close vicinity and further. The natural shape of the terrain is an uphill slope towards the south and the north, forming a small hill, flattened on the top. It was the aim of the architects to connect the new building to the natural context of the plot with a calm, harmonious design. Since the programme was extensive, a decision was taken to split the house up into a couple of smaller buildings, thus avoiding a massive form that would dominate over the plot.
