Housing Complex / medusagroup


first_imgPhotographs:  Miłosz JaksikText description provided by the architects. Two buildings of the complex were designed as gallery-type buildings placed parallelly to each other with wide boulevard between them. The third one is an apartment building. The authors’ ambition was to break pejorative reception of buildings of this type in Poland: infamous legacy of realizations in 70′. The humanized space of mini park between the buildings and galleries protected with glass against weather conditions are to create an attractive neighborhood space which usually does not exist in typical block of flats with staircase. Northern building Northern building is a five storey one with underground parking (shared with the apartment building). Communication with 3 galleries – a solid with staircase and elevator adheres on the east side. Building form is simple with galleries on the north side and a series of balconies on the south. The whole building was plastered in graphite colour while only the last storey has wooden siding. Additionally balconies are separated from each other with wooden openwork screens. Windows were designed in woodwork as porte fenetres. On the outside each window is closed by glass barrier. The galleries are screened by glass plates and their walls are covered with fibre-plasterboards in intensive yellow colour. Services functions are located on the ground level – these were glazed on the level’s circumference with big shop windows.
