Propeller House – 17 Jun 2013
Modern buildings are becoming more and more popular in Poland. Original architectural solutions are usually being used not only for projecting malls and office buildings, but also to design family houses. According to this, we can see more and more projects of extraordinary shaped houses. Great example of such attitude is a “propeller house”, designed by 81.WAW.PL – architectural studio from Warsaw.

Semi-Detached House Poland – 3 Jun 2013
Semi-detached houses are usually associated with two identical blocks connected with a wall. However, investment placed in Warsaw district Wilanów proofs that it is not always true. A semi-detached house is usually seen as a building made by “sticking” two identical houses to each other. The wall jointing two houses makes a borderline role between neighbors. What is more, buildings are designed as each other’s reflection with the same living area.

Autofamily House – 15 Feb 2013 + 11 Sep 2012
The only access to the plot is from the south, effecting in a conflict between the driveway and the garden to be designed. Therefore, the garden and the house is elevated to the level +1 while the entrance stays at the level 0. For the inhabitants comfort the driveway leads them to the garden, creating easy connection between two floors.

CO2-SAVER House
This very cost-effective green house blends – like a chameleon – with its surroundings. Colourful planks within the timber exterior facade of the house reflect the tones of the landscape. The window reveals, clad in fibre cement, frame images of the countryside. Analogical to the most creatures, the building is outside symmetrical, although the internal zones are arranged asymmetrically according to function.

OUTrial House, Ksíazenice

OUTrial House
A green clearing surrounded by forest was the only context for the proposed small house. Hence the idea to “carve out” a piece of the grass-covered site, move it up and treat it as the roofing to arrange all the required functions underneath. When the whole was ready, the client came up with another request, to create some space for a small recording studio and a conservatory. The latter was obtained by linking the ground floor with the grassy roof through an “incision” in the green plane and “bending” the incised fragment down, inside the building.

Garby house
The client’s wish was to have a high, two-level living room with large windows looking out to the south. The block of the house has been fitted to the existing slope in order to avoid too much capacity in its southern part – which resulted in a form soaking into the surrounding. The house is designed for a family of four.

Opole house
“An obvious conflict develops between the driveway and the garden. The idea arose to lower the driveway in order to separate it from the garden. This prompted another idea – of a driveway leading inside to the ground floor level, from underneath the building, which became possible thanks to the creation of an inner atrium with the driveway in it.”

Broken House, Katowice

Katowice house
The building is located on the outskirts of Katowice, near a forest, on land deteriorated by 4th category mining damage, where tectonic faults are a possibility. Hence the connotation of uplifted layers of soil, interwoven with one another, which was the inspiration for the form of the house.

Safe House Poland
The house is situated in a small village at the outskirts of Warsaw. The surroundings are dominated with usual „polish cubes” from the sixties and old wooden barns. The clients’ top priority was to gain the feeling of maximum security in their future house, which determined the building’s outlook and performance. The house took the form of a cuboid in which parts of the exterior walls are movable.

The house will be situated in Lower Silesia, in a post-german city, where the majority of buildings are steep roofed villas. Under ground there are thousands of kilometres of partly burried tunnels, which became the starting point of the design idea.

The project arose in untypical conditions: it was supposed to be built in two different places – near Pszczyna and in the outskirts of Berlin. As the second location was still to be chosen, the main goal became to design a house that fits every plot.

Stone Villa
Stone Villa is located in one of the most exclusive housing estates of Gdynia – Kamienna Góra. This part of town is under surveillance by historical preservation registry. This fact stimulated the design in the direction of an original form and well-thought urban solutions. The plot is located on the corner of Legionów and Krasickiego Street. The site is well exposed as a characteristic focal point in frontage of those streets.
