Cube-2-box house in Mysłowice
Design: Zalewski Architecture Group
Redevelopment of a small single-family house from the 1970s located in Mysłowice, Poland. The main aim of the project was to increase the usable area of the house and improve building standards and still remain within Investors’ limited budget.
One of the principal objectives of the project was to reorganize the functional system of the house, both the interior and the surrounding space. The concept assumed location of the entrance directly from the street (the previous entrance to the house was located behind the building) that allowed to free an attractive recreational garden space.
Rebuilding of the existing “house cube” was designed as adding two additional smaller cubes, placed on the existing one. The lower cube contains an entrance hall, a porch and a living room area acting as extension of the daily zone while the upper cube contains a bedroom and a spacious bathroom. Placing the cubes on a previously prepared foundation pillars reinforces the impression of separation of volumes from the ground. The assumption was also to articulate compositional elements added within the building – bright white cubes contrast with retained in gray existing parts.
