The owner had a finished project of the garden, in advanced stages of implementation. And only the house was missing. Something that at first seemed to be a ridiculous reversal of the course of things, once it was explained, became absolutely logical for us. He wanted to be able to enjoy the garden to its full extent after the completion of the construction and moving in. Plants need much more time to reach their target size than it takes to build even such a large house. You might plant big trees, after all, however, it is costly and not environmentally friendly.Save this picture!© Jakub CertowiczSave this picture!Situation planSave this picture!© Jakub CertowiczThe nature lover turned idle land into a beautiful green oasis with a lake and a smooth road to the place where the house was meant to be located, also assumed as an art gallery. The curves, which he enjoyed moving around on, inspired us. The ground floor of the house with the daytime part forms a continuation of these curves and fits in softly with the surroundings. This impression is complemented by the grey concrete used on the facades, which refers to the colour of the existing, stone road, being the starting point of the project. The rounded form clearly separates the driveway from the rest of the garden, providing the residents with intimacy and silence.Save this picture!© Jakub CertowiczSave this picture!© Jakub CertowiczThe ground floor is contrasted with the white minimalist body of the floor. Two different geometries clash and a softly cut atrium is a link between both floors. The garden surrounding the house from almost all sides flows into its interior through the semi-atrium at ground floor level. We had only a minimal influence on the garden, so we treated it as a natural element that cannot be chosen. Hence the name of the design.Save this picture!© Jakub CertowiczSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Jakub CertowiczAnother important aspect was the investor’s wish to expose his rich art collections. Therefore, on the ground floor and the first floor, we created additional, large-size spaces designed exclusively for art exhibitions. The host can organize vernissages for a large number of people. Moreover, we placed the most important functions of the house within close proximity to each other to make it user-friendly.Save this picture!© Jakub CertowiczSave this picture!© Jakub CertowiczThe large shutters on the south and west elevations are not only of formal importance – finished with the same plaster as the walls, but they also close up the building in a uniform shape and, above all, protect valuable art collections from harmful sunlight.Save this picture!© Jakub CertowiczThe aim to improve the quality of the surrounding space is non-standard and surprising. Due to the chaos of buildings and lack of vegetation, he regreens the vast areas of idle land surrounding him. He is creating gardens, and then the construction of houses of different sizes follows up. We support him in creating green urban planning and providing friendly, sustainable space to live in, with plenty of greenery for free, thus improving the quality of urban air.The entire housing estate, just like his house, use alternative sources of energy.Save this picture!© Jakub CertowiczProject gallerySee allShow lessKengo Kuma to Design Milan’s Biophilic Office of the FutureArchitecture NewsWorld’s First Space Hotel to Open in 2027Architecture News Share “COPY” Manufacturers: Diasen, Ideal Work, Sto, Baier, Berndorf, ERCO lighting, Hörmman, Leon, Sapa, XAL Lightning CopyAbout this officeKWK PromesOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLakaOn FacebookŁąkaPolandPublished on March 15, 2021Cite: “From the Garden House / KWK Promes” 15 Mar 2021.
