Playground on the roof
House in Wrocław Krzyki
area: 315 m2
architect: Kuba Wozniczka
cooperation: Joanna Szeler, Marta Wróblewska
Another project of a house on a narrow plot of land. The project site is an oblong strip of land in a direction close to the east-west axis in a district of single-family houses with heterogeneous buildings. In the immediate vicinity, most of the cube houses from the 1960s and 1970s are 2.5 storey high.
The decision was made to open the living area and master bedroom to the garden by completely glazing the east-south façade since the south facade is to close to the border of the plot. At the other end of the house tere are utility rooms and garage on the ground floor and a children’s and guest`s room on the first floor with a western and northern exhibition. Due to the demand for very good sunlight in the children’s rooms, it was decided to raise the zone in order to obtain the possibility of additional lighting through the mezzanine from the east-south side.
At the same time, this treatment allowed for easy access to the roof terrace from the mezzanine roof of the children’s rooms and the guest room / office.
The form of the house is shaped in such a way as to efficiently and rationally organize the program designated by the clients, and at the same time so that the body fits into the immediate environment, in which 3 or 2.5 storey houses dominate, most of them with flat roofs.
We also designed interiors of the house. More pictures of the interior you can see here
