Mikolai Adamus & Igor Brozyna explore a new design concept reflecting in a different and more convenient urban organization in their project for Housing estate in Polish town of Gdynia.
About the Project:
Typical building types of the neighborhood are single family-houses or small multi-family houses with private gardens. In this proposal, each plot is given different function and character, but they form a consistent whole. The plots are shaped so as the settlements do not block views from each other.
Each settlement is designed the same way. Level of housing is raised so as to create semiprivate courtyards and to improve views from the houses. Under the courtyard, each settlement has a different public function such as shop, swimming pool, library, etc. Above the courtyard, there are 3 levels of houses. At each level the amount of volume decreases to ensure proper illumination of flats. The roofs function as private gardens for the dwellings.
