THE SITE IS LOCATED in Bratislava, Zรกhorskรก Bystrica, oriented to north-east, bordered from the east and the west by family- house area,from the south by blocks and from the north by the meadows.The site entry is possible from all cardinals.
PICKING OUT THESE particular volumes is subjected to cardinals ,possible views,neighbourhood realtions and mainly to need of differentiating and separating different functional units and places. Current solution provides an intimate atrium for accomodated patients, but also a playground for daily visitors. There are available two entries, where except the main entrance oriented to north-east is also the separate entrance for accomodated patients/community/.It is the one-storey building with direct relation to exterior, which is fluently passing on the facade.
entrance for communities
entrance for supplies
THE EXPRESSIVE FORM of the building i tried to balance with a simple white facade alternating the glazed surfaces of circular cuttings. The whole facade, except the cuttings,is cladded by birch limbs, which are supposed to unify and create the separate surfaces of different materials.
THE WOODEN CLADDING is represented by subtle trunks,which arranges more natural and playful expression and at the same time alsoprovides intimacy behind these glazed walls.The green rooftop is,also underlining the character of building.
