OBSERVATORY Bachelor’s degree


~ student works ~

he idea of the project brings observers one step closer to the processes of existence, life and death. In section the building is a function describing life processes. Plan is a circle, a geometric figure which is a symbolic meaning of infinity. After linking both of this planar geometries and making from them spatial form, we get the building structure. The exhibition inside pavilion shows a full period of annual plants. From the seeds to the degradation and death which suports the start of a new cycle. Responsibility: everything.

PANOPTIKUM Academic project


he multifamily building is a definition of diversity. The main stimulus which influenced design process was adjacent environment. The site was located between two quaint buildings erected at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. Tennant’s buildings included a collection of miscellaneous windows. The idea of the building assumes that elevation is a reflection of the dwellers. How does it work? 1. Catalogue. Shapes, sizes of the windows from adjacent buildings are converted into contemporary models. 2. Decision. With an advice of an architect, residents decide where implement windows, which size and shape use. 3 Mozaic. The elevation is a reflection of the dweller’s diversity. Each of the inhabitants is able to personalise his flat. Wooden sub construction allows modifying system and location of the windows in the future. Team: individual work. Responsibility: everything.

ENDLESS International student competition


~ student works ~

he task of “120 Hours” 2016 edition was to design “a house without function”. Each of us has an intimate depiction of our own house. Our proposal is a sum of these subjective, personal emotions. It is a collage created from a of plethora thoughts, dreams, images, sounds and tangible stimulus. Our proposition is an abstract space which would allow you to sneak between a myriad of private ideas of the House. Team: Łukasz Kaczmarek, Ewa Plucińska, Michał Przychodzeń.

HOUSE FOR A BLIND PERSON International student competition


~ student works ~

orego the visual logic. Follow your senses. Flollow your instincts. Play like a child. You cannot look at this house, you cannot understand it. You have to feel it. Take a deep breath, sit down comfortably and close your eyes. Travel to the world of your imagination. The infinite connections between your brain synapses can offer you more than the visual perception of the world you have known as yet. The sense of space you can create within your mind can be far more complex than those your eyes can see. Can you trust your visual perception? How can you be sure that the visual image of an object is its only essence? You can understand this house only relying on your intuition. Follow your inner child.

ZAWALNA Professional competition


he main goal of the Zawalna competition was to design a public space adjacent to the Odra river. Our strategy was to create one coherent spatial sign; single element guiding and attracting pedestrians to space.Along “The Wall” we designed pavilions with selected functions.These activities came from the competition brieff, formed on public participation.”The Wall” changes.The system is created with series of different barriers; openwork to open to the views on the riverbanks or solid to eliminate street noises Team: Janusz Bułat, Michał Przychodzeń, Sara Vandewalle, Sara Zapotoczna.

VIZELA Aacademic project


~ student works ~

he site dedicated to our atelier was an abandoned factory in Portugal town,Vizela. Our first step was to clean up a factory with Vizela citizens as part of a participation process to attract the attention of the city inhabitants.The further process assumed design intervention.The method of each intervention has been based on simple and low-costs solutions as cleaning, painting and preserving the most valuablecharacteristics of the factory. Cleaning process has been divided into three levels of maintenance. Zero: no cleaning. First: removing old plaster, debris and moss. Second: painting white. Intervention was arranged to emphasise the contrast between cleaned and untouched areas. By removing the debris an accessible space opened for citizens. was created. Project was based on the participation with people of Vizela. This part of work was solely the beginning. It was a spark which will lead to the continuation of reclaiming factory to the city. Effects of our work has been publicated in local press. Special thanks for support to Vizela Town hall and Radio Vizela. . Team: Eva Caridade, Michal Przychodzen, Sara Venda. Responsibility: whole project.

EVOLO International student competition


~ student works ~

he state of emergency is our answer to evolo 2015 competition. Our intention was to present manifesto than a real proposition on how to solve the crisis in the East. Russian aggression toward Ukraine is an issue commonly avoided by the European Union. Conflict is based on posession of teritory, money and of course power. This is a very complex situation but one thing is obvious - common people suffer the most. Our project shows what may happen to Ukraine if we do not react to the current situation. We have created a screenplay showing this country taken part by part. People running away from their homes taken by the enemy, looking for a shelter in the last remaining place of their land - the skyscraper which is built by the refugees- which we show in the project. Each floor is big enough to fit in the whole heritage that all the refugees will take with them - churches, monuments, houses, so that at the end of the war the whole Ukraine and its legacy will be preserved in one huge skyscraper. The aim of our work was to attract international attention to the problem of the conflict which seems to be ignored by world public eye. Team: Marta Mochniak, Michał Przychodzeń, Patryk Ślusarski, Sara Zapotoczna. Responsibility: conception, plan, collage scheme, section visualization.

BUILDER COMPETITION Nationwide student competiition


~ student works ~

he aim of the builder competition was to design dream house dedicated to the young generation. Together with Tola, We decided to design flexible space with crane used to rearrange functions closed in the boxes. This approach created a space which is easy to modify and personalise. Boxes can be rearranged or change for different models. The position of function can be changed with smartphone application or voice command. We assumed that affordable spot for the house is a parking lot near the city centre. Team: Antonina Dorobisz, Michał Przychodzeń. Responsibility: Whole project.

SQUARE IN LEGNICA Professional competition


~ professional works ~

he main aim of the competition was to preserve the city square in Legnica. A key task was to redesign existing square with regard for a new underground parking lot. Our decision was to create a cubic volume enclosing the square together with a new town hall building and bus stop pavilion. Team: Tomasz Głowacki, Dominik Angerman, Marcin Mierzwa, Jakub Piszczek, Michał Przychodzeń, Katarzyna Śleboda. Responsibility: conception, underground parkin garage, sections, schemes. 2nd Prize.

he site of the competition led us to the final result. Form and the idea of our building resulted from the constraints we have encountered at the site. The complex was located near Bruckner Villa. We treated the old building as a precious object and priceless heritage. Following that our decision was to partially locate the cultural centre beneath ground level. Interiors are lit by glasses cubes rising above hilly terrain. The surface of pavilions reflect the surrounding historical garden. Team: Anna Stryszewska-Słońska, Małgorzata Biernacka, Aleksandra Demidowicz, Michał Przychodzeń, Paweł Szyszka. Responsibility: conception, plans, sections, 3d model of the Bruckner Villa.

he project is an extension for existing town hall building. Our main objective was to close the gap in the unfinished block with modern infill. Levels of existing buildings varied. Based on that, we proposed to extend levels of the right wing of the building and joint them to the let wing height by a staircase and elevators. The form of the building is minimalistic. It was created with transparent double skin. Elevation is reminiscent of an abstract composition of black squares on white canvas, emphasizing the most important functions in the building like chamber hall. The new extension is a gentle conversation between the existing town hall and modern architecture. Team: Anna Stryszewska-Słońska, Edzard Schultz, Rebeka Czaja, Ewa Plucińska, Michał Przychodzeń, Robert Witczak. Responsibility: conception, communication between buildings (staircase and elevator), stairs 3d model, sections. 3rd Prize.
