Chybik + Kristof Associated Architects, in collaboration with Viennese office BKK-3, shared with us their third place winning proposal for the ‘Green City’ housing complex which will include 700 apartments in Graz, Austria. The whole concept of their project is to create a clear hierarchy of public and semi-public spaces by means of simple volumes of apartment buildings. Their design is based on repeating the same three objects and interlinking them through a common yard ranked among three best projects. More images and architects’ description after the break.
The recreational family houses near Bratislava, designed by Chybik + Kristof Associated Architects, offer a possibility of permanent settlement. The project aims to create a residential area of high quality with direct contact with water surface. Furthermore, a considerable number of houses are located in the area of an ancient riparian forest in the riverbed of the Danube. The project’s main motto is to set up a space for a life in contact with nature, a life with a link to the original fauna and flora. More images and architects’ description after the break.
