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 project by CHYBIK+KRISTOF Associated Architects for the Faculty of Fine Arts, Brno University of Technology is based on the idea of maximal respect to the character of the park’s locality in the city center for which it is designed. It is a complex of separate pavilions based on the floor plan of the existing built-up area of provisional assembled buildings, so-called likusáks. The concept of the project presupposes an interaction between education, culture and the public. Its realization will significantly contribute to revitalize the neglected eastern part of the park on Kraví hora. 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.
CHYBIK+KRISTOF Associated Architects won an international architectural and urbanistic competition on 33 apartment buildings close to Bratislava. The project aims to create quality housing with direct contact with water surface. It also sets a considerable part of the house into the riparian forest in the river-bed of the Danube. They have designed for each object a group of four materials which create together a common atrium as well as a scenic jetty near the water. The resulting combination of two- or three-floored buildings makes ideal conditions for social life inside each villa house whilst at the same time it provides enough privacy in each apartment. They did not design an ensemble of anonymous apartments, but a place with a bountiful view on water surface and with sojourning areas in the semi-private space.
