Kamyk Heritage Park / Tamizo Architects

Poland based Tamizo Architects have sent us their latest project, the Kamyk Heritage Park. The idea of the park’s concept was to create a kind of small village with a few different buildings/functions which mix village with contemporary style at the same time.

The plot is located in a small village in Poland called Kamyk. It’s quite big and it’s located in a village landscape plot with two small ponds in the center of it. The main building of the whole concept and a first part of the competition was a restaurant/wedding house building.

More images and full architect’s description after the break.

One of the most important guideline for this project was that the building should be able to serve three separate wedding parties at the same time which should be serviced by one kitchen. Of course the plan should be flexible and in case of big parties, the need to merge it in one space.

The architecture of the building should be modern but at the same time it should correspond to the surrounding buildings character. That’s why we use typical sloping thatched roofs as a symbol of the village style and simple white walls with big openings as a contrast and symbol of present time architecture.

The openings give a great view at the beautiful landscape. The building consists in 3 separate solids with restaurant areas joined by the main entrance area and the kitchen. In a center of it there is a big rectangular patio.

The second part of the ‘Kamyk Heritage Park’ consists in a small hotel building for the wedding parties guests. It could be designed as a part of the restaurant building, but because of the functional aspects we decided to design it as a separate building. The function was realy simple: six rooms for the parties guests and some technical rooms.

The main challenge was to define solids which could correspond to the scale and character of the village. Our final decision was to tract each hotel room as a separate house. The mix of six different wooden houses with white simple boxes give us an interesting result which was quite different than the wedding house building, but at the same time it suits well to it. The whole concept will be completed by following functions: temporary market with local vegetables, fruits, meats, cheeses… small scene for occasional ceremony, and others…
