Text description provided by the architects. An extraordinary residential house NEW GROVE was designed by the architectural studio Šebo Lichý in cooperation with acclaimed Slovak architect Drahan Petrovič, who worked for several years in Vancouver. In this project they have applied the principles of the Canadian housing and created a very first project of its kind in Slovakia, which gives clients the opportunity to design and customize their own apartment. The architectural concept is based on the principle of flexible housing units to produce a virtually unlimited number of variations.
The result is a fresh, modern and original construction, which revives the locality, improves family living in the largest Slovak housing estate and elevates it to a new level. Clients can choose the number of bathrooms, number of rooms, open and connected living room with kitchen, design a loft or partition the space. Flexible concept also allows to change living space in the future. But what makes this project even more interesting is that clients can design their own interior as well as exterior. By the beginning of the construction it was possible to select either the number or size of windows or balconies. This created a distinctive facade design with various balconies and loggias, which looks very clean and pleasant.
NEW GROVE consists of two residential towers connected by a common footstool, which is composed of smaller retail outlets. It is rather a chamber project with 72 apartments, one- to five-room. 83 parking spaces are located on one above ground and one underground floor. There are also storage spaces for each apartment. Entrances from the street and to the garages are barrier-free. Access to the apartments is provided by two core units with stairs and lifts.
The project is situated in a location with good public facilities, shops, schools, densely covered with public transport and various options for leisure-time and recreational activities. There is a racecourse, Danube embankment and park. Architects decided to elevate this exceptional natural environment and planted the building elegantly in the surrounding greenery. The entire base is lined with facing panels made of natural material, the balconies as well. Architects have managed to not only visually link the housing with the surrounding greenery, but let in sun and light to the whole neighborhood. As a result, there are pleasant sunny, airy and spacious apartments with spectacular views. Architecture of the apartment building NEW GROVE is unique, pioneering and especially based on real needs and wishes of future apartment owners.
