Text description provided by the architects. We just received this very interesting building from Sebastian Nagy. This apartment house TRIANGOLO, located in Nitra, Slovakia, was created as a dialog between natural predispositions, town and the construction site locality.
Further information and photos after the break.
The apartment house TRIANGOLO was created as a dialog between natural predispositions, town and the construction site locality. The Nitra’s upland, Zobor and meander of the river Nitra represented basic inspirational dominants. Triangular parcel and the roof of harmonic curve together with dispositional and material concept eventually formed architecture into its final resemblance.
From typological point of view the building is a three-tract, the corridors of which are lit along the entire height by daylight from terminal vertical skylight. In the architectonic expression dominates mono-materialism, two facades of identical appearance and curved section of the roof with domes. The dispositional and also the constructional principle unroll from bearing ferro-concrete cores, which enabled creation of apartments in various size categories. Individual conception is also indicated by the house symbol located by the entrance to the house.
