Semi-detached houses, Daszewice, PL

Daszewice is a small town in the suburbs of Poznań. This place has a quiet rural character, surrounded by fields, forest and meandering lazy river.

 The plot is located in the immediate vicinity of the forest on the one side, and surrounded by cultivated fields on other. On site, were designed 9 twin-houses. Each unit- half of thinhouse, has its own garage, small garden and terrace in the back. The layout of the plots was designed so that the houses were set alternately, without blocking the view of the forest or fields to other neighbors.

The shape of houses is direct reference to the surrounding local and original farm buildings, where farm buildings as well as residential houses had a simple form. A reduced architectural expression resulted from the practicality and the best functionality of the form used. 

The dwalling of semi-detached houses in their simplified and economical form refers to the classic archetype of the house.

Thanks to the modern interpretation of the traditional form: adding a large entrance arcade , dividing the roof into four symmetrical areas, as well as choosing the natural and simple materials, causes that the buildings of the team have a modern form, with an interesting tectonic formal drawing and human scale, and at the same time referring to the local rural character of the place.

The ground floor has a constructively and functionally open layout, giving full potential to future owners to shape its shape in any way.

The layout of the functions on the ground floor is very clear. As a buffer on the side of the road there is an entrance hall with a small toilet. The rest of the ground floor has a constructively and functionally open layout, giving full potential to future owners to shape its shape in any way. As there is no load-bearing wall here, the interior of the kitchen, dining room and living area can remain spatially separated or, depending on the needs, be partitioned accordingly. The upper floor has a clear and simple layout with an internal bright staircase with a window, two single rooms and one with an additional wardrobe, plus large spacious bathroom- what gives a large space for a family.
