Construction of the A5 House near Kołobrzeg begins.

Work on the foundations of the house has been ongoing for two weeks: lean poured concrete, formwork for foundation walls made, benches and footings are reinforced. Attention is drawn not only by the care of the formwork, but also order at the construction site and a professional (!) container for the construction office, where the necessary meetings will be held during the author’s supervision.

The planned completion of construction works is autumn 2021.

Idea

The analog-house website is a part of another website, analog-architecture, and is entirely dedicated to the construction of a single-family house. This chapter seems necessary because it clearly shows many years of  our experience in building houses. In conjunction with a Facebook and Instagram account, the website gives a full picture of how to work on single-family homes, from the first conceptual sketches to the completion of construction works.

AH35

AH35 is a project for a ready-made one-story building, suiting as a place for recreation or work throughout the full year. It covers an area of 35 sqm.

The project tries to define the minimal space required for everyday needs. A timeless and simple form and a contextualized use of materials on the outside of the building allows it to blend in a variety of different places. Be it as a second house in a larger garden for an elder person, a personal reading room or a home-office space, or as a cottage out in the nature. 

The key element of the building is the roof, shadowing the terrace surrounding around the building. This area between “inside” and “outside” is crucial in the design of the building. In summer it serves as a natural extension of the interior, in winter it’s helping to keep the cold and snow out.

The building was designed on a square plan, 5,9 x 5,9 m in size. The main square has again been divided in four squares. One of these squares is holding all of the ancillaries as kitchen, closet and bathroom. Next to it is a private area which can be separated from the rest of the house using a simple curtain. It can serve as office space or a sleeping room.

On top of these two modules a mezzanine has been placed. It can be used for a room for children’s play or as a further sleeping area for up to two people.

DATA 

Covered area* 35,00 m²
Usable area* 30,54 m²
Total area* 35,00 m²
Brutto Cubature*  238,21 m³
Number of overground stories 1 + mezzanine
Length 5,90 m
Width 5,90 m
Height below ridge ** 6,25 m
Minimal building plot size 15 m x 15 m

 

TECHNOLOGY 

The wooden, prefabricated house is founded on a reinforced concrete foundation slab, which, depending on the ground and topographic conditions, lies on the ground or is based on columns and foundation feet. Above the slab, all elements of the house structure such as walls, mezzanine, roof are wooden. The terrace around the house is finished with wooden boards. Prefabrication and skeleton construction of the building allows for precision and speed of project implementation. Depending on the external conditions, the construction of the finished house takes from 6 to 12 weeks.
Roof: Siberian larch shingles, fibre-cement boards
Facade: waterproof plywood, fibre cement panels,
Windows: wooden, aluminium
Heating: as standard, electric remote-controlled, supplemented by a free-standing fireplace cooker.

 

 

DRAFT

The design of the AH35 house is a complete multi-discipline study and consists of a descriptive, drawing and designer’s statements. The documentation also includes a complete interior design with a list of basic equipment elements.

 

APPLICATION / BUILDING PERMIT APPLICATION

The project needs to be adapted by an authorised designer to the specific conditions of the location, such as the load-bearing capacity of the ground, the location of the connections, etc. The buyer applies independently and at his own expense for obtaining the required administrative decisions necessary to implement the project, such as a decision on development conditions (where there is no local land use plan), a map for design purposes, ground survey together with a geotechnical opinion.

The author’s consent to the adaptation of the project is given once in the purchased project.

Living room with an open kitchen

 

The central space of the house is the living room combined into one functional whole with the kitchen and dining room. In the kitchen and dining room, this interior has visual contact with the public part of the site and the street downstream. Located on the other side of the room, the full-width opening connects the interior with the covered terrace space and the private part of the plot. The terrace roofing protects not only against rain but also against the sun on hot summer days. The roof depth has been designed to allow penetration of the sun into the internal space when it is desired, i.e. in the months after summer.

Vertical elements of the interior, including kitchen furniture, door woodwork, etc. have been kept in a homogeneous, white color. Horizontal elements such as floors (concrete floor) and ceilings (exposed architectural concrete) in light gray, as well as a set of modular sofas. Due to this central operation, the multifunctional interior of the house ensures the desired homogeneity.

A5

Replacement permit for the construction of a house A5.

Landscape study made in the studio and agreed in WUOZ at the stage of the construction project in order to obtain permission for the flattened form of the roof. According to the provisions of the local spatial development plan established several years ago, a steep roof had to be designed for the area where the investment was planned. The local plan allowed a flat roof after obtaining the consent of the Provincial Conservator of Monuments. Such consent was issued because the investment area lies far beyond the protection zone of the former village spatial arrangement.

A3

The concept for the interior of A3 project

In contrast to the dark colors of the building facade, the interior is designed as light, with white walls and ceilings and a light gray concrete floor. The roofed outdoor terrace was treated as an extension of the interior and made of the same materials as the center of the building.

 

Guest Bathroom:

The bathroom color concept is a consequence of the color scheme of the whole house. The guest bathroom is divided into two functional zones contrasted with each other. To ensure the intimacy in this bathroom, the outside window was abandoned and natural lighting was provided by a square, mechanically opened skylight, located in the central part of the room.

 

Child’s room:

Deep window sills have been created due to the flush-fitting windows with the external façade. The height of the window sills in the night part was set at a height of 40 cm above the floor (bed level), which allowed them to be used as a place to sit. The low window sill allows the child to come into early contact with the outside world.

In the child’s room, individual furniture has been designed at the entrance wall of the room and in the window area. An individual element is also a mini climbing wall for the child. Other items of equipment come from the Ikea store offer.

The site for the new project A5.

The site for the new house design A5 is located in the Kołobrzeg commune. On the south side it is adjacent to the site built up with a single-family house and an outbuilding, and on the west side it borders with a municipal road. The public road is a section of the unarranged street with a reinforced surface (concrete slabs in the middle of the road lane, arranged in a tiled arrangement), ground shoulders. The area is equipped with sanitary sewage system, water supply, gas pipeline, power cables to supply plots.

The site has a rectangular shape and has a pronounced slope in the southwest direction. There are no trees on the site.

Current photographs from the building site:

One of the most important moments during the construction of the A1 house is planting in the atrium, a perennial plane tree chosen by the investor. The tree, according to the design, occupies the central space of the house and will be the only element filling the space of the atrium.

Single Family House
location: Great Kolobrzeg Area
project: 2018-20
realisation: 2020-22

 

The method of building the plot results from the planned final development, in which a workshop building of identical profile will be built next to the residential building. For optimal use of land for development, an elongated building was designed perpendicular to the street in the northern part of the plot, leaving the remaining part as a reserve for future development.

The two-storey house is divided into an entrance and auxiliary part located on the ground floor and a residential part on the upper floor. By tilting the terrain, each of these levels is in contact with the surrounding terrain.

The central space of the house designed on five squares is a place to prepare meals and consume them. The interior connects along the external walls with a place to rest and further with a covered terrace, which is an integral part of the house.

Single Family House
location: Koszalin
project: 2017-18
construction: 2018-19

The house is located on a long, narrow site in the residential district of Koszalin. A one-storey house set up parallel to the street occupies practically the entire front of the plot and divides it classically into a public part from the road and a private part from the garden. The day part was moved towards the street, and the night part, private towards the garden. A spacious, roofed terrace was designed between this part and the utility part located behind the garage. Between the terrace and the building, a small patio was placed, illuminating the interior of the house, in which a massive chimney was placed. The chimney hearth was directed towards the terrace so that it could heat this part of the house during the transitional seasons.

The location of the building, as well as the way of life of its future residents meant that in addition to the official entrance, overlooking the garden, an additional entrance was designed to the house, through the garage. It is this access to the building that will be the main entrance on a normal work day, which is why an extra wardrobe, pantry and utility room, available from the vestibule, was designed here.

Single Family House
location: Koszalin

project: 2017-18
construction: 2018-2019

Despite the unique location of the site and presence of many trees in the area, the house has a rather introverted character, which corresponds to the disposition and nature of the life of its future residents. The outer walls have relatively few windows, unlike the interior, which has all glazed walls. The house is divided into day and night parts, private organized around the atrium and connected by a covered terrace. The entrance to the building was located between these zones providing it with a view of the patio and further through the terrace a view of the impressive garden.

Atrium, designed on a square plan, is a central, external space of the house equipped with two elements generating heat: an external, massive chimney and a place for a fireplace put in the floor. These two elements, together with the spacious covered terrace, are to create the right climate for being outside also during cooler months.

Project documentation:

In the case of this project, all elements of the design, such as the concept, construction design, executive design, and interior design were placed on the google drive that was available to the Investor.

Interior design: 

In contrast to the dark colors of the building facade, the interior is designed as light, with white walls and ceilings and a light gray concrete floor. The roofed outdoor terrace was treated as an extension of the interior and made of the same materials as the center of the building.

The interior design defines the arrangement of all the ends of the installation (lighting, sockets, switches, sanitary equipment, etc.). Each room is presented in the form of visualization of each of the walls of the room.

 A3, Interior design: child’s room.

Deep window sills have been created due to the flush-fitting windows with the external façade. The height of the window sills in the night part was set at a height of 400 mm above the floor (bed level), which allowed them to be used as a place to sit. The low window sill allows the child to come into early contact with the outside world.

Working drawings: 

At the Executive Design stage, material assumptions adopted earlier were verified. The façade designed with fiber cement boards (Equitone) has gained new divisions.

Site:

The site for the construction of the house is located in the attractive district of Koszalin, near Lake Lubiatowskie, in close proximity to the city forest. Located on a small elevation, it is relatively flat. The biggest value of the site is green growing in the form of tall trees and valuable shrubs. Access via a paved road, but not paved, ensures relatively low traffic of motor vehicles, which translates into the unique silence of the place, located very close to the city center.

Project

Design documentation is prepared in stages, in the following order: conceptual design, construction design, detailed design, interior design, workshop drawings during author supervision, as-built documentation. All project documentation is available in Google Drive, which is also available to the investor.

 

Conceptual Design:

The first stage of the project is the conceptual design. This is the most important stage of creating a house process, the stage where the most valuable decisions are made about how to live in the place, where the building is to be built. The working time for a conceptual design is always different, from a few weeks to even several months, and depends largely on the activity and readiness of future residents to compromise. It is good to have this time.

The Construction Design is a multi-discipline development, i.e. apart from architecture design, it also includes solutions for construction, sanitary and electrical installations. It consists of a descriptive and drawing part for each industry. its integral part is the formal and legal documentation containing all industry agreements, permits, etc. The purpose of the building design is to obtain a building permit and its scope is adapted to this purpose.

 

Detailed Design:

Re-verification of the adopted material assumptions occurs at the stage of work on the Executive Design. The detailed design is the basis for future construction works.

Interior Design:

The interior design stage defines an arrangement of the ends of the installation (lighting, sockets, switches, plumbing fittings, etc.) as well as material and color solutions. Each room is visually developed and presented in the form of a visualization of each of the walls of that particular room. Technical drawings show each wall, floor and ceiling of the room separately and contain accurate information on the arrangement of all interior furnishings.

The Interior Design consists of a A3 brochure that includes realistic views of all walls, technical drawings and a floor plan with the necessary dimensions. An important element of the drawing part are individual furniture designs. The drawing part is complemented by the necessary product combinations: typical furniture, lighting, electrical equipment and sanitary equipment.

… Thanks to the flush-fitting windows with the external façade, deep internal window sills were created. The height of the window sills in the night part was set at a height of 40 cm above the floor (bed level), which allowed them to be used as a place to sit. The low window sill allows the child to come into early contact with the outside world.

Single Family House
location: Great Koszalin Area
project: 2016-17
construction: 2017-2018

The house is located near Koszalin. Access to the site was provided from an unpaved public road at the east side. Access to the site was provided through a gate and a gate located opposite the main entrance to the building.

Designed in the shape of an elongated rectangle, the building with dimensions of 26.06 x 9.56 m is located in the northern part of the site, optimally zoning the site into a public part from the road side and a private part from the garden side.

The main entrance is designed on the east-west axis, which runs through the center of the building, and on which a two-story terrace was designed, which is the center of the house and an element connecting the interior with the garden space. The north-south axis is a less official connection that provides communication between the garage, wardrobe, pantry and kitchen.

project: 2015-2017
construction: 2017-2020

This functionally small house was designed in Lubiatów near Koszalin on a large site. The main entrance and entrance to the site was designed on an axis running perpendicular to the road located in the center of the site. This axis from the street to the driveway zone under the building rises slightly upwards, later descending into the site has its continuation in the entrance to the house, vestibule, atrium, terrace, pond and a view of the distant area.

The building was designed on a trapezoidal plan, set narrower wall to the street. Located centrally in the front wall, the entrance to the building was functionally located between the day and night zones. Opposite the entrance, there is an atrium, which repeats the building’s outline, followed by a roofed, spacious terrace connecting the private part of the house located on the left with the public space on the right.

The interior of the patio is filled with the plane tree previously chosen by the investor.

H13 in Koszalin published in ECOLA (European Conference of Leading Architects) 2015 Award for the use of render/plaster in Architecture.

ECOLA combines an international architecture competition and a conference focussing on the building material plaster. Competition and conference resulted from the award “Bundesdeutscher Architekturpreis Putz” established in Germany in 2000. The organisers then were and still are “Bundesverband Ausbau und Fassade im Zentralverband des Deutsche Baugewerbes” and Sto SE & Co. KGaA.

The nomination competition held every two years acknowledges individual projects or overall town planning concepts, which use plaster as an element characterising the architecture. At the also biennial ECOLA Conference, the lectures, workshops, the respective award ceremony as well as press dates are all about the topic of “architecture and plaster”.

The ECOLA Award is a nomination competition.

In 2015, 19 nomination jurors nominated 150 projects from 13 countries. These projects, from which an international jury selected two winners and three special mentions, were divided into two categories:

-new buildings or town planning concepts, which are characterised by plaster and 
-refurbishments, conversions or listed projects, which are committed to a sensible use of the material plaster.

Winners, participants being awarded a special mentions as well as all jurors were invited to exchange their experience and know-how concerning plaster from 24 to 26 September 2015 at the ECOLA Conference in England and attended the festive award ceremony.

Realisation

Our goal is not only designing but also building houses. A good project does not yet ensure good implementation. For this to happen, implementation must be supervised. Designing means continuous decision making, even to the very end, also during the implementation of the object.

A Single-family House in Lubiatowo

Located in Lubiatowo, now a suburb of a large Pomeranian city, the house was built on a large plot sloping toward the south and offering views toward the Lubiatowskie Lake. Due to the slope, the house hovers aboveground; the main story rests on pillars, and only partly on a basement containing utility rooms.  The linear building divides the slope into the upper part accessible from the road, and the private lower part, left in nearly natural form. However, due to the transparency of the building and its bridge-like character, space seems to flow through it and beneath it. Also inside, the divisions are not definite and complete, although the zoning is clear. The main functional division, into the open part with the living room and the kitchen, and the private one with the bedrooms, is emphasized by a large entrance hall, glazed on both sides and accessible from a footbridge.

ANALOG

ANALOG is an architecture studio run by Piotr Smierzewski. Piotr studied architecture at the TU Gdansk from 1983-1988 and graduated at the OSU, Stillwater, USA in 1992. He had been teaching assistant at the OSU and assistant at the TU Gdansk and TU Darmstadt (Prof. B. Jakubeit/Prof. D. Eberle). In 2013-17 he lectured at the TU Koszalin.

Piotr worked in Germany from 1992-1999, where he run his own office Piotr Smierzewski Freier Architekt in Karlsruhe from 1995-1999. He later moved to Poland and founded HS99 with Dariusz Herman in 1999.

Their most famous projects include the underground sacristy of Koszalin Cathedral (1998-2001), the seat of the Glos Pomorza daily newspaper (1997-2001), as well as the award-winning building of the Scientific Information Centre and Academic Library (CINiBA) in Katowice (2002-2012). In 2012 this building won the Grand Prix of the President of Poland in the Life in Architecture competition organised by Architektura-Murator. This was the first architectural prize in Poland ever awarded by the head of the state.

With HS99, Piotr Smierzewski was also shortlisted for the Mies van der Rohe Award 2013 (CINiBA), won the Building of the Year 2012 in the category of museums and libraries, awarded by members of the international ArchDaily news portal, for CINiBA. For residential building ZW109 in Koszalin they won the polish Brick Award 2015.

The projects by Piotr Smierzewski stand out for a strong sense of “place” and deep knowledge of the theory of architecture, what allows to reduce architecture to its very essence.
