The Farmhouse in the context of sustainable development, history, and tradition. This design is not only about a modern building or the transformation of embedded in the area, which would be the synthesis of local tradition, a beautiful landscape, and good function.
When creating the individual barns of The Farmhouse, we were guided by a harmonious approach to nature, primarily to the play of light and shadow, terrain, existing greenery, and infrastructure.
Large, sunlit glazing has been shaded with an openwork facade, terrace roofs, or dense greenery.
Thanks to this, the house will not be exposed to excessive sun exposure in the summer.
Guided by the principle of sustainable development, we made sure to preserve the valuable tree stand.
To better integrate the building with the extremely valuable and beautiful landscape, we designed a footbridge on the first floor and platforms on the ground floor, which then adjust to the topography of the area.
The entrance portal of the new house opens up with a glass facade facing the adjacent courtyard and the future main entrance of the old house reconstruction opposite.
The glass facade has an openwork wooden translucent curtain in front of it, which relates to the original ornamental feature that decorates the entrance of the old house.
Locating the entrances on a common axis strengthens the dialogue between the old and the new.
The design philosophy with regards to „The Farmhouse” project places great emphasis on the relationship between man and nature with reference to place, history, and tradition.
This relationship stems from exploring the cultural context, as well as involving contemporary structure and design.
We believe that in this way, our buildings are not merely anonymous or unspiritual and that they are something more significant than just a modern buildings.
We think in BXB studio that this kind of openness with regard to heritage and tradition allows us to discover a creative richness, full of great creativity and that this kind of creation of space gives our buildings durability and timelessness.
Architectural model of the Polish Farmhouse. The Farmhouse project was created simultaneously on a sheet of paper, with a computer model, and with a physical model that evolved in our model workshop.
Thanks to all of this, we have fully exercised the possibilities of perception and the creation of space.The final architectural model allowed us to check the final design solutions.
This all represented a useful tool for architects and engineers at subsequent stages of technical design development.
The architectural model of the Polish Farmhouse was shown in the award-winning movie production ArchiPaper created by Unique Vision Studio.
