Conversion of a single-family building

DEKOP Pracownia Architektury as Architects

A conversion of a residential building, the so-called "Polish cube", which was built in the mid-sixties, into the company headquarters. The property has a clear functional arrangement, which satisfied the needs of a new owner, so no major design changes were introduced. The aim of the project was to change the image and highlight the existing strengths of the building. Wooden blinds were used in a natural color, which will patinate into a greyish silver colour over time. The elevations are divided horizontally in order to highlight the first floor. The building was marked with the elements identifying the company. The existing garden was adapted to a green car park with openwork plastic paving blocks.
