Minimalist single household residence designed in 2013 by JRKVC located in Bratislava, Slovakia.
Description by JRKVC Easy temporary: I need to stay in a small home on a small plot at an inexpensive worth. Finances was fastened at € seventy five.000. I’m nonetheless remembering final summer time on the countryside. Might we recycle the typology, morphology, even decor of Slovakian rural structure? There are specific rules encoded in conventional people structure, verified by ages and nonetheless related. Particularly within the context of the necessity to scale back our ecological footprint and power waste. Greater shouldn’t be all the time higher! Easy buildings didn’t struggle with the character however has grow to be a part of it. They have been constructed of native supplies that have been available and didn’t want an extended and troublesome transport – wooden, clay and straw to call a number of. The home windows didn’t carry out in addition to in the present day, in order that they have been stored slightly small. An underneath–roof porch, referred to as “gánok” was conventional a part of the home, making certain the contact with outdoors setting even in winter or throughout dangerous climate. Through the design course of we appeared again to those rules. We proposed a fusion of previous and modern structure. The icon–formed home has a small footprint, tiny picturesque home windows and a porch. Floor flooring is organized by a standard three–room scheme. There’s central “service field” manufactured from plywood – there’s a rest room, rest room, stairs, storage and the kitchen built-in inside. Remaining “destructive” area – round and above the field – are the rooms. Front room, primary bed room on the floor flooring and a one within the attic. Modest flooring space of the lounge is compensated by an enormous curtain wall heading north, actually extending the inside space into the backyard. Because of the orientation there isn’t any solar shading system wanted. The room and the research space on prime of the picket field is full of a mushy northern sky mild. Home is constructed with structural insulated panels (SIP) manufactured from OSB panels sandwiched round a foam core product of polystyrene. An enormous concrete flooring is used for heating and storing thermal power. To maintain the worth down, there are not any refined techniques built-in in the home.
