Anti-smog bridge in Warsaw

ELEMENT

GUIDELINES

The main guideline for the design of the Bicycle-Pedestrian Bridge across the Vistula River in Warsaw became the relationship between the existing bridges and the new form. The proposed bridge due to its lower rank cannot dominate or compete with the existing Świętokrzyski Bridge. For this reason, architects decided to design a horizontal structure blending with the landscape of Warsaw. The bridge aims not only to connect two riverbanks, but also to become an observation platform. After extending the axes from ul. Karowa and Okrzei it turned out that it do not overlap. In order to connect these axes, the bridge has an angled part which serves as a panoramic spot where users can enjoy view of two Warsaw’s riverbanks – Old Town and entrance to the Prague Port.

COMMUNICATION

To create efficient connection between riverbanks both bridge banks were designed taking into consideration existing geotechnical and landscape conditions. Both bridge banks are adapted for use of disabled people. The left bridge bank is equipped in elevator and ramp that smoothly connects the bridge with existing cyclist and pedestrian paths. Right bridge bank connects the project with existing pedestrian-cyclist and recreation paths. The project on this site is an extension of Stefana Okrzei street.

ANTI-SMOG FEATURES

As the escalating problem of the smog in Warsaw has reached the dangerous level, architects came up with an idea of creating a bridge that would effortlessly clean the city’s air. To achieve it, the white paint with titanium dioxide was used to cover the bridge structure. Except reducing the smog and pollutions, it is UV light and corrosion resistant. To reinforce the cleansing functions, roof was covered in moss and greenery that absorb polluted air, produces oxygen, increases the structure’s fire resistance and limits the roof heating during warm days. Moreover, it connects the green areas on the left bridge bank with the Greenery 2000 on the right bridge bank. One square meter of the green roof equals 79 trees.

MATERIAL AND TECHNICAL SOLUTIONS

Non-slip pavement surface, bicycle bridge path and ramps were made in epoxy-polyurethane insulation and surface system

Galileo Reference Centre

ELEMENT

August 20, 2019 / in 3dsmax, Corona Renderer, Photoshop / by ELEMENT

Primarily housing office space and computer rooms, the center has been designed as a highly efficient and resilient building which can be adapted into the future. Architects convince that this building is 35% more energy efficient than required regulations. The life-cycle of the building was the main aim of the project. Galielo Reference Centre is constructed from wood and consists structures easily disassembled and reassembled. Facade is made out of one component in three different transparencies. From fully opaque to fully transparent. This provides necessary permeability and enclosure in required areas of the building.

The aim of the project was to create a dynamic mixed-use complex for the living, working, and leisure in the former industrial harbor area’s. Residents of Superlofts are offered a space for co-working and organizing events in the three-story podium and on the common terrace. The higher part of Mark project provides compact, flexible lofts with high and bright interiors. Moreover, the building provides an open framework which easily adapts to changing inhabitants and their various lifestyles. We are glad to be part of this project.

Visualizations were made by Corona Renderer Engine in 3dsmax. Forest Pack is our favorite program for implementing greenery. These programmes give us full control over the final outcome of an image.

Chopin International Music Centre

ELEMENT

August 20, 2019 / in 3dsmax, ArchiCAD, Corona Renderer, Forest Pack, Photoshop / by ELEMENT

Location: Żelazowa Wola, Poland

Project year: 2018

Lead Architects: Jakub Figel, Filip Kurasz

Team: Karolina Jankowska, Jakub Tajer

Acoustics: Arau Acustica – Higini Arau, Jordi Oliver / www.arauacustica.com

Żelazowa Wola is a small village in Poland, well-known as a birthplace of a famous polish compositor and pianist – Fryderyk Chopin. The picturesque scenery of endless forest favors leisure activities and relaxation. Tourists from all over the world gather here to honor Fryderyk Chopin.

Landscape of Żelazowa Wola connotes with peaceful country site with wide fields and all-embracing nature. It inspired architects to design a building which will correspond with this unique scenery.

Architects proposed the concept of new International Music Centre, which was designed to blend into the nature. The whole Centre integrates with the park by set of composition openings and view connections with the Fryderyk Chopin’s birth house. While walking through the park the only transparency is provided through the lower part of the trees – trunks. Treetops are covering the view with its broad sizes. This dependence was an inspiration to design a half-divided façade of the building. Light plinth and solid top. The lower part was covered with glass and mirror panels to let the building sink in greenery. The wooden planks, placed on the upper part of the façade, were made by using old Japanese Shou Sugi Ban technique. This burnt up wood is durable and resistant to pests, simultaneously being highly aesthetic.

Natural material refers to historical wooden Mazovia cottage architecture taking into account architectural traditions of the region. For example, traditional gable roof is interpreted in the modern way by diagonally placed ridgepole. All solutions aimed to prove that not the building is the most important thing in this particular location, but the nature itself.

The main entrance to the building is kept in the old manor style referring to the Fryderyk Chopin’s XIX century house. Pathways and bridges near the building are designed to connect the site with existing park. It encourages visitors to walk through area and experience unification with whole park set.
The Concert Hall was designed in collaboration with Arrau Acustica. The volume has 7500m3 and can house 600 viewers and 100 musicians. The shape of the Hall was designed to provide the best acoustic conditions. Glazed wall behind the scene is emphasizing the beautiful context and allows visitors to have a direct view on the park, which becomes a constantly changing scenery.

The building is physically and functionally divided into three blocks to provide functional clarity of the plan and to diffuse one big mass into three smaller parts. This provides desired views of the park and suitable insolation.

First and main part is a Concert Hall connected with all necessary functions and welcoming area with double-floor foyer, ticket desk, cloakrooms and cafeteria with leisure space. Second block contains Chamber Hall, practice rooms for musicians and offices whereas in the third block are designed conference, education and guest rooms. Second and third block are connected with chamber foyer and restaurant space. Three blocks are linked with glazed corridor which provides the unique scenery from the back side of the building.

kayak architects proves that there is no need to occupy a new plot for construction. The use of flat roofs as a construction base would provide easy access for future air vehicles. The lightweight structure is designed with arcs to create a more convenient landing system.
