House in Poznan by Easst Architects

The house in Poznan, Poland was designed for a family of four by Easst Architects. The biggest challenge was to fit the extensive functional program proposed by the investor on a very small plot of only 290 m2 with a front width of less than 16 meters. Design has become a complicated puzzle, but the more restrictions the more interesting is the design process.

As a result, we obtained over 250 m2 of usable floor space on three floors, and the house finally houses as many as 5 bedrooms. Two sides of the building adjoin the neighboring buildings because it is a partial reconstruction of an existing small residential building. This made it much easier to obtain more space (m2) but complicated the building structure.

KC Design Studio: We fill the fragmental areas with the service functions of the residence to create the complete and open public and private space. The design point of the open space is the layer presentation. The connection and openness of the living room, dining room, and kitchen will be felt when you enter the house from the balcony.

Through the furniture and surrounding design corresponding to each space, from the exterior to the interior, from the front to the back, the different materials or the furniture heights are applied to present the rich but not messy space expression. The gray concrete texture serves as the basis of the space. The use of wood, iron pieces, terrazzo, and striped glass creates the mild and

The driving design principles of the Brick Vault House respond to regionally available construction techniques – both traditional and contemporary – and the Spanish Mediterranean climate. It is organised around a structural grid system, which allowed us to resolve the typical construction details so that future houses could have different configurations, avoiding replication but still maintaining some level of standardisation. The character of the house is given by its structural materials –the green steel frame and exposed load-bearing brick vaults present throughout all spaces, and its irregular modular layout –creating numerous porches and terraces as well as varying views. The house responds
