This is a project by KWK Promes and it is located at Poland. Project's program: Single family house. There are fourteen images for Auto-Family House.
Nowadays the houses are located in the suburbs and in the outskirts of the city. Therefore, the car plays a significant role as a main transport. Due to which, we enter the house driving in through the garage and the main entrance is hardly used.
In this project the only access to the plot is from the south, where there was a conflict between the driveway and the garden to be designed. Therefore, the garden and the house is elevated to the level 1 while the entrance stays at the level 0.
For the inhabitants' comfort the driveway leads them to the garden, creating easy connection between two floors. To preserve the garden intimacy, that could be disturbed with an entrance, the driveway was covered with green roof and walls. As a result the created tunnel rises up into the garden and becomes the house. The garage, a typical part of the 'unclean' zone, is now the representative entrance-driveway section.
Therefore, a new typology of a family house is defined by joined entrance and driveway that now is a part of the clean zone.
The owner of the house is an art collector which inspired the idea of joining together: the entrance, the driveway and his gallery of paintings located in the tunnel. Therefore, the living space which expanded after adding the driveway and the car is now an integral part of the interior.
