Nostalgia of the gallery house

Metropolitan Institute of Bratislava

Bratislava, Slovakia

Our competitive proposal of the apartment complex for seniors is designed as a green oasis of peace and relaxation, which stands on the border of a scattered built-up area of Csáky Park and a dense network of family houses in Prievoz. Concerning the preservation of full-grown trees, we propose the maximum use of the plot, which respects the scale of the surrounding buildings


The height of the housing development is connected to the surrounding houses and gradually uses the limit of three floors. Access to the housing units is in the form of a common gallery, which connects the entire complex at the second-floor level. Elevators in the mass of the building serve as a safe mode of transport in case of bad weather. The traditional archetype of the gabled roof, which is commonly used in the area, completes the overall atmosphere and, at the same time, helps reduce the scale of the whole complex.
