The projects were created as part of a competition announced by the Ministry of Development and Technology. Among the submitted works, 5 best concepts were selected, which will be sent to interested local authorities.
Contest participants were tasked with designing a 3-story building for 24 families. The most important criteria are architectural value, functionality, and low energy consumption.
The competition committee rated the works prepared by 5 studios the highest: Racing Green Interiors Ltd; Rafał Mazur and Łukasz Gaj; Łukasz Stępnik; WAWW Pracownia Projektowa Mirosław Wojcieszak and Gąska Studio Łukasz Gąska Marta Sowińska-Gąska, and Młynarczyk Architects Ltd.
Free projects for use
Award-winning works will be included in the architectural and construction projects database of Bank Gospodarstwa Krajowego. Local authorities implementing communal buildings will be able to use them for free.
Local authorities can also count on financial support for housing investments. The support amount will reach approximately 1 billion PLN.
Since the 1990s, communal construction has been limited. In many cities, this form of support for families without housing has been completely neglected. The Ministry of Development and Technology’s initiative aims to reverse this trend.
