Category: UNLIMITED ARCHITECTURE:

1st place: Oksana Shumelda, Ukraine

Project description:

The is a combination of textures and shapes that play an important role in creating the aesthetic. Metal is an accent material. It defines the character and mood of the building, where water dominates.

Home planning. The floor plans have many open spaces with almost no interior partitions. The first floor is a kitchen and dining room with panoramic windows overlooking the terrace. There is also a bathroom and a shower with a sauna. The second floor is the lounge area.

Thanks to the skylights, the space is always filled with light here. The spacious terrace with a swimming pool is the heart of the holiday home, an ideal place for family evenings. The accent is a glass box with greenery inside. The “RUST HOUSE” project is located on the outskirts of Lviv. Nevertheless, the biggest challenge for us was to integrate the house into a typical district with typical buildings. The tiles of the Tubądzin Group account for 70% of all tiles used in the project.

2nd place: Monika Kalita, Poland

Project description:

A HOME FOR LIVING IN HARMONY. A house for living in harmony supports its inhabitants and helps to achieve life balance. It was created with respect for nature and is in a synergistic relationship with it – what is outside affects the interior of the house and the people living in it, and what is inside affects the outside. Inside and outside support each other.

To preserve the existing trees, the house was designed in the form of a complex of 7 detached buildings on a circular plan, each of which serves as a homeroom. The solids were placed on a wooden platform placed on piles. This made it possible to minimize interference with the forest land. The project assumes the use of natural materials: construction made of lunar wood, and walls made of hemp blocks and clay. Each of the free-standing rooms differs in the color of the interior and facade. Hexagonal Tubądzin tiles (Dorota Koziara’s Cielo e Terra collection) were used outside. This made it possible to obtain the effect of tree bark on the round houses. On the roof, smooth slabs were placed, properly cut and adjusted to a round plane. A mosaic in the form of a flower was arranged on the floors inside. The tiles come from the same collection. In the of the house for living in harmony, I used an unusual approach to the existing space, as well as the original way of arranging the tiles, which exposes their quality. I also used all available colors of tiles from the selected collection.

3rd place: Laila Magdy, Egypt

Project description:

Beach yoga is a yoga practice in a relaxing beach setting, combining the soothing effects of ocean waves with the calming yet energizing practice of asanas. A special structure system was thought of to suit this mood and for yogis to feel these vibrations. The concept of the structure is to make several linear sections separated from each other with different thicknesses, instead of creating a single block structure. This gave it a light feel, matching it with the surrounding vibes of the place, being on the beach.

1st place: Natalia Nykolyshyn, Ukraine (co-author: Yaroslav Bakhovskyi)

Project description:

The living room is part of the project of a country house of a Lviv art collector. The house is located in Lviv, the village of Zubra. The area of the project is 152 m2, and the area of ​​the living room – is 24.4 m2. The main task was to create a cosy, modern space with traditional motifs. We used Tubadzin tiles from the Cielo E Terra Bianco collection on the floor in the 2400×1200 format. The walls match the shade of the floor, we wanted to get a full space where important things are emphasized – sculptures, paintings, and vintage furniture. Some furniture is also made of Tubadzin Fair Beig tiles. This project is very important to us because it was created during the war, but we are still creating and designing a future where there will be a new peaceful life.

2nd place: Elena Maksymchuk, Ukraine (co-author: Dima Shuripa)

Project description:

Friends, I want to introduce you to a wonderful country house. Our team used natural materials such as ceramics, wood and metal in the project. GRAY PULPIS SAT PORCELAIN GRES 2398X1198 was used to decorate the fireplace. We used GRAY PULPIS POL 1198X1198 porcelain stoneware to finish the floor. This plate perfectly reflects the calm and noble shades of nature. Such materials will decorate the house of our customers for a long time. Durable and high-quality materials, do not require repair. This means that they are friends with ecology and the future of our planet.

3rd place: Enikő Salamon, Hungary

Project description:

I had the opportunity to  a 205 m² house for a wonderful young couple in my current project, where the entire ground floor and very wide staircase have been covered with Monolith Grand Cave Gray tiles, which – with a raw stone effect – create the perfect backdrop for the minimalist style of the house. My clients have also entrusted me with planning a comprehensive smart home solution to meet all their needs. In addition to the more common smart home features such as lighting, cooling, heating, ventilation, shading, security and access controls, other unique solutions have been developed: integrated audio and multimedia systems, motorized curtains and pre-configured lighting patterns with motion sensors. Another exciting feature is the touch-activated smart home controls hidden on the countertop of the kitchen island.

The entrance hall, corridor and staircase create a coherent, harmonious whole thanks to the use of bright white furniture, asymmetric front panels, black handles and accessories, geometric shapes and unique metal elements. The open kitchen, dining room and living room are designed in darker colors with brown and rust-red accents. The oven and exhaust fan are integrated into the kitchen island. Lighting is provided by a hidden magnetic track system with a dramatic LED ceiling-mounted extension. In the living room, one part of a large sofa is open to the kitchen-dining room.

Category: YOUNG POWER

1st place: Freddie Bull, United Kingdom

Project description:

The key issue of our generation is dementia care, which I don’t think is sufficiently addressed by architecture. I took the opportunity to show how a dementia user-centered concept can change lives.

I designed a small housing scheme in Sheffield, UK as an example of a dementia project, consisting of 8 apartments. There is a pottery studio on site (finished in TUBĄDZIN Dots Gray Wall Tiles) and research shows how this can be effective for residents’ relaxation and a sense of purpose.

The taller lighted space encourages casual interaction and can be used as a space for residents to display their pottery work, as well as a landmark to help them find their way around. I used several dementia strategies in this program. They include a unique pattern in the clay plaster on each apartment to subtly differentiate them to help residents find their way around. To facilitate this, each apartment has its color, which is located both on the door and on the internal TUBĄDZIN touch tiles. These subtle cues help calm residents subconsciously, other techniques include staggered massaging to create direct views and wandering paths to help rather than fight this key symptom. The buildings have a lightweight wooden structure that is covered with hemp, creating a simple structure with high thermal mass. The interior is decorated with beach wood and TUBĄDZIN Touch Wall Collection tiles. The roofs are pitched to maximize solar gain and then covered with wood shingles.

2nd place: Marta Rybicka, Poland

Project description:

The main inspiration for the project was the growing trend of micro houses in Poland and around the world. They may become the answer to the upcoming crisis in the real estate market.

Buying your apartment in a good neighbourhood or a large plot of land to build a house is a luxury that most young adults cannot afford.

Hardly anyone needs 250 square meters of a house, the same functions can fit on 150, or even 50 or 30 square meters. At the same time, such houses are cheaper and more ecological. It is the environmental aspects that are particularly important – they guarantee a simple life conducive to everyday interaction with the environment. The interiors of this microhouse have been designed for young couples who are looking for rest and tranquillity in their home. The project was mainly about enabling residents to enjoy the surrounding nature in a cosy interior.

And that’s how the relatively minimalist space was domesticated through carefully selected stoneware tiles, wooden accessories and elements, and a sofa in a characteristic red color.

3rd place: Andres Quevedo, Spain

Project description:

Mube is a social facility, dedicated to commerce, art and gastronomic gatherings with a floor dedicated to this use. The building stands on a plot in the south of Barcelona, a strategic point that meets the intersection of four streets at its edges. The plot of 10,000 m2 is 50% dedicated to a public square, the center of which is crossed by the edge of the water, which marks the access point to the facilities.

The building is sunk into the ground and its curvature creates a gentle slope that marks access to the building. The cuts in its 4 façades, from ground to floor, rise to higher levels, generating tears that are filled with vegetation hanging from the walls.

Inside, a dome covered with ceramic tiles decorated with black brass connects the structure and adds to the spatial experience, creating a path where works of art can be visualized. A ramp at its center rises as an access point to the upper two levels, which serve as commercial spaces for consumption and work (in that order).

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE WINNERS!

Projects that did not qualify for the finals will be subject to additional analysis and some of them will be included in the Inspiration catalog together with the winning works of TDA’22.
