Cornerstones

Project description

Kamionek district is metaphorically related to stones. Thus, our project mainly focuses on the idea of cornerstones that represents historically significant buildings which we bring to our site from contextual surrounding. To express monumentality and importance of the stones we propose a design of modular dormitories that represent constant change in student life, expression, liveliness, and creativity. Thus, heritage building remains untouched to preserve its origins and uniqueness.
