Architecture Competition


The scope of the Contest is the design of an energy-efficient home on a modular timber structure, with exterior/interior finishes made of traditional or contemporary products.


The main function of the building is that of a home. The gross floor area may vary between 100-120 square meters. As concerns the height of the building, it may have a ground floor and an attic. The spatial development may allow the design of split-levels/attics, provided that all safety requirements are fulfilled.


The structure of the home must be modular and may be designed using any solution based on timber. The foundation, support and setting solutions must consider the component of spatial flexibility (the possibility to change the site).


Through an expressive and complex architectural language, the home may be a landmark in the built environment. The benefits which the architectural solution may bring are reflected in the construction details and used materials.
