Grand Prix of the KOŁO Competition “Łazienki Design 2022”
Grand Prix of the KOŁO Competition “Łazienki Design 2022” and a special award for the best designed public toilet in accordance with the principles of universal design was received by the project “SUBTILITAS” by Dominik Pierzchlewicz, Kuba Zajusz and Tomasz Bachórz† According to the jury, the work is distinguished by a good integration in the context of the historical environment, with respect for the values of the historic Orangery. The newly designed pavilion deviates from the historic building and at the same time forms a visually connecting element with the existing greenhouses. The Orangery wall attached to the pavilion foyer can provide an impressive backdrop for the exhibition of sculptures. A positive element of the solution is the location of the entire application program on the ground floor. The toilet block is legible, the placement of adapted toilets for people with disabilities is clear and equal. Access to sanitary facilities provides the desired intimacy. The decision to neutralize the glass volume using sliding curtains is simple and at the same time offers many economical alternatives, both for architectural and technical reasons. The jury noted that the minimalist architecture of the pavilion requires the development of architectural, technical and constructive solutions of the highest quality and class. The jury also awarded this solution with a special prize in the field of universal design. This award recognizes easy access to a correctly positioned and untethered cabin, the details of which require only minor changes.
