Here is what he shares about his project on SZUCHA:
„Architecture is about transformation of space to live and it should be a synthesis of Nature and Culture. The newly designed project at Szucha is an attempt to combine those two elements into life. From the west, we see a „green” wooden-glass structure which is to be covered by natural foliage. On the building’s lower part and the roof of the project, we experience the floating gardens so that one has an impression of nature, upon entering the building.
From the east, the Szucha project is to be shaped by vertical white concrete prefabricated elements; the rhythm and elegance of which should complement the houses in the closest neighborhood.
