DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Crab Houses

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Multifuncional complex

INSPIRATION:
On the vast plain of the Silesian Lowlands, one magical mountain stands alone, covered in fog of mystery and towering over the picturesque town of Sobotka. There, amidst the nature and legendary location, that the Crab Houses complex, a research center for new technologies, is planned to be. This place brings together both scientists and artists. The shape of the pavilions is inspired by the sea crabs entering the rippling sea of grass. They will be illuminated at night resembling fireflies hovering over the town.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The complex of three futuristic pavilions located on the meadows coming up to the summit of Wiezyca is intended to be a link between the urban tissue and the natural environment. The Crab Houses will include a research lab - a workshop and two residential buildings. The complex is meant to bring together inhabitants of Sobotka and creative people, giving them a chance to revitalize the town. Innovative materials and technologies such as recuperators, heat pumps or photovoltaic cells are going to be used for its construction.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The Crab Houses are to become a place of creative action, a meeting place for scientists, artists and residents of Sobotka, as well as a venue for creative workshops for children and young people. Guests will be able to stay in the houses on the hill and share their passions with the inhabitants of the region. This will be the entrance into the 21st century combining innovation with the picturesque landscape of the area of Sobotka.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in December 2016 in Wrocław and finished in March 2017 in Wroclaw. Location: Sobotka, Silesia, Poland

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The Crab Houses complex has been designed to be built in laminated timber and steel. The coatings are planned to be made of panels of transparent glass fiber laminate to be manufactured in the CNC center. Platforms made of timber and locally sourced stone will lead to the buildings located on the slope.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Research lab – 16,50m (length) x 14,40 (width) x 3,1-7,3m (height) Residential building – 13,75m (length x 12,00 (width) x 2,6-6,10m (height)

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The project is a search for a new interpretation of a home while preserving its spiritual dimension as well as the interaction of a laboratory object that is to be the research field of these activities, both in terms of technology and creative work. The Crab Houses will get closer to nature through the organic form, and at the same time seek out the answer to how modern high technology will fit in the traditional environment and what added value it may bring.

CHALLENGE:
So far, the location has been difficult because the construction of modern facilities has been planned in an area of historical development. Other challenges are still ahead of us such as legal issues or the reception by the community for which such an implementation may be their first contact with modern, abstract architecture - is it going to gain acceptance and are the inhabitants going to see the chance to change and revitalize the town? Will they participate in the construction and the activities? We have good reasons to believe that the answer is going to be yes.
