Rebel One / WWAA

The first building to be designed and developed as a part of the complex is rebel one. It is one of two architectural dominants planned in the project that are of a compact plan with 12 superstructures located at the shorter sides of the main alley. Rebel one elevations, the outpost of the new investments in the soho area, refer to the architectural motives of industrial relicts of kamionek.

The character of the front elevation could suggest that the building was not adapted for living purposes, at the same time changing the perception of the whole development. The brick itself used as a finishing of elevations is an extremely traditional material. However, when used with new technologies, materials and motives it takes on a new light.

Grey and dark colouring of external walls was contrasted with intense colour of the main internal walls and ceilings finished with a coarse-grained plaster. To maintain the proportions of the building and allow the maximum view, the balustrades of the loggia are made of glass.

Relatively large french windows afford a lot of natural light and a panoramic view across a quite extensive part of south praga and even left bank of the vistula river. Openwork elements of the elevation visible from the inside form a specific connection with the surrounding, partly determine the character of the flat and evoke the uniqueness of the neighbourhood.
