SARP Award of the Year for Microtenement House – Best Single-Family Building in Poland 2023.
The SARP Award of the Year is given by The Association of Polish Architects for a building or a group of buildings constructed and completed in the previous calendar year, 2022, on the territory of the Republic of Poland, showcasing significant architectural values.
The SARP Award of the Year is one of the most prestigious architectural awards in Poland.
During the ceremony held at the Zamoyski Palace in Warsaw on May 12, 2023, architectural awards were presented for the best projects realized in Poland in 2022. In the Single-Family Residential category, the Micro Tenement House, designed by BXB Studio Bogusław Barnaś, was awarded the prize.
The Jury’s justification reads:
The award was given for excellent use of a difficult and narrow plot proving that a limited building footprint is not an obstacle to creating attractive architecture. A special feature of this building is its flexibility and variability of space, as well as its intelligent functional layout with the ability to adapt to the needs of users. Despite its small scale, the building can adapt to several different functional variants with very little interference in the building structure. Noteworthy is the dynamic, innovative façade highlighted by minimalist detailing and surprising chiaroscuro. A characteristic element of the façade is the very carefully and innovatively laid bricks that define the street frontage.
