Sometimes all it takes is a small gesture in a space to make it more attractive to users. Thoughtful solutions and tidying up an existing space can work wonders! This is how architects from the Maćków Pracownia Projektowa office took care of their backyard, creating a wooden Neighborhood Terrace, a place where you can relax and spend time together. A similar procedure, but with a completely different function, was used by architects from Atelier Starzak Strebicki, designing a Multifunctional Gazebo in one of the city's backyards.

Architects from the Poznań studio have to their credit several realizations of small interventions in public space, often temporary, which precisely through small gestures, the introduction of thoughtful solutions and urban furniture have put the place in order, creating a space that encourages spending time there and interaction between users (examples of such actions by the Atelier Starzak Strebicki team can be found in Poznań and Gdynia, among others).

This year, in the courtyard between Poznań tenements, another small realization of the studio was created - a gazebo designed to cover the bicycle parking lot and cover the waste bins.

An important aspect when designing the body of the building was to integrate it into the intimate and green courtyard, taking care to preserve as much space as possible available to residents and to respect the growing plants, the designers explain.

The lump of the gazebo and the area on which it stands have a shape similar to a trapezoid. Such a solution makes the wider part of the building, roofing the bicycle storage area, higher and more open, while the part for waste is lower.

The object is enclosed on the street side by the plot's fence, and on the other side - facing the courtyard - by a multi-level seat, small stands that can serve as a playground (the lowest level accommodates toy boxes).

The structure of the block is made of steel elements supporting openwork walls made of vertically arranged larch planks, while the roof is covered with two types of tiles - ceramic and transparent - so that natural light entering the gazebo creates an atmospheric play with shadow.
