The jury awarded the prize for:
skillful shaping of the body of the building with balanced proportions and size, which with its form fits exemplarily into the context of existing buildings. Restrained and elegant architecture is the result of consistent design decisions: logical disposition and clear solutions of functions, simplicity and economy of forms, and properly applied construction. The proposed spatial solutions promote good relations and a homely atmosphere for all users of the hospice - that is: residents, staff and visitors. The choice of materials, their colors and thoughtful detailing create a lasting elegance resistant to ever-faster changing fashions.
Second place went to the 22ARCHITEKCI studio team consisting of: Wojciech Conder, Aleksander Drzewiecki, Maciej Kowalczyk, Michał Tatjewski, Aleksandra Zubelewicz-Ladain cooperation with Katarzyna Kłaczek, Agnieszka Turczyńska, Karol Ryska and Oskar Kozaczewski.
2nd prize, proj.: 22ARCHITEKCI
The project was awarded for:
coherent architectural and urbanvision and proper scale of the building in the surrounding buildings and greenery. Rationally resolved function around two patios creates an interior that is a kind of "soul" of the building, with a positive psychological effect. The apt and limited selection of materials, their nobility and consistent use, result in an architecture that is sincere and elegant in its simplicity.
Third place went to the team of Roland Kwaśny studio, consisting of: Zbigniew Kowalewski, Roland Kwaśny, Andrzej Kwieciński, Magdalena Grabarczyk, Paweł Brabarczyk, Krzysztof Kulawczyk, Jolanta Lelątko, Małgorzata Ryterska, Anna Włodarczyk, Tomasz Zalewski and Agnieszka Żydecka-Bąk.
