The base impulse of the projected apartment house on Bazova street in Bratislava is inspirated by Gaudí's architecture, however in larger sense the specific intent is based on the vision of secession and the artistic perception of architecture. Gaudí's La Pedrera in Barcelona wasn't finalized into details according to the concept of the world-known architect. It is this unwieldiness of the building that is fixing attention with it's roughty surfaces and explosion of shapes. This makes the architecture of La Pedrera quite supertemporal. The apartment house on Bazova street is thus a reminder to the work of Gaudí.
Variations for infinity
During the projection of the apartment house on Bazova street, beginning with the first drafts was thought about dynamic sculptural forming of shapes and materials of this building, which includes a unique and racy character, rhythm, implying a story and disrupting the experienced orthogonal lines.
In particular, it's horizontal tremolant line of teracce railings, which ruffles the massif of the whole city block on the crossing of three communication paths gives vibrancy to the building.
The arc railing is suffused only by a simple greyish plaster with fine-grained structure, making a contrast with the archetypal tawny bricking facework of the facade.
„Genius loci“ of the apartment building Gaudí is generated by it's placement in a quiet silent locality of Bratislava, in relation to the adjecent urban park with a massif of height greenth on the northern side. The developement of the building finaly composed the formerly open urban block, the new building is closing it in the U shape. In the inneryard an encased barnyard was created, which will serve as a private yard space for repose for the habitants of the apartment house. Placement of a constructivistic scuplture by Alexander Trizuljak in the centre of the atrium is being considered. This artefact is part of the cycle called Variations for infinity from the years 60th, , which containes a related motive of wave motion.
