This development of 61 houses and apartments sits in the grounds of the Kastiel Bernolákovo, near Bratislava, Slovakia, a grand baroque manor house built in the 1720s for the Esterhazy family by the leading architect of the day, Johann Bernard Fischer von Erlach.
Industrial workshops, sheds and factories were added to the estate in the twentieth century. The project proses to demolish most of these and create a small new residential community in their place. Two of the largest factory buildings will be retained and become apartment buildings.
The client, a group of former architects, shares with Ash Sakula a mutual aspiration to create a socially sustainable neighbourhood with an imaginative mix of uses and convivial shared spaces.
