Gansberg district in Koliba is an exclusive residential complex formed by three residential villas stretching across the south-eastern slopes with panoramic views of Bratislava. Horizontally divided floors emphasized by freely shaped terraces and balconies copy the irregular geomorphological shape of the terrain and its contours. The entire complex is thus organically incorporated into the Koliba slope and creates various configurations of views of the city and of the hill, the patios and the surrounding villas. This creates a quite variable topography of views, but also of floor plans with terraces integrated into the terrain, in loggias, and in semi-open and roof terraces. The horizontal division is supported by the vertical structure of façades which underline the linear dynamics of the variability of full-glass window apertures and grey-and-white vertical stripes of decorated structured plaster resembling a forest parterre. In addition to the proximity of the Carpathian countryside and forest, the complexity of access roads and small urban scale also represents a specific feature of the villa district in Koliba. But it is this exceptionally advantageous location near a main road and good road connections, together with contact with nature and exclusive views of the city, that turn Gansberg into a phenomenal place connecting its location, exclusivity and relaxation. Overhanging cornices which help maintain the intimacy between floors and also the differentiation of configurations of individual floors and apartment floor plans put the finishing touches to large apartment spaces predestined precisely for such type of housing. Owners could choose the architectural design of railings, loggias and terraces of their villa. The buildings´ terrain configuration is supported by the architecture of the greenery integrated into loggias and terraces through built-in wooden flower pots which also function as exterior air-conditioning units. The extended horizontal cornices also function as natural sunshades of large-sized window apertures. Gansberg is a residential complex for demanding citizens of the successful city of Bratislava who may watch a beautiful panorama of the city and a strong skyline of the countryside from one exceptional place for life in modern residential architecture.
