I am a young architect born in Warsaw. The history-context of my home town and Warsaw School of Architecture had influence on my architectural approach which could be described as fusion between functionalism of program, spacious excitement and simplistic esthetics driven from modernist heritage of Warsaw. During my education at TU/e, working experienced in several Dutch offices, creating and living at Strijp-S / heart of Brainport, I got fascinated by new forms collectivism and sustainability. In my architecture I try to combine the best of both countries: Poland and my new home, The Netherlands.

I believe that architecture is powerful tool that can influence human wellbeing, communities and natural environment. Therefore I feel responsible to not follow architectural trends, to listen to people, to solve problems and having contribution in improving our world.
