Working in APA Wojciechowski since 1999 roku

I have been working for APA since ever. I withstand here for so long probably because I have done a lot of interesting and different things all this time, surrounded by cool, smart people and a cat. My real architectural adventure started with a rusty nail which I had to remove from my foot at BLUE CITY construction site. Since then, it became clear that my talent towards conceptual design was way much better than inventory skills. Unfortunately, the work did not bring desired results for a long time, except façade of the ARKOŃSKA project. MAXIMUS (now Ptak Center) turned out to be a breakthrough project, where just a few people believed in the final result to be consistent with the original design. Design process of the façade made of metal sheets placed along the folds and the time spent on the construction site was a great experience for me. Multi-boxes facade design of another commercial facility FACTORY ANNOPOL brings wonderful memories too.  

Even if I didn’t change in time – everything else did. I started to deal with large scale spatial and functional arrangements like ALCHEMIA, just from scratch. Even though the project has evolved a lot for last decade, some marks of my work are still noticeable. In the meantime, I designed facade of EQUATOR IV, where the final effect of chiaroscuro along with perspective distortion works really well.

Everything was as usual and suddenly BOOM! – PRAGA 306 project appeared, the Borkowski Brothers former factory. The building complex is partially under supervision of conservator. I became the project leader for the first time. During ongoing project, APA Wojciechowski management decided to purchase one of the buildings (from KAMIONKOWSKA street side) and adapt it for an architectural office. The project was a real challenge, but in the end I managed to create “home” for 120 architects. Surprisingly, after all I am still alive, life is great, however I had to accept recurring thoughts of the staircase design. What’s next? I hope taste of the future is to be as sweet as chocolate from WEDEL store, which I recently designed. This note is about my achievements, but it is really OUR team achievements.

Moreover.. I speak languages, know software, I have been here and there, have interests but have no time for dance.
