Szotynscy Zaleski

Ever since completing the iconic Krzywy Domek complex in the northern Tricity department of Sopot, architects Szotynscy Zaleski have become synonymous with the more surreal side of Polish building work. The piece, which is now hailed as the most photographed building in the country, is apparently void of any right-angles and was supposedly inspired by the eerie fairy-tale sketches of Jan Marcin Szancer.

Built in 1982-1984 according to designs by award-winning Dutch architect Piet Blom, the Kubuswoningen, or ‘Cube-Houses’, offer an inimitable living experience. These 40 small yellow dwellings, shaped like tilted cubes, are each perched on concrete pillars, giving the impression of architectural ‘trees’ clustering together to make a forest. Blom envisaged the complex as a safe, peaceful community, set apart from the bustling city centre below with each cube comprised of three floors and a panoramic viewing gallery. Down among the ‘tree-trunks’, on street level, shops, a school and a children’s playground are available for residents’ use. Anyone dreaming of living in one of these fascinating houses can see what it is like by visiting the Kijk-Kubus or ‘Show-Cube’.
