Architecture of Perception.
Never before have we created such kind of arcihtecture! I call this project Architecture of Perception, which changes design style according to perspective. Top floor of tenement seen from Dębnicki Bridge will have gothic character, from Vistula’s embankments it reminds renaissance arcades, however from Powiśle Street level top floor softens – reminiscences baroque ornamens. In this manner we acquired new, dynamic form defined by human’s eye perception.
New, modern form emerges, which grows out of history and tradition. The division of the structure originates from the lower floors and the lines of the windows flow smoothly into the coffered wooden ceiling. Through a soft, slightly deviating line, which refers to the structures of Gothic and Krakow domes, we obtain a beautiful covering of the gable walls of neighboring tenement houses, while minimizing the scale and height of the building seen from the Powiśle Street.
Moreover, the construction of our structure gains innovative, extraordinary dynamics. Observing this object from a perspective, the building has a distinctly Gothic character, with soaring lines, while from close up it resembles Renaissance arcades, even closer it turns into soft forms – reminiscence of Baroque ornaments. Thus, we obtained a new, dynamic form defined by the perception of the human eye in various ways, depending on the perspective.
