The Powisle district in Warsaw, located between the city centre and the Vistula bank, is exceptionally attractive to investors. Development along these streets was to a large extent demolished during the war, and complemented by freestanding buildings in the 1960s. However, there still remain many vacant areas, which are now being developed and transformed. The architects from APAKA inserted two buildings in the middle of an area of two-and-a-half hectares, built up irregularly and at various angles. The new housing is characterized by a perfect balance between originality and conformity. The first one, along Wilanowska Street, combines the features of a tenement and a freestanding block, and thus introduces some order into the surrounding development. The other housing block is hidden inside the estate. The new buildings are connected by an underground garage. Large apartments, many of over 100 sq.m., have views to all sides through port-fenetres (text from Architektura-Murator).
