Studio

We founded the studio in 2016 after completing the construction of a house in Nowa Górka, which received a distinction in the SARP Main Award in 2016. The subsequent house designs we deal with are a continuation of our interests related to housing and its various forms. We are currently expanding our interest to include a larger scale of multi-family residential buildings. At the same time, we continue our previous experience by participating in competitions for the current yearpublic projects that received recognition and awards.

Existing objects, often of historical significance, are also the subject of our interests. We restore historic buildings to life, giving them new functions, both by transforming them into public and residential buildings. We believe that through our activities with monuments, we learn how to combine new substance with existing buildings, both individually and on a broader urban scale.

 

Our studio is located in the center of Poznań. For years, we have been trying to get involved in the local community and in the Poznań branch of the Association of Polish Architects and the Greater Poland Chamber of Architects. Our activity is not only related to the local market, we work on buildings throughout the country and abroad.

 

We are a family studio run by Katarzyna Osipowicz-Grabowska and Piotr Grabowski.

How do we work

The starting point in our projects is the relationship of the recipient with the environment - a person with a building and the surrounding environment. The key to our approach to design is to skillfully understand the client's needs and translate them into the way the building operates. We try to focus not only on solving spatial problems. Understanding the place, the existing tissue, the program and the budget allows us to create new opportunities and discover the potential and add new values to a given place.

All our projects are the result of teamwork. We believe that strong cooperation based on trust and understanding both with our clients and industry specialists and consultants is the basis for creating good architecture.

In times when the approach and greater awareness of the environment and demographic changes are changing, our projects are created consciously based on the most possible and rational technical solutions, so that the buildings we design are durable and allow for adaptation to other purposes in the future.

All the projects we deal with are very individualual. In each case, we try not to repeat previously acquired patterns. Before establishing the studio, we gained experience working in renowned Polish architectural studios, on significant projects in Poland and abroad.

Both Katarzyna (since 2019) and Piotr (since 2020) teach design classes at the Faculty of Architecture of the Poznań University of Technology. Teaching builds a more reflective and analytical attitude, thanks to which professional experiences are complemented with a more meaningful approach to one's own projects
