Angel City is a part of the substantial urban regeneration surrounding the historic train station of Krakow. Composed predominantly of small studio apartments, the development is decidedly urban in nature. It covers two blocks, and responds to the dynamic proportions of the site. Constructed in red brick, the external surfaces of the building are perforated by a profusion of openings, curtain walls, terraces and wooden panels. The central garden has been raised to the first floor, enabling an extensive retail area on the street level and a greater sense of privacy for the residential apartments above. In our choices of materiality, scale and proportions, our aim was to offer a contemporary variant upon the surrounding buildings and that the newly constructed buildings will help to complete the surrounding urban fiber while remaining distinct in its architecture.
