Mostostal Warszawa built electryfing apartments in Krakow
In the Kazimierz district in Krakow, there can be found exceptional apartments. Mostostal Warszawa completed the construction of the luxury apartments situated in the one-hundred-year old walls of a power plant. The post-industrial building at Wawrzyńca Street houses 89 apartments of an area up to 140 m2. For the project realisation worth over PLN 30 million was responsible Southern Division of Mostostal Warszawa headed by Janusz Stanaszek.
Kazimierz is one of the most prestigious districts of the city. Its magical atmosphere noted the Haven company and decided to execute there a unique residential project at Wawrzyńca Street 19. These old walls of the former power station from 1914 are covered by the legal conservation protection as a listed historical building. This is where has been established a modern complex of apartments. The project was brought to fruition by Southern Division of Mostostal Warszawa headed by Janusz Stanaszek.
Apart from a typical scope of work including e.g. water and sewage system, central heating, air conditing system, electric and teletechnical system), construction of an underground garage, retail area, Mostostal Warszawa turned post-industrial machine rooms into a residence along with renovating historic elements. Residents are going to live in bright, well laid-out, in some cases multi-level apartments. Most of them have access to balconies, terraces or loggias. The ground floor will be available for office and retail businesses. Turbine room, machine room, switching and control stations were transformed into modern and bright rooms.
The architectonical design needed to comply with the requirements of the conservatory office. The original building and such elements as coal-fired boilers, brick façade and old crane were restored. On the ground floor in the commercial area is also situated the Atrium arranged in such a manner to restore the historic character of this place. The most valuable decorative element is a 100-year-old crane with gantry rails. Brick facades give unique character to the interior and constitute an original design element as well as resemble the industrial roots of the building.
"It is uncommon to renovate so old buildings as this one. Considering the costs, it would be cheaper to demolish it and build the new one from the scratch. Contrary to the modern trends, a developer from New York, decided to invest in the revitalisation of this former plant. which once used to provide power for inhabitants of the Krakow. We built exclusive apartments there. The history of this place will be liveable once again. Certainly, it is one of the most interesting projects that we have recently executed" – says Artur Sikora, Contract Director of the construction of Apartamenty Wawrzyńca 19.
