The "Under the Owls" Kamienica in Praga district is under restoration and redevelopment. The building foundation was reinforced a couple of years ago and the ground floor was renovated. They have now commenced rebuilding the roof where an additional floor will be added, exterior work and final renovations to the interior where there will be new residential units:

The restoration and modernization of the Museum of the History of Warsaw continues. The museum includes 8 kamienice (townhouses) on the Dekert side of the old town market from numbers 28-42 inclusive and 3 on Nowomiejska Street (4,6 and 8).

Recent pics and some older but interesting ones

Dekert side



















original ceiling polychromies













installation of new building systems





























original main floor vaulting

As a little kid I use to walk to my grandparents house on Piekna and Mokotowska. My parents and grandparents were married at the church of Trzech Krzyży.

Urbanista1 back in the day you promised me you'd catalogue Mokotowska renovations for me.

I'm here to collect the debt

Atrium my friend I will repay with interest but I am waiting for a long awaited restoration to commence near Plac Trzech Krzyzy at the end of Mokotowska. It's to horrible in its present condition to post here, but I will

The church of Trzech Krzyzy, I guess you mean Saint Alexander's? I am assuming you no longer live in Warsaw.

current:



pre-war

Wola still has much beauty to add to the fibre of Warszawa My Toronto-Warsaw flight is booked and I'm there at the beginning of October. Got a decent sized list of renovations and new developments to check out Wish I knew how to actually operate a DSLR and tripod even on a semi-professional level

how exciting you're going to Warsaw.

As for the DSLR, just stick to auto or use manual (aperture or shutter-priority) adjusting for exposure. I avoid most of the bells and whistles on the new DSLR's unless there is a specific effect that might enhance a photo.

Renovation of Poznanska 37 continues





This corner infill is not a reconstruction per se but a reconstruction of the urban fabric where corners play such an important role in weaving streets together. The building that once stood here is gone, destroyed during Warsaw's planned destruction. However, the new build is good and of a high density and mass that will make this corner stand out and really bring more people in the area.









Europejski Hotel













Redevelopment of EC Powisle (former power plant) continues





older pics - work has been ongoing for a couple years, cleaning and preparing the site, preparations for restoration works to the original buildings etc

older pics

























big thanks to Bastian, pawel.guraj and Fredi
