I am an architect with a passion for design. I trained at The Silesian University of Technology in Poland 1992-1998, graduating with a Diploma in Architecture and Town Planning and at The Bartlett School of Architecture in London 2000-20001 reading MSc Urban Design.
I have over fourteen years of professional experience in architecture. I am a registered architect in the UK (ARB no: 074443C; RIBA no: 20000061) and in Poland (IARPno: MP-1412).
With nearly 14 years of experience in design and construction, I had the opportunity to address and develop nearly all facets of domestic high end and luxury architecture. My approach will always start with a client's requirements and developing an intricate 3 dimensional world via pencil perspectives, pushing the boundaries and exploring the possibilities in an immediate and easily readable format. Providing flexibility and diversity in the design process where modern computer formats may take weeks to reach such a level of expression and presentation.
I come from a diverse background of disciplines, and I am well versed in many aspects of science and the Arts.My work to date ranges from luxury penthouse apartments, grade 1 Listed Castles to public commissions.
I work with a holistic approach and as a result my analysis, research and design work are all of a consistently high standard. I am highly motivated and committed to developing and producing the best design possible. I am an architect who is always open to experimentation, who pushes the boundaries of design and who believes that any vision can become the reality. I am ambitious and innovative.
Having worked with RDA Architects in London for almost three years I gained experience in contemporary style architecture both in residential and commercial projects. After this time I decided to increase my knowledge regarding classical architecture.
Hence worked at Christopher Smallwood Architects in London for over six years, where I was involved in numerous residential and commercial projects in London, the countryside and abroad (Ireland, Greece, Barbados, USA and South Africa) adding to my experience a broad knowledge in the conservation of historic buildings and in classical architecture, designing alterations to complement the detailing of original structures with craftsman-based bespoke design.
Just over four years ago I set up a practice Quixotic Architecture, where I have been involved on numerous residential and commercial projects internationally. I approached each project in a way that respects and enhances the existing architecture and landscape offering an opportunity to fully develop any potential within the property. Each case required an analysis of the clients demands and careful study of the nature to produce a design of quality in terms of the architecture, landscape and local vernacular with a close eye on sustainability.
I am always searching possibilities for a new challenge therefore please do not hesitate to contact me.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Quixotic Architecture, Pag, HR / Brighton, GB, Architect, Proprietor
Quixotic Architecture founded in 2009 in Brighton in the UK works internationally providing architecture, urban design and also interior and furniture design experimenting with the Arts & Sciences.
The practice works internationally providing architecture, urban design and also interior and furniture design for both the public and private sectors. The design work is based upon a solid foundation of detailed analysis of the clients requirements and the particular nature of the site to produce a design of quality in terms of the architecture, landscape and local vernacular. What distinguishes Quixotic Architecture most particularly from other architectural practices is the scope and depth of cultural input within our projects. We are extremely well informed not only on matters directly concerning design but more generally in terms of literature, theatre, film, philosophy, music, ballet, opera, contemporary dance and sciences such as engineering, physics and mathematics. We love to demonstrate not only our considerable erudition in these diverse fields but also, more importantly, our ability to make use of this knowledge in an original and creative way. We believe that with today’s advancing technologies there should be no limit to materialise any quixotic ideas.
