I was born and raised in Silesia, Poland, a region of heavy industry - coal mines and steel works, which had a major impact on my architecture and urban planning interest. Living within a degraded environment made me particularly sensitive to ecological problems and the role that architecture plays to help.
Revitalization and rehabilitation in urban matter became one of my interests during my school years, resulting in me having earned my Master’s Degree project in Silesian University of Technology (Gliwice, Poland), that focused on revitalization of city centered areas in Chorzow, Poland, my hometown (2007).
My professional adventure with architecture started with an internship with Frederic Schwartz Architects (FSA), a Manhattan based firm(2007-2008). As a freelancer, I worked with other firms on small scale projects and project design, (Interior Masters Group and Concrete Shop).
Since May 2013 I've been working as a junior architect in D'Apostrophe Design in Tribeca, NYC. I've worked on several high end residential projects ( Washington Street Apartment renovation conducted as a D&B project, East 72 Street Apartment renovation); currently I am working as a job captain and junior architect on full gut townhouse renovations: a 8000 sq ft townhouse project on Charles Street, Greenwich Village NY, and a 4000sq feet townhouse in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn.
