a normal office in Poland
Gdynia is one of the few modernistic cities built after the Second World War in
the communist Poland. In a short period of time, Gdynia changed from a village
by the sea to a well developed city and is still a popular destination for new
investment. A plot next to the main road in Gdynia seemed to be the evident location for a design of an office building with a good communication connections
and a business-type context. but isn’t it a trap?

During the process of design, the concept changed a lot due to reaching the optimal size and
shape of the project to fit in the surrounding of single-family houses. the combination of two,
informal backyard space and high-quality office, was my main concern. The final design includes
a four-storey office and a small pavilion with a cafe bar that can be run independently by separating functions. The north part of the complex is more representative and looks appealing and
professional. The highlighted sharp corner of the office is distinguished and easily discernible
from the road. The composition of the buildings, the way they correspond to each other helps to
create a welcoming square and a narrow pass between the buildings. The pass leads to the back
of the complex which is aimed mainly at the office workers taking a break..

THE mERCHANT CITY THESIS

MAGIC?. THREE FACTORS

layers- get prepared to see some magic!!

the building scale

Spaces. Old, abandoned, forgotten,
they all have a story to tell. you
can read it from the smell of
the air, the murmur of voices,
the shapes of shadows. It is like
energy passing through your body,
which adds new value to your
perception of the space.

a performace with a close-magician aloys helped me to answer
these questions:::
How quickly we can get prepared
to experience magic ?
How quickly we can switch the
mode from normal into unusual?

During the research I met a lot
of interesiting people related to
magic. They talked about their
personal ap-proach to needs magicians have today.
John Archer - a stage magician, a comedian
Aloys Vadon - a French close-up magician
kind people from the magic shop
Judith from Britannia Panopticon
Jim - a magician into history of magic
Chris Derosa - an illusionist

concept
A small internal architecture office in sopot, loft Magdalena adamus, was invited to
take part in the competition for a cafe next to the gallery space in katara village in
doha, qatar. THE MAIN TARGET WAS TO CREATE AN EUROPEAN STYLE CAFE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE
FAR EAST ARCHITECTURE, avoiding STRONG ORIENTAL INFUANCES.
THE PROPOSED CONCEPT SUGGESTED partitioning GIVEN SPACE INTO A CAKE DISPLAY ROOM, A
CAFE AND A SHOP. THE CAFE SPACE WAS ADDITIONALY PARTED BY THE FRENCH WINDOWS MADE
OF BLACK, HEAVY STEEL. THE WOODEN FLOOR AND DIVERSITY OF TABLES AND LAMPS GAVE A
NICE, COSY EFFECT. THE DISPLAY ROOM, AS WELL AS A SHOP, WERE MORE MODERATE IN THEIR
EXPRESSION AND REPRESENTED THE MINIMALISTIC APPROACH IN EUROPEAN INTERNAL DESIGN
COMBINED WITH THE DELICATE ‘ENGLISH COUNTRYSIDE’ STYLE INFUENCEs.
THE CONCEPT WON THE COMPETITION AND AFTER WORKSHOPS IN POLAND WITH THE REPRESENTATIVES FROM QATAR in january 2014 THE DESIGN IS DUE TO COME INTO BEING.

my duties
DURING THE PROCCES OF DESIGN I WAS FULLY ARRANGED IN EVERY PART
OF IT. I MAINLY WORKed IN CO-OPERATION WITH HANNA BIALIC, AN INTERIOR ARCHITECT FROM LOFT, AND I WAS SUPERVISED BY MAGDALENA
ADAMUS AND ANNA CYBULSKA, AN OFFICE MANAGER.
MY DUTIES FOCUSED ON:
- CREATING THE concept AND it’s PLAN layout
- LOOKING FOR A RIGHT ‘ATMOSPHERE’ AND STYLE
- CREATING moodboards
- choosing materials/ furniture
- CREATING visualisations
REFERENCE ON DEMAND.
