| Location: Krakow | Category: New build – Residential | Size: 30,000SQM | Status: Completed 2007 | Awards: Winner of the CCE Residential Award
This luxury residential development is located close to the historic center of Krakow. Angel Plaza is typified by the contrast in its restrained street facade and the openness of garden facing aspects. Most of the apartments face south and enjoy views of the historic castle of Wawel. This project introduced a new residential type to Krakow; the luxury inner city residence with underground parking, generous lobbies, health spa and expansive gardens. Like many other projects currently being developed in the emerging Eastern Europe, an economy of means is required; the use of simple materials and an awareness of construction costs is critical for the success of the development. It is a game of subtle counterpoints, of choosing where to invest in detailing and materiality and where to opt for restrain.
