SEE YOU THERE 😉
The church we came by during our trip to Slovakia – Located in southern Poland on polish and Slovakian border.
We discovered this amazing structure accidentally, but as it later transpired it was one of the most valued historic, timber log structure churches in Poland – it was suggested to list the church in UNESCO world heritage classification, unfortunately the application was unsuccessful.
The temple was constructed in 18t century and named after St .John the Baptist. It has the most fascinating timber log construction with a single nave and a very precious, rich wall paintings .
It is simply breath taking experience to enter the building, see its mystic light coming through the windows with a stained glass and entirely timber internal finish. The duo pitched roof, the spire at front with four other little spires at each corner of the front tower and most of the walls are covered with wooden shingles.
The church has a very decorative panel ceiling with interesting and picturesque paintings showing the scenes from St John the Baptist’s live and other bible motives.
No doubt we can call it one of the most precious jewel of polish historic timber architecture.
Let me share my thougts about another high end, residential building today.
This is second building which I was working on, recently. Even more expensive, still on the market, but we all hope it is not going to last long. The design is repeatedly traditional, with classical proportions, but the quality of finishes is astonishing.
The building complies with the Code for sustainable homes requirements, is very eco friendly and comes up to all contemporary, high standards – recently we have overheard that some famous london footballer had and interest in a purchase of this property.
The house consists of 6 or 7 bedrooms with a separate en-suite bathrooms, lounge, kitchen, morning room, utility, spacious hall with impressive stairs, home office/study, disabled bathroom at ground floor level, double garage,cinema room, play room and what’s most important – the swimming pool.
Sounds like a house for a people from Beverly Hills? might be actually even better- it is more classy 😉
Finally I can show off and present another of the jobs I was involved in.
This is just a small sample what we do in our office – the is building located in the suburbs of London, Radlett, in a vicinity of another high end residential buildings.Generally very, very reach area.
The location and also the client’s requirement decided of a character of the building. We have proposed a very traditional building, with the pithed tiled roof, traditional pitched roof dormers, cast stone external finishes.Really masive bulk, very neat finish and with its own, one of a kind, unusual character.
Located on a large site, especially rear garden is of an impressive size, on which you could probably play a cricket match – If you were wealthy enough to buy it all together and could still effort to ruin the lawn.
The intrnal arrangement is sufficiently spacious to get lost, but I can garantee, you wouldn’t be bored looking for a way out, as the building has a lot of aesthetical surprices.
First class floor finishes, high ceilings with a lovely lighting fittings, as well as a grand stairs with the cast iron balustrades.

This is definitely on of the most interesting residential development I have been involved in .
There are three blocks, comprising about 130 apartments, some of them duplexes, with a very narrow atriums beetween them an many balconies sticking out of the building, cladded with timber .
Presented buildings are liners with decks runing along the length of the buildings, the entrances to the apartments form a courtyard and with the external lifts linking the decks at the ends of the buildings.
Block of flats built along Woodside Avenue in North Finchley in London.Iteresting building that draws the attention thanks to its contemporary design and a fresh look in between the surrounding detached houses from different periods.
Use of brick is still very characteristic for this area of London, but big aluminium windows with a very asymetric subdivisions, and a very contemporary flat roofs are really standing out – very surprising especially for me dealing with the planning councill for the area.
I often pass by this intriguing building and though it would be worth to share it with other people – will you agree with my point of view ?
Although the garden itself is not reach in many different plant species, it is very interesting as a place of relaxation,with variety of offical avenues, full of landscape architecture, monuments, sculptures and romantic arbours.
Full o fountains and with the Round Pound -popular artificial lake in the west corner of Hide Park , packed with swans and other wild living birds.
The Park was designed in c.1728-1738 by Henry Wise and Charles Bridgeman.The same Charles Bridgeman designed a Serpentine; a lake lying in the center of the Hyde Park and ending up in the Kensington Gardens that is called “The lond Water”
Very interesting part of the Kensington Garden is so called “Italian Garden” with a number of classical sculptures and fountains.
The place definitely worth of seeing and a time spent on exploring the Park will be definitely enjoyable and amusing thanks to its charm and an amizingly royal character.
