Mikolai Adamus shared with us his design for the Quarter Cultural Center located in Gdansk, Poland. The main idea was to supplement the empty square with tissue which surrounds the site for a more intimate and open expression. More images on the project after the break.

The front of the building was raised in order to maintain the existing communication on the plot As a result, this provided an intimate interior while simultaneously opening up more to the surroundings which accomplished the intentions of the design concept.
