Architecture with Physique

By
Szotyńscy & Zaleski Architekci

 
 Let's recall the unusual architectural constructs created by photo manipulation expert Michael Jantzen and think you know better than to believe that such wacky, funhouse-like structures actually exist in this world, but think again. Krzywy Domek, translated as Crooked House, is a shopping center in Sopot, Poland that curves and slants with realistic approaches! There's no photo editing tools used to depict this unconventionally structured edifice.







The multipurpose building boasts a unique look that was inspired by the fairy tale illustrations of Jan Marcin Szancer and Per Dahlberg. Like Jantzen's imagined works, this venue has a cartoonish appeal. It looks like an animated house, bouncing in place to a jolly tune. There's a jovial liveliness to the place that seems very inviting. How could a family not be drawn to the welcoming Crooked House?






The Krzywy Domek was built in 2004. It is approximately 4,000 square meters in size and is part of the Rezydent shopping center.





 
It was designed by Szotyńscy & Zaleski who were inspired by the fairytale illustrations and drawings of Jan Marcin Szancer and Per Dahlberg. It can be entered from either Monte Cassino or Morska Streets.
