More Polish Modern

Polish Modern house, Wroclaw, Poland

New house in an old neighbourhood of Wroclaw, Poland, in the NYT today. Spruce on the outside, particle board on the inside, and the whole thing cost US$80,000 to build. It will fade to grey. This seems equivalent to laneway housing in Vancouver – and memo to Vancouver: modern mixes well with traditional architecture. Take a chance! I just hope they used non-formaldehyde particle board in the interior, because if not that’s a lot of off-gassing. Photos: Olo Rutkowski. See more current Polish architecture here.

    I know that it probably seems really sad, reactionary and counter-productive to the article, but I really like the house behind the building in the first picture.

    I like them both! But I think my ultimate preference is always for the two, together.
