While designing new structures in urban conservation areas, one should: respect the context of a place, the character of a building resulting from the urban analysis and a variety of existing urban and historical themes and details. One example of these issues is the newly established facility in Krakow at 4 Smolensk Street. It is the next stage of the expansion of the Holy Padre Pio’s Work Foundation and it will be open for public use. The building is located in a conservation area of the city. Processes: the design and realization of the investment were subordinated to the aforementioned criteria, but in a manner congruent with contemporary design and technological solutions.
