Cultural houses (Dom kultury) with goats grazing outside? That’s a reality. When architects Natalia Paszkowska and Marcin Mostafa from the WWAA Studio finished building this eco building in the middle of the Służew tenement housing – with a vegetable grden, windmill and space to raise farm animals – we weren’t sure if it would work out. But, it has! Kids are taking care of the tomato bushes and also learning how to live a sustainable lifestyle.
The architect references rural environments recalling those which survived in the region around Warsaw up until halfway through the 20th century.
There’s a working cafe here, you can chill on the grass in the neighboring park or play on the wooden structures in the playground or climb the climbing wall.
