Gdansk Group Trip – Day 4 (The Crooked House in Sopot)


On the main street of Sopot is the Crooked House (Krzywy Domek) which is occupied by Costa and is part of the Rezydent shopping centre. It was constructed between 2003 and 2004, designed by architects Szotyński and Zaleski.


Unfortunately, the trees in front make it a little difficult to photograph, but this gives a sufficient indication of the building’s quirkiness. The architects were inspired by the Polish artist Jan Marcin Szancer and the poet Per Dahlberg, with the whole arrangement being something of a tourist attraction in its own right.

Steve took this image, which is rather better than mine…..
