Łepkowski House is an iconic pre-war villa inspired by Le Corbusier. It was constructed in 1933-1934 according to the design of Lucjan Korngold and Piotr Łubiński. It`s located in Saska Kępa neighborhood. It`s a true paradise for modernist architecture fans.
The villa was built for a director of Chevrolet car dealership company based in Warsaw. It`s a minimalistic cubic house with a terrace and spiral staircase in the garden. This simple but beautifuly designed element is what makes this house so iconic.
In 2017 this remarkable example of Polish avant-garde architecture was added to the register of protected Polish monuments. For several years it housed Biała restaurant. It belonged to a group of friends who have been running few succesful bars and clubs in Warsaw. They restored the building with respect to its original design. Unfortunatly because of Covid-19 the business went down and the restaurant had to close. However it`s worth visiting, you can still see the garden side of the house. The whole neighborhood is full of buildings designed by the best Polish architects of the 1930s.
