WSM Koło II Housing Estate

The WSM Koło II housing estate was designed by Helena and Szymon Surkus. It was built shortly before the socialist realism became the required architecture style in communist Poland.

It’s an area of thirty apartment buildings surrounded by gardens and full of surprising details. People living here feel like they live in a park or even the countryside.

WSM Koło II was criticized by communist authorities for its avant-garde forms. As a consequence Szymon Syrkus condemned his whole previous work in an official statement. Nowadays the whole complex is protected as an outstanding example of Polish post-war modernism.

Address: between streets: Ożarowska, Deotymy, Czorsztyńska, Rawska
