The ASW Architekci design studio, established in 2005 by architects Michał Ankiersztajn, Dariusz Stankiewicz and Jarosław Wroński, are responsible for the design of the hotel. The task was a difficult one due to the considerable cubage and demanding location, that the historical district of Cracow undoubtedly is. The plot was bigger than those usually occupied by single tenement houses, and the urban planning premises were clear: imitate the frontage typical for the quarter.
How was this accomplished? The façade is formed by two subtly-designed multi-storey structures. A seemingly two-storey passage invites inside the building, which has an attractive atrium and an internal courtyard. The size of the building required creating a façade which, despite being very regular in design, would have a private character.
