ABOUT US

There is surely no branch of human activity more fascinating than „the creation of the world”, and in this field more ubiquitous than architecture. This is the activity we are trying to conduct together with our customers for, as we suppose, mutual satisfaction and the good of the users.

The philosophy of our activity is the synthesis of customer and user needs as well as the spirit of the place, understood not only in a physical context but also cultural, in the full meaning of this word.

The leading idea of our activity is an individual approach to our customers, based on partnership, and the greatest satisfaction for us is the fact of constant cooperation with those who decided to work with us.

We give a lot of attention to the individual approach in each project, emphasizing the connection of high class architectural and technical quality of the building, the honestly prepared design documentation, and completions of realization in the agreed time and within the settled budget.

The essential part of our studio work are research projects and conceptual designs, helping our customers to prepare and optimize the idea of their future investment. We always try to make the result of our work an element edifying the picture of our clients.

Our independent activity began in 1995 together with the establishment of B2Studio
by architects: Józef Białasik and Witold Bolek.

The achievements of the office include several dozen completed buildings and facilities with various functions, amongst them are: housing and office buildings, hotels, industrial and commercial objects as well as public facilities.
The design team of our office consists of approximately 40 architects grouped in specialist divisions, each being responsible for particular stages of the investment process. Additionally, the Office has a permanent group of co-operative firms and designers, experts and technical advisers.

The office is fully computerized and has a professional technical infrastructure essential for preparing technical documentation and graphic materials. At work we use advanced software, which helps the designing process, like: CAD type programs, e.g. Autodesk Architectural Desktop, CadKon, 3D Studio, Adobe Photoshop and other.

OUR OFFER

We deal in designing multiple kinds of objects and complexes with various functions: housings, hotels, offices, commercial and public facilities, as well as industrial ones.

We also prepare town-planning and study projects. The achievements of our firm also include co-ordination of multi-role investment undertakings in cooperation with other architects. We offer presentations of our projects in the form of 3 dimensional visualizations and computer animations.

Besides designing experience we also have a lot of practice in the process of preparing investments. We are also a consultant on the stage of searching for a suitable piece of land for the investment and also prepare the investment program. We prepare studies of land absorptiveness, and also professional offers for property sale. We represent the investor before administrative offices obtaining all administrative decisions on his behalf (as well as opinions, co-ordinations etc.) serving the realization of the investment, in particular: the Decision about Building Conditions, the Decision about Environmental Conditions of Investment Realization, the Decision about Settling Investment Location for Public Use, the Decision about Permission for Road Investment Realization and the Decision about Building Permit.

On behalf of the investor we also prepare applications for Local Plans of Land Management, and we also represent him in the procedure of their preparation. During the investment realization we conduct author’s supervisions and technical support. If necessary, we help and advise in the procedure of giving the facility away for use.
