Brief information about the project from an architectural point of view: Dominikański is a modern, class A office scheme located in the very heart of Wrocław. It comprises two office buildings and the historical Oppersdorff Palace built in the first half of the 18th century. After Skanska included it into the Dominikański complex, the Palace be restored its former glory. The design for the Palace’s conversion was prepared in cooperation with building restorers, archaeologists and city officials. An architectural inventory of the whole building helped to replicate its primary form with special attention paid to its intrinsic elements. Dominikański fits very well in the place where it was created. The project was designed in the shape of a stack of slightly staggered books, which is closely associated with printing traditions of the area. The building has a characteristic, double, glass facade, as well as a patio available for citizens of the city.
