Atelier Starzak Strebicki
Jola Starzak i Dawid Strebicki
Architects and urban planners. Following their studies in the Netherlands and many years of working for design engineering studios in Belgium and in the Netherlands, they established their own design engineering studio in 2011. Presently, they are working on furniture, interior, architectural and urban design projects in Poland and Belgium. What intrigues them about design is the diverse scale of design work: from furniture, through house and interior design, to the city planning scale – presently, the studio is working on the urban plan for the centre of Strombeek (located near Brussels). Atelier Starzak Strebicki’s architects are also fond of temporary architecture and experiments on the urban fabric, such as the project for the temporary space planning for Plac Wolności in Poznań, which the studio is implementing for the international Malta Festival, and the mobile urban furniture project, dedicated to the court space of Poznań City Hall. Since 2011, the architects have been cooperating with School of Form. Since 2013, they have also been working with the ‘Zawód:Architekt’ magazine, writing articles aimed at introducing Polish designers to the condition of the architect’s profession in Belgium and in the Netherlands. In 2016 , the studio was invited to participate in the 15th Venice Biennale of Architecture – one of the architects’ projects (“Kijgat”) is presently being exhibited at the Biennale in the Belgian Pavilion.
