Crooked House by Szotynscy & Zaleski – Sopot, Poland
Krzywy Domek is a strange name, and an even stranger building that serves as a shopping center in Sopot, Poland that looks more like a carnival funhouse than a multipurpose building. In translation, the Krzywy Domek means Crooked House designed by Szotyńscy & Zaleski.
The architects sought to bring a different aesthetic to the surrounding area in Sopot that makes for a happy diversion from the brick and strictly business feel along this stretch of Poland. We must say they were successful in their vision. Take a look at this wacky building and let us know what you think of the Crooked House.
