The project included thorough reconstruction of the existing development quarter – demolition of the 1970s Hotel Rzeszow, other smaller residential buildings located on the plot, liquidation of Borelowskiego Street,  reconstruction of Tarnobrzeski Viaduct and surrounding streets. As a result, a 4-storey, dismembered block was created with a hotel located on its roof and a two-storey car park.

The plot in the city center, surrounded by busy streets and railway tracks, did not allow for free organization of the construction site. Additional problems were generated by deeply-placed bearing soil and very high groundwater level.

The building uses many unconventional solutions, such as double spiral downhill ramps, modelled on the idea of Leonardo da Vinci, used in Chambord Castle.

The Galeria Rzeszow building has become one of the most recognizable elements of the panorama of contemporary Rzeszow, a venue for numerous events and year-round meetings of residents.



The challenge was to shape a huge block not to overwhelm surrounding, much smaller buildings, and at the same time form distinct dominant in the city center.
