Esteemed designer of public spaces, associated with the Faculty of Design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw - Dr Paweł Grobelny - received the 'Property Design Award 2024' in the 'public space' category for his project to develop the waterfront of Słupeckie Lake in Wielkopolska. The results of the competition were announced during the '4 Design Days' at the International Congress Centre in Katowice.

This year, the jury of the 'Property Design Award 2024′, consisting of eminent experts from the architecture and design industry, chose Pawel Grobelny’s project as a symbol of an innovative approach to shaping urban space.

Development of the waterfront of Lake Słupeckie in Wielkopolska

Grobelny's latest project is a revolutionary development of the waterfront of Lake Słupeckie in Wielkopolska. Appreciated by the jury, a series of circle-shaped piers, a pier with a viewing platform and minimalist platforms on Słupeckie Lake blend harmoniously with the natural landscape of the lake; they create a space that is friendly to residents and tourists.

In harmony with nature

Paweł Grobelny’s project is an example of the perfect combination of the art of design and respect for the natural environment. The designer focused on smaller objects that not only compliment the landscape, but also encourage active use of the space. The piers and viewing platforms are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also functional – allowing visitors to fully experience the beauty of the natural surroundings.
