The city always lacks some green space, some quite corners, some place to escape. It is especially hard to fine cozy locations to live in the downtown.
Such green yard, completely private and separated from the busy street traffic and flow of tourists, has always been at 5 Krakivska Street, but until now, it was inaccessible. The customer has contracted us to restore and transform a historic building into the hostel and auxiliary facilities. The very existence of the courtyard became the basis for the ground floor adaptation.
Now, one may see the greenery hidden inside from the very gates on the Krakivska Street.
