THE OFFICE

 
 

Le 2 Workshop is an architectural company founded by architects Jędrzej Lewandowski and Lilianna Prus, both teaching and preparing Phd's in architecture at Technical University of Łódź.

Jędrzej Lewandowski's experience, gained during studies in Poland and Sweden, as well as the internship at the Velux headquarters in Denmark, had an exceptional impact on the character of the architecture created by Le 2 Workshop team.

In 2008, Jędrzej's projects were noticed by the world media because of the awards won in three separate editions of the international architectural competition organized by World Architecture Community. Within three years, his projects have been published by several printed and online magazines in the U.S., EU and China. Prestigious MARK magazine published twice the projects of houses by Le 2 Workshop.

At the beginning of 2011, the popular American news reporting website the Daily Beast published a House On The Water project by Jędrzej Lewandowski ranked together with the house of Bill Gates. This project has also appeared in the pages of Hong Kong Oriental Daily News and Newsweek Poland.

In 2011, Le 2 Workshop joined a small group of Polish architectural offices recommended by the Swiss catalogue World-Architects.com.

Le 2 Workshop is a continuation of previous work done to create architecture full of commitment, passion and originality.
