A few years later, the project was noticed by an Investor from the Lublin region, who was in the possession of an old windmill. The initial concept has undergone the necessary modifications and has been adapted to customer requirements as well as technical and local conditions.

The building was designed to fit into the rural landscape. Its form is a well-known, characteristic and strong element of the traditional architecture of the Polish countryside. At the same time, the building is trying to cope with the modern way of living and to properly fulfill its new residential function.

The old mill gains a second life and new modernized look. Simultaneously it doesn’t lose its original expression and form. Structure has new elements: underground floor, terrace, large glazing on the ground floor and smaller narrow windows on the next floors.

Building has unique facade with old boards from the former construction. Many elements from the original windmill have found their place in the new building. The process of creation is a combination of a bold and innovative design idea, technical workshop, and the brave approach of the Investor.
