More info: Szotynscy Zaleski was heavily inspired by the children’s illustrations created by Jan Marcin Szancer for fairytales and by the artwork of Per Dahlberg.  The home features three stories and is built with the surrounding buildings in mind to give it the feel as though it belongs in the area but perhaps melted or sagged out of exhaustion. Located in the Rezydent shopping center in downtown Sopot, Poland the Crooked House has become the most photographed building in the whole country.
