PALO POKORNY, CHARTERED ARCHITECT, POKORNY ARCHITEKTI
After 15 years of architectural practice, Pało decided to radically change his approach to design. Since 2009, he has been designing his projects exclusively in an ultra-low-energy and passive house standard. A wide range of buildings can be found in the portfolio of its architectural office, from interiors to industrial factories; from exhibition expositions to administrative buildings. Recently, he has specialized in family houses and timber construction buildings with success in both the domestic and international architectural scene.
