Little Crooked House, Poland
The ‘Little Crooked House’ (Krzywy Domek) was built in 2004 and is viewed as the ‘showpiece of Sopot’ in Poland. The fairytale-esque building was designed by architects Szotynscy & Zaleski who took inspiration from the children’s book illustrations of Jan Szancer.
The surreal building design incorporates warped walls, sandstone-framed windows, stone elevation decors and curved architectural stained glass, topped with a concave roof that uses blue-green enamelled shingles to give the impression of a cartoon dragon.
