As some architectural relics are very conveniently located, their historic interiors have become home to public-utility institutions.

The PAGED Company Tenement House

A successful company PAGED, i.e. Polish Agency for Wood Exportation, invested in building of one of the first office and residential buildings: that is how this impressive, elegant tenement house came into being.

Jan Bochniak was the first architect in Gdynia to apply vertical division of elevation: its middle part, higher by 1 storey, is highlighted by contrasting lesenes. The cornice is also strongly emphasized. This tenement house served as an example for designers of many later designs. At present the building houses Bureau for Forest Management and Geodesy. This building is on Gdynia modernism route.
