Polish architects. They rebuilt (1947–8) the Śleszyńskich Palace, Warsaw, after its destruction in the 1939–45 war.

Waleczynch (1930—with exaggerated ‘functionalist imagery’), and various housing estates (e.g. Osiedle Koło WSM (1947–56), Osiedle Praga I (1948–52), and Osiedle Rakowiec (1931–6—with others), etc.).
