Janusz and Bożena Włodarczyk, Architects

At the end of the 1950s, at the invitation of Kazimierz and Hanna Wejchert, they came to Upper Silesia where they linked their professional and private lives during the construction of the new Tychy. Their joint projects and implementation of educational, residential, service, commercial and sacred buildings have become a permanent feature of the town’s landscape and that of many other towns in the Silesian voivodeship.
