Hi! I'm Mikolaj Zajda

and I can be your Architect

2 years experience, 6 offices

in the middle of the studies? No problem.

Less is more or lesss is a bore?

In pure architecture the smallest detail

should have a meaning or serve a purpose.

When I'm asked what my best project is,

I always answer 'the next one'.

Who I am?

I am 26 year old Architect Engineer, Associate AIA, currently working at JAHN architectural office in Chicago. I graduated with Master of Architecture degree at Poznan University of Technology. Until today, I have gathered almost 2 year of international experience and still looking for more. Besides architecture, I am also a graphic designer and journalist. You can take a look at my work around.

STATE Amsterdam





PROGRAM: Residential
TEAM: Adam Smit, Joris Deur, Daniel Kaufmann, Leon Koning, Zuzanna Dziedzic, Mikołaj Zajda - during internship in ZZDP

LEADER: Adam Smit

STATUS: Nearly completed

LOCATION: Amsterdam, The Netherlands




STATE is soon set to glitter in the Amstel district, a new area in Amsterdam between Zuid and Watergraafsmeer that is located right on the Amstel. Close to the centre, surrounded by greenery and water. An unparalleled location with hip hotspots, authentic hidden gems and historic buildings. The contours are already discernible. A bone fide Amsterdam neighbourhood currently under development: the Amstel district. It’s a highly diverse neighbourhood, where children romp about and sports enthusiasts run in the new municipal park alongside the Amstel. A place where people like to visit the pedestrianised riverbanks to gaze across the water or to watch the rowers. Discover the Hesp "brown" café, the Amstelscheg nature reserve and recreational area, and the Dauphine and IJsbreker café-restaurants: there's something for everyone.

Thanks to its central location, it takes no time at all to reach the centre (15 min.), the A10 motorway (5 min.), Schiphol (15 min.) or the Groene Hart meadows (30 min.). By bike, you can cycle to the Museum district, the Dam, the Albert Cuyp or the Pijp in a trice. Amstel station is within walking distance. In a nutshell: a unique residential environment for modern world citizens who lead an active life but also want to enjoy peace and tranquillity.
