The building of the Maritime Office in Szczecin, called the Red Town Hall, is an excellent example of 19th century neo-Gothic in full bloom. Any modernization work on the premises of such a building must take into account the requirements of this architectural trend. This also applies to seemingly minor changes, such as the installation of barriers in the staircase.
The interior of the Maritime Office – the details count
The Maritime Office is quite a unique case among Polish state institutions – there are only three such offices in the country, one of them in Szczecin. The building in which the Office currently operates is even more unusual. Its designer focused mainly on monumentality and the characteristic splendor of neo-Gothic, thanks to which it would be difficult to visit Szczecin, passing indifferently by this impressive building. The interiors of the Maritime Office in the Red Town Hall also space so unusually that they require tailor-made design solutions.
Perfect barriers – we have something to boast about!
Kowalstwo Przemysław Szymański company had the opportunity to face several challenges during the execution of steel barriers, designed to protect stairs in the oval staircase of the Office. We assure you that the impression of simplicity is only an illusion here. The balustrades and railing catchings caused us many hours of hard work to achieve a staircase fence that will fit the building entirely. What is more, the materials used here are the most ordinary flat bars and rods, which have turned into fancy, yet 100% stable details thanks to traditional blacksmithing methods.
