Poland Echo shows off Ogrody Graua

Residential
The Ogrody Graua development, which is being created through the renovation and extension of a former palace in Wrocław, is to comprise eight luxury apartments, two of which will be completed this month.

The interiors designed by Maćków Pracownia Projektowa are inspired by the impressionist artist working at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries.

The palace is an important part of the Ogrody Graua project. We are sure that highly demanding residents that are looking for something more than a good location and a good layout will feel at home. Now our clients can choose how their apartments are finished, which is something that will characterise the project. These ready prepared interiors will add to this pearl of Wrocław architecture.
Dawid Wrona, the sales director at Echo Investment.
