One weekend in Lodz- Part 218.2.14
With any travelling you need a place to sleep - either you can stay at "Bedrooms" which is exactly at Piotrkowska street or you can enjoy your stay at "Loftaparts" being further away from the city center but therefore on can live in a luxurious loft!
Similarly in London or Berlin, OFF continues to attract new local businesses following current trends and fashions. We love the fact that the whole project has taken on its own steam and thrives in the crumbling beauty of the old buildings. The past, the present and the future all coexist without the need for the kind of massive investment which would destroy the place of its cool glamour.
One of the most intriguing places in Poland, Księży Młyn (Priest's Mill) underwent a massive overhaul and is now open to the public. It is a vast district, which has survived almost unaffected since the period of the flowering of industrial Lodz. In the 19th century, Karol W. Scheibler – one of the biggest manufacturers in Lodz, built an industrial and residential complex, a type of city inside the city. Its urban arrangement and architecture were modeled on English industrial settlements. Księży Młyn is composed of systematically arranged and architecturally uniform factory buildings, a housing estate, mansions of the owners and villas of directors with gardens, as well as streets and railway sidings, a school, two hospitals, a fire brigade depot, a gas-works and a factory club. The quarter is located between ul. Tymienieckiego, Przędzalniana, Fabryczna, Kilińskiego.
OFF Piotrkowska shows a variety of restaurants in its typical modern industrial interior like I mentioned before. Spółdzielnia with its classical, young and fresh design dominated by geometrical figures styled in black and white colors, attracts young and old foodies.
