It has been a privilege of Dubiński joinery Studio to take part in numerous renovations, saving precious mansions and palaces from oblivion. We are particularly proud of our work in two objects:
1. Railway Station in Malbork
2. Mansion in Lviv
Railway Station in Malbork
It took twenty one months of intense renovation efforts to bring back the original beauty of this precious, 19th century station building. Upon its opening, the vice-president of PKP – a national railways operator – referred to Malbork station as a gem of railway architecture in Europe.
The renovation was extremely thorough and meticulous. Original coats of arms, polychromes, wooden beams and columns were renovated while decorations and gildings were recreated. However, as an expression of care for historical legacy of the place, certain details, such as World War II bullet holes were preserved.
Historical double windows and doors were given particular attention during the renovation process. The restorer wished to preserve as much of the original fabric of woodwork as possible. Therefore, the repairs and restoration works required the use of most advanced nanotechnological products in order to, on one hand, secure the durability of renovated elements, and on the other hand, to assure that their visual character remained unchanged.
Today the station once again pleases the eyes of passengers travelling along the busy Gdańsk-Warsaw railway line, which runs through Malbork. We are pleased that our woodwork craftsmanship had the chance contribute to this unique project.
Mansion in Lviv
Our Studio had the privilege to participate in the project of revitalisation of a enchanting, historical mansion in Lviv, Ukraine. The building, constructed in 19th century represented a truly saddening state. In the basement, where negligence took most of its toll, the ceilings and walls were badly damaged and damp. The rest of the mansion did not fare much better throughout the years.
The renovation works were divided between various contractors; our Studio’s task was to replace the stairs and all internal doors. It is a source of our pride that, after the completion of the works, our company was the only one to receive an individual recommendation letter, as well as a letter expressing gratitude for our work. We have earned this appreciation through quality, reliability and timeliness of our performance. We also consider a privilege to have been able to contribute to the
