FALA is a Gdansk-based multidisciplinary design and research office established by Kamila Szatanowska and Paulina Rogalska in 2018. FALA has gained over the years an experience in both large-scale public architecture and smaller residential projects. Currently, the collective is focused on multifaceted design in the context of progressive climate change.


FALA was conceived by the two of us: Kamila Szatanowska and Paulina Rogalska. We met years ago during our architectural studies. What drove us to create FALA was the process of winning our first international competition, Iceland Northern Lights Rooms. Since then, taking part in competitions has been the base of our work. Name FALA was inspired by our local context of the seaside region that shaped us both personally and professionally. For us, it also signifies a change and a real connection with nature in our work. It does not matter whether we design a public building, private house, interior or a birdhouse. What really counts is the meaning each project has. If our goal is aligned with our ethical approach that revolves around the non-invasive relationship of anthropocentric creations with the needs of other species and nature, we go for it.
