design a variety of hospitality, retail, and other
commercial interiors, as well as products. Their
projects in Wrocław include the restaurants
Campo (page 106), Soczewka, and Dinette (right),
as well as the patisserie Nanan (above). They

You
Should
Know
BUCK
STUDIO
Why did you decide to start your own practice
after working for other firms?
We prefer a more personal environment where
we can develop our multidisciplinary approach
and work on really challenging projects where
marketing and branding complement architecture
and interior design.
What is the most important thing you learned
from your previous experience that informs
your design work today?
Consistency is as important as creativity.
This refers to every aspect, element, and phase
of a project, from research and analysis through
developing a concept and design solutions to design
implementation, functionality, and maintenance
of the place.
What differentiates your work and
design approach?
The studio has a multidisciplinary approach,
combining design, architecture, branding,
and visual communication. This allows us to create
hospitality and other interior projects as unique,
consistent, and inspiring customer experiences.
Also, providing all design services in-house
is much more efficient, and that allows for time
and cost savings for the client.
In your opinion, what is important in
design today?
Designing is not only about making decisions
on aesthetics, it is making decisions on experience.
Therefore, what we focus on in our work
is designing experiences.
What's next for Buck Studio?
We are working on new interiors and retail
concepts, including a food hall, a chain of vegetarian
restaurants, and a Mercedes-Benz showroom.
We are also working on a new dining furniture
series that we hope will be commercially available
early next year. c
