Marek Stępa, Deputy Mayor of Gdynia, justifying the jury's decision, said: "The newly designed buildings are in harmony with the modernist architecture of Gdynia.

Public, yet intimate nature of urban interiors are characterized by a human scale, conducive to creating a good atmosphere and the "life between the buildings."
