Since the very beginning of its existence, Foksal Street has been an address for the elites. In the 18th century an elegant city garden was created here, modelled on London’s Vauxhall Park, where balls and shows were organised. In the following century, the Warsaw aristocracy and bourgeoisie began to build their palaces and residences along the former garden avenue. In the interwar period, Foksal Street became the favourite meeting place of the capital’s high society, that would spend their time in the famous Café Snob and Café Bodo.
In 1895-1898, two luxurious tenement houses were built at Foksal 13 and 15, designed and constructed by the architect Artur Otton Spitzbarth. From the beginning, they were home to many eminent figures of merit for Polish culture and statehood, such as the war hero Kazimierz Kubala, the painter Zygmunt Badowski or the poet Stefan Napierski. In the interwar period, ministers and senators of the reborn Poland also lived here, including Stanisław Grabski, Ignacy Radlicki, Juliusz Zdanowski and Emil Godlewski. In the 1930s, the building at Foksal 13 became the property of the famous entrepreneur and “king of chocolate”, Jan Wedel, who rebuilt it and equipped it with numerous modern amenities, such as the first panoramic lift in Warsaw.

Behind the elegant façades of the Foksal 13/15 tennant houses there are magnificent courtyards and lavish staircases, decorated with colourful polychromes, marbles, beautifully carved portals and hand-forged balustrades.
The 4-metre high apartments could compete with charm and splendour of aristocratic residences, and their magnificent interiors impress with a wealth of nearly 100 patterns of antique stucco and 20 mosaic parquet floors.
