Reconstruction works aimed at recovery of destroyed architectural structure require not only high qualifications in theory and practice but also a huge amount of work and active involvement of the team. We can look closer at the processes accompanying such a venture on an example of a very successful reconstruction of the street townhouse elevation on Waryńskiego Street. The task, both difficult and satisfying, combines different aspects of the undertaken activities: a thorough historic-architectural research, technical and legal solutions and finally economic and social issues. Extensive works bringing back the brilliance of the forgotten buildings are based on a vast knowledge and harmonious cooperation in a large team of specialists involved in the project. Looking deep into such a venture is extremely inspiring; it also serves as an example of good practices in the field of improving the quality of urban spaces aesthetics.
