Detail from the panorama of Kraków in “Civitates Orbis Terrarum” (1617) Why “Castellan”? - The office of kasztelan (or “castellan”) was created in the early 13th century by the Piast Kings. Over the course of centuries, Poland’s castellans – and their legal and spiritual successors – were charged with managing, maintaining, and expanding many of the historical buildings and estates that lie at the heart of our business.

That spirit of faithful, innovative stewardship demonstrated by generations of castellans is something that we can look to today for inspiration, as we strive to preserve, adapt, and revitalize uniquely treasured homes and post-industrial structures for novel commercial and residential uses in the 21st century.
