In the era of where universal architectural forms dominate, there is growing demand for architecture, which, in addition to meeting contemporary functional and technological requirements, also show the identity of its region. It is of key importance in shaping the relationship between space and the community. The visible bond between the past and the present creates a continuity of the cultural environment ensuring its further sustainable development. Due to the exceptional landscape of the Kraków-Częstochowa Uplands, the author draws attention to the issue of cultural continuity in this area. On the one hand, it seems necessary to preserve the native spatial forms that are part of the regional landscape. On the other, to develop new forms that fit with the identity of local buildings and constitute a natural and consistent continuation of the changing panorama of the Jurassic countryside.
