Family Background

Engineer Kazimierz Pawłowicz was born in Kalisz, Poland in 1871 and died in Warsaw on June 16th 1927 of complications following an apendicitis. 

His parents were Edward Pawłowicz, born in Żmudź/Samogitia  (1837-1895) and Marja Szaniawska (1840-1905). He had 3 brothers: Jan Pawłowicz, Józef Pawłowicz and Edward Pawłowicz Junior and 5 sisters: Jadwiga, Marja, Aniela, Zofia and Wanda.

In 1895 he married Helena Bożeniec- Jełowicka h. Brama  with whom he had two children: Krystyna and Bohdan.

He was a ceramic engineer in the brick-making and construction business, who made his fortune building/managing brick factories in Russia and Japan and later developing housing estates in Poland.

From 1901 to 1902,  the family moved to Dąbrowa Górnicza and in 1902 to Korwinów, where he was appointed director of the “Korwinów” brick factory near Częstochowa.  His son, Bohdan, describes some of the memories of these times in the article  “Wspomnienia Z dzieciństwa” [Memories of Childhood]. In 1909, the family moved back to Warsaw, where he opened his own technical consulting office and around 1913 they moved into their own house on Kanonia 14.


City Garden Czerniaków (Miasto-Ogród Czerniaków) 

Kazimierz Pawłowicz was considered one of the creators of the Czerniaków Garden City. He was; a member of the management board of the company that parceled the local land for development and built his house on Gorazsewska 8 in 1924.

The house later was burnt to the ground by the Germans at the end of World War II and in its place there is today a green square surrounded by Goraszewska, Jodłowa, Zakręt and Kąkolewska Streets.

Hawk Mountain (Jastrzębia Góra)

Willa Pawłowicz was one of the first houses on Jastrzębia Góra. It was designed and built by Kazimierz Pawłowicz  between 1921-1922. The family would spend the summer holidays there until the war, when it was abandoned. It was later occupied by gipsy families.
