Treasury of the Commonwealth - revitalization and interior design of the Krasiński Palace (Palace of the Commonwealth) in Warsaw.

The Palace of the Commonwealth and the adjacent Krasiński Garden form a palace-cum-garden complex (French: entre cour et jardin) which was typical of the Baroque style. Built in the years 1688–1699, according to Tylman van Gameren’s design, was unanimously considered by the contemporaries as one of the most beautiful magnate palaces in Warsaw.

Presently, the Palace houses special collections comprising manuscripts, early printed books, as well a Special
Collection Reading Room. Recently established Polish Jazz Archive collects materials connected with the remarkable history of Polish Jazz music.
