Narwiański National Park protects within its boundaries a unique natural phenomenon - the only river in Europe with an anastomsing channel type. In its area Narew flows at the same time with many winding channels. Their extensive network is a labyrinth of narrow canals and green islets. Due to the difficult access to the deeper parts of the Park, this area has become a refuge for many animal species, especially birds. In wetlands there are numerous rare and protected species of plants. The role of the Park is to protect the river ecosystem, and the researchers employed by it carry out numerous research projects to better understand and describe the phenomenon and processes within it.
The aim of the work is to design a Scientific Base for the Narew National Park. Entering the riverside landscape, the building complex is expected to feature a variety of functions. The most important of these is the science-research function: The Scientific Base contain laboratories that allow researchers employed in the Park to maintain their studies. There is also an educational and workshop part, where school students and tourists can broaden their knowledge of the unique ecosystem of the Narew river . In addition, the complex includes a small accommodation facility, enabling accommodation for researchers working in it, and a kayak harbour. The whole is supplemented by an outdoor exhibition, lookout tower and pedestrian footbridge allowing access to the wetlands of the Park.
The site on which the Scientific Base is being designed is located at the western end of Bokiny village. Its terrain gently slides towards its southern end, where flows the Narew river.
