A social initiative, connecting people of different professions, formed in order to save wooden monuments. The responsibilities are divided between the Departments of Wood Conservation and Architecture of the Warsaw University of Life Sciences, and the Androlli Foundation. A team from Wood Conservation Department prepared the assessment of the technical condition of the monument. Another team from Architecture, attempted to save the original monuments' substance and proposed a new form of adaptation for the Wooden Villa. The enthusiasts of old wooden architecture from the Andriolli Foundation researched the history of the building and took care of the legal aspects. In other hand work on a historic wooden building forces on conservator to make detailed analysis and research of the conservation status of structural and decorative wooden elements. The conservation program must take into account the historical destiny of the building, but also the requirements of modern construction. It often involves the need to adapt it to new conditions. The paper presents also the problems that a conservator has to solve to preserve as much historical substance as possible in order to adapt to new needs and, above all, to take care of the safety of users of modern facilities. How deep he can ingere in historical susbtance to protect them? The aim of the presentation is to present our experiences of cooperation between different organizations focused on saving a wooden building and conservation dilemma which they met. The reflections are presented on the Gurewicz Pension located in the Otwock in Poland.
