Grzybowski Square, Warsaw
The service-office building located at Grzybowska Square 12/16 in Warsaw was designed on a plot of land with an area of 4,200 square meters, between the Cosmopolitan building and a row of pre-war tenement houses.The building consists of three volumes: a four-story podium that continues the eastern facade of the square, and two towers measuring eighty and fifty meters in height, respectively. The total usable area of the building is 21,500 square meters.
The facade of the towers features a distinct pattern of prefabricated concrete construction. Vertical and horizontal divisions create a grid of squares spanning the full height of each floor, which also determines the rhythm of window openings.
In the lower part of the building, in addition to glass and concrete, an additional material - a curtain wall made of stretched mesh - was used on the facade.
The ground floor of the building is designed as an arcade, with entrances to services directly accessible from street level: shops, restaurants, and cafes.
