OneByNine tried to minimize southern facade which is most exposed to the sun while the west facade are also being protected from the sun. The building is connected with independent entrance with subway station “swietokrzyska”.

The structure is based on bracing on the facade that to avoid structural columns inside the building in order to get more office space.

    Nice to see good design from Poland.
    Perhaps its not the best design in the world but Warsaw needs this kind of buildings to cover old ones from communism times.
